Thermal Arc 201TS TIG welder - DC HF TIG/MMA 200amp with accessories. It is in good used condition; everything works, nothing is broken (although there is a cut in the insulation on the earth lead) and the tamper seals on the main case screws are still intact - it has never been opened or needed any repair. I don't think I've ever turned it up past about 130amps and it hasn't lived a hard life because I'm a hobbyist.The standard items included are. #26 TIG torch with button and current adjuster on torch handle, including. Collets and collet bodies for 1.0, 1.6, 2.4 and 3.2mm tungstens. Long back-cap and short back-cap. 1-2off each of 1.0, 1.6 and 2.4mm 2% thoriated (red band) tungstens (best choice for steels IMHO).
Manual Metal Arc (MMA,'stick') torch. Shielding gas hose for connection to your gas cylinder. Shoulder strap (not pictured but never been used). Plus items I have added to get you started.
10off each of 1.0mm mild, 1.6mm mild, 1.0mm SS308L (generally used for 304) and 1.6mm SS316L (higher Cr content needed to preserve corrosion resistance in the melt region of 316 stainless). The L designation is standard and means the filler alloy is super low in carbon to help prevent your welds cracking through precipitation of mega-brittle chromium carbides as the weld solidifies.
15off 3.2mm 6013 MMA electrodes. These should be given perhaps 20 minutes in an oven to bake out any moisture in the flux coating before use. This won't make them taste any better but they will weld better. Note this welder is NOT suitable for welding aluminium as it is a DC welder. With the MMA torch attached it will do stick/arc welding.This is a really great setup if youre new to TIG - the HF start means striking up the arc doesnt depend on scratching the tungsten on the job and getting it contaminated or stuck. Whilst the welder does not come with a pedal, one can easily be fitted.
That said, operating a foot pedal takes practise and I never found it necessary for steels. When you're developing your technique you NEED a welder that performs consistently. I do not have the manual, however it is widely available online.
I will consider any well-substantiated offer. Collection only from RG26 please, due to weight and size.
