so, I went to Express Weld on Friday, brought some stainless and ally scrap and my helmet, and had a good play with the Handy Tig 200. What can i say... I was expecting something along the lines of the average 200 amp AC/DC TIG welder from the premium brands - I've used most of them, including multiple Lincolns, ESABs, Kemppis, etc, but I was blown away, honestly. The level of features on this thing and the quality just blows everything else in its price point away. I'd have to spend £4k to get anything equivalent, never mind better, I think. So I walked away with one, and a borrowed WP26 torch, I've ordered a WP20 sized up/down 8m torch, and they're going to try to sort me out a second hand cooler for cheap. It's like the designers though "we need a cheaper do-it-all AC/DC unit, so we'll make one with the basic functions easily adjustable, but we'll leave everything else in there as well so you can make it do anything you're actually likely to need and plenty stuff you probably won't". They've REALLY thought about how most people use a TIG welder, both for casual repair work, and industrial work. Obviously a T220 control panel is laid out in a better way for professional use, but I think it's unbelievable how they've managed to do this machine, for this price point, that WILL do it all anyways. Shout out to Express Weld in Preston - a bunch of very friendly, helpful and crucially, knowledgeable people One thing that I didn't really get - ran some stick welds with it yesterday, but it wouldn't run 7018 properly. After realising what the sucking noise was, swapped the polarity from a marked EP to EN, same as for the TIG torch... but there must be some software switch of the polarity internally in stick mode?
