TIG welding takes some time to grasp and practice cetainly improves the breed, but if you want beautiful welds on items that will be exposed, particularly aluminium and stainless steel, TIG is the way to go. The arc is struck electronically, similar to a MIG weld, but the filler metal is introduced manually from a stick rather than fed automatically from a spool. It needs patience and a need to rotate the part rather than the tool but you know what they say: 'once you've gone TIG, you'll never go back'. Don't bee folled by the compact size of these units, they are made with the latest 'Planar' tech with Inverter technology for high performance, low power consumption and excellent reliability.
100% Duty Cycle, this is no toy even though it is small enough to be portable for site visits.

Full MMA compatibility upto4mm electrodes.
Automatic spontaneous shutdown if the arc fails.
