    Default New Tig Welder

    Well, my son and I are going to pick up the precision 225 tig today, and i hope i don't regret it later.
    I really cant afford the 275 but also don't want to have to step up at a later date.
    The purpose of the welder is home hobby work on SS exhaust. Anyway, we are excited.

    I am excited for you. I want a little Miller Tig for I can weld some thin tubing. I have a Millermatic 251 its great. Have three lathes and one knee mill and a old 8x24 Kalamazoo Saw.

    Well I do have several handy tools. And what I am trying to figure out now is how to build a angle iron notcher cheap. I just use a hack saw and I am getting to old for that. I would like to use a bottle jack. Is that even possible? I am going to make a new post on that subject.

    You'll enjoy the PT225. I spent about 3 hrs. working with mine this morning. Great machine. Make sure you get the stick lead for it also. It's a great stick welder too.

    An angle grinder with an .045 thick cutting wheel works great too. You'll learn to use those cut off wheels for a lot of things once you use them. I don't know what I do without them or how I ever lived without them. For the heavy angles I still use the O/A torch.
