Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) March 7, 2011
The Eastwood Company, do-it-yourself innovators of automotive restoration tools, today launched an affordable, industrial quality TIG welder. The Eastwood TIG Welder is designed for the DIY fabricator who wants precise welding of thinner-gauge materials up to ¼" thick. The Eastwood TIG Welder sets up in minutes, has a high frequency start for precise tack welds, delivers ease of use and lower prices than comparable industrial units.
"During the test phase of development, the Eastwood TIG Welder was perfected to produce repeatable and consistent output using either AC or DC voltages in steels and aluminum alloys," said Mark Robidoux, creator of the Eastwood TIG Welder and one of Eastwood's top restoration experts. "Eastwood engineers were focused on developing a machine for the home hobbyist that has professional features, precise performance and ease of use at a price enthusiasts can afford."
The Eastwood TIG Welder is completely portable since it operates on 110VAC, 15-amp circuit or 220VAC, 30-amp circuit. The voltage-sensing inverter technology automatically switches the unit from 110 to 220 depending on the input. It delivers precise and consistent welding in aluminum, steel, stainless steel and copper; sheet, tube or bar stock.
Eastwood's TIG 200 Welder has an adjustable foot pedal and amperage control allowing accurate welding in aluminum and makes bench welding thinner materials easy. This unit incorporates a thumb control that will override the foot pedal for out of position welding, when bench welding with the foot pedal is not an option. "The arc is very stable, the torch is light weight, the AC square wave output and adjustability offer superior puddle control in aluminum and the foot pedal makes bench welding thinner materials very easy," commented Robidoux.
The Eastwood TIG Welder complete kit comes with a regulator, ground cable and clamp, foot pedal, torch and 110VAC to 220VAC adaptor plug. It is backed by Eastwood's three-year warranty. "Eastwood has made the commitment to only supply industrial grade TIG electrodes and welding rods; the same rods used by welding professionals to assure high purity alloys and consistent arc control for one electrode to another," assured Robidoux.
Eastwood markets unique tools and supplies for repair, restoration, and modification of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Founded in 1978, Eastwood constantly strives to develop new products to serve the home automotive hobbyist, as well as individuals and organizations focused on the restoration and preservation of automobiles and motorcycles.
