    Rick at Welding Engineers was a great guy to talk to about replacing a recently dead “other brand” welder. He got me sorted in no time so I could continue with the urgent job I have in progress. So far the welder has performed flawlessly.

    Love cigweld gear
    Always turn to them for every job.
    Using 400 transmigs at the shop to weld and gouge
    And a 175i running 0.9mm gasless for site.
    Just bought this 205 AC/DC inverter and I’m already stoked with it.
    A freebie wouldn’t go astray but hahaha

    Wow! The WeldSkill 205AC/DC TIG Welder is half the weight of my 8 year old previous machine with slightly higher performance figures, half the footprint, takes up half the physical space, has longer cables, quality fittings, is portable and looks great to go with it. What more could I ask?

    I already have several CIGWELD welders and purchased this unit to work alongside my Transmig 175, which is my favorite go to welder because of its size and ease of use. The only one problem with the Transmig is that everyone wants to borrow it as its such unit.
