Thread: Tigweld 250ex review

  2. #12
    I like seeing these reviews on the 250EX because I just bought one! Haven't got in unpacked yet but hope to have it up and running in the next week or so. I'm not going to lie, as a newbie to TIG (amateur hobbyist here) I am intimidated with all the programing that can be done with it.

    Lake I like to see people pick up skills, and the first step is to invest in your self. The machine is pretty simple once you sit down with it and get some time welding, just remember that all machine (even same models) do not act the same with the identical settings. When welding aluminum, the more cleaning action you set the fast the the tungsten will ball up, slight rounding is good but this inverter machine does not like when there is huge ball on the ended like transformer machines. DC welding is straight forward just keep the absolute shortest arc length possible for a good clean weld.
    Machines:
