    Picked up a Lorch HandyTig 200 from badger1bear (simon) on saturday. Havent had that much of a play yet but it got its first job today. x12 304 Stainless Steel Exhaust Flanges. Autogenously welded as fit up is perfect, 90 amps on pulse. 40% background, 33Hz, 33% on time. Shame the weld won't get seen once fitted to the bike.

    Very pleased with the machine so far, it just exudes quality and looks the part sitting on the bench or being wheeled about in the case, very professional. Amazing how hot it runs compared to my R-Tech. Look forward to cutting some aluminium coupons to practice on.

    Size 7 Stubby Ceramic, 1.6mm Stubby Gas lens, HFT 1.6mm tungsten. Gas around 6lpm.

    I'll be interested to know how you get on with her on AC.
    When I had a play with it I found its arc characteristics to be superb.

    AC fillet. I'm well out of practice to be completely honest. Probably been a few months since I even switched my r tech over to AC, so more practice is definitely needed on my part! Can't fault the machine, its beautiful.

    If you were lucky mate. You kept blaming the poor little lorch was only allowing you to listen to classic fm in the van.
    Don't worry mate I believed you :whistle:

    Done some pipes. Love the arc on this machine, super smooth and steady. These are 0.9mm mild steel.
