Many of the same companies that manufacture plasma cutters also have various high quality TIG welders that we have listed for sale on this page specifically.
Some of the most popular manufacturers include Everlast, Miller, AHP, Eastwood, Lincoln, ESAB and Hobart. The right machine for you will depend on the type of job you’re hoping to use it for, whether it is aluminum welding or some other job, as well as whether you’re a hobbyist or someone who requires an entirely different piece of equipment.
Do you specifically want a machine that offers AC/DC, then be sure to check the corresponding boxes and filters.
According to search volume, these are some of the most popular TIG welders on the market, although they may not be what best serves your purpose: Eastwood TIG 200, Lincoln Square Wave 200, Miller Dynasty 200, Miller Dynasty 200 DX, Primeweld Tig 225, Lincoln TIG 225 AC/DC.
The welding machine that is right for you depends on both your budget and what it is you’re trying to accomplish with it.
When you’re considering buying a TIG welder there are a bunch of different factors we suggest you think about, as you may otherwise end up with a machine that does not achieve what you were hoping for:
- Pulsed welding
Gone are the days when you would only be able to expect 20 pulses per second as newer machines can offer upwards of 5,000 pulses during the same amount of time giving you a much better ability to control the applied heat, ensuring better welds that are significantly stronger, as well as a cleaner weld that takes less time to clean.
Some plasma cutters are more or less portable, and the same applies to TIG welders. A machine weighing 100 pounds will surely be more of a beast to move than one that weighs half that amount.
- A quality foot pedal
You will often end up having to use the machine in situations where both of your hands will be busy, why having a good foot pedal is important to avoid large puddles.
