    Default TIG with SA 200

    I've noticed at work that all of us that are doing any tig work are running either 300D's, vantages or 305g's. How come no ones uses a 200? I was told they don't tig very nice but what makes them differrent?

    The SA-200's tig fine, the flat out slickest pipe tig welds I've ever laid eyes on have been made with old 200's in a hootch.
    The Vantages give you some advantages no pun intended but don't ever discount a slick pipe hand with a 50 year old pipeliner and a well worn tig rig on a 100% xray gig.
    And of course in that world there is no such thing as a foot pedal and the welder might be far away from the truck up in a pipe rack on a hanging scaffold.

    Some days you eat the bear. And some days the bear eats you.

    I second that. I've seen a few guys that did great scratch start tig from 200's and 250D's.
