    Great TIG Welder

    0 5/5 FarmGirl - See all my reviews This review is from: TIG Welder, Precision TIG 225,208/230VAC (Misc.) We bought this particular item direct from Harris Welding Supply's website instead of through Amazon because it was cheaper that way! It was delivered by R&L Carriers! Arrived in perfect condition and worked flawlessly! Make sure you get the canvas cover and pick up some different electrodes ... 2% thoriated is apparently radioactive and dangerous went being ground! We like the 1.5% lanthanated electrodes ... good price when compared to the 2% lanthanated electrodes! If your a newbie TIG welder ... this is the perfect choice! Simplified controls makes getting started a breeze! Being a Lincoln you know there's a company that will stand behind it's products unlike the TRASH being made in China! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 30, 2012

    Smallest of the Precision Tigs

    0 3/5 Davy (Northwestern PA.) - See all my reviews This review is from: TIG Welder, Precision TIG 225,208/230VAC (Misc.) I bought this PT225 in the hopes it would be powerful enough to weld 6061-T6 2" structural aluminum square tubing with 1/4" wall . It did but not using 100% argon shielding gas...just not enough penetration. But once I switched to 50/50% argon/helium and a #8 gas lens, it welded with ease and only needed 215 amps AC.I deducted 1 star for the limited duty cycle of 10% at the upper end of the amperage range. I never hit the duty cycle but I was only making 2" long welds which probably only took 5 seconds.I deducted another star because this welder DOES NOT come with a stick stinger and twist-mate cable. That was an added expense of ~$70.Otherwise I like its added features like manual control of AC balance, tig pulse, and adjustable post flow gas timer. That feature saved me $$$ since argon/helium mix is much more expensive than argon alone. 0, April 7, 2015

    Good cutter/good product

    0 4/5 AhlJD - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This plasma cutter does as advertised - it cuts very well. And through 3/4" material. I have not yet tried it on 1" material. One of the things I dislike about this product is the consumables (electrodes, nozzles and ceramic cups) are not readily available at most welding supply shops. Most shops carry Hypertherm, Lincoln, Miller products, but (at least in my area) when I ask them about Everlast products, they just smile and say we don't carry that line, and good luck finding consumables for it. I have found one dealer ([...]) that stocks Everlast parts - including parts for the 50P. As of April 29, 2014 the electrodes are $5 each, nozzles are $5 each. They didn't have the ceramic cups in stock at that time (carry them, but just didn't have an inventory), so was not able to get a price for them. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 29, 2014

    Everlast Plasma 50P great performer

    I am an experienced tradesman who always consideres brand name quality tools. I concluded the 5 year warranty and the many options of the Supercut 50P Pilot ARC was reflective of a manufacturer who wanted to deliver a usable product and stand behind that product. I was tired of using saws alls, hack saws, grinders and belt sanders to fabricate my hot rod and other metal parts. I was planning a large fab job and needed a plasma cutter. The inverter technology along with the pilot arc option, which allows you to cut without cleaning were a must: Sometimes I recycle steel and it can be a little rusty. I received the machine directly from the manufacturer and delivery was very fast. I went right to work building upper frame mounts and lower axel mounts for an upgrade to coil over shocks. The machine performed great right out the box. The cutting tip has a foot guide which allows you to follow a speed square or other pattern to make straight cuts or repetitive shapes from a pattern.

    Great for the hobbyist and homebrewer

    I really wanted to get a higher end model using IGBTs instead of the older MOSFET switching technology on this, but couldn't justify the cost. A second major consideration is the unit, an inverter type, will run on 120vac--still waiting to wire a 240 outlet I can use. I've never used a plasma torch (but do weld), and found it fairly straightforward. The "manual", a half dozen printed pages, that came with it was very poor Chinglish without much relation to anything, but the PDF from the website was thorough and complete.I did call support, a couple times, mostly to clear up my ignorance. Had to leave a message each time, but he got back to me within a couple minutes, and was _very_ helpful, knowledgeable, and local, at least to the US. The current can be set on the front panel, but it didn't go to the rated 50amps, so I called. Voltage issue. My inverter welder's output is 140amp @120v VS 150amp @240, and I expected similar with the plasma unit. Not! Higher working voltage... 4/5 R.

    Great TIG Plasma Cutter combo welder

    0 5/5 Frugality - See all my reviews This review is from: Everlast PowerPro 256 250a TIG Stick Pulse 60a Plasma Cutter Multi Process Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) This is a good welder cutter for people like me who want a portable all-in-one to take on the road and not take a lot of space in the truck or in the garage. It is both AC and DC so it can weld aluminum and stainless steel which I needed. The plasma cutter is powerful too. The tig welder has all of the features I wanted like pulse and postflow and has great power and it came with all of the accessories included to get started. Tough little welder. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2013

    Great , plasma cutter and welder great packing yes yes yes yes buy buy buy

    0 5/5 Brian Maxwell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Everlast PowerPro 256 250a TIG Stick Pulse 60a Plasma Cutter Multi Process Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) I've heard lots of negativity about this welder and was worried about issues. Well I couldn't be happier with it, weld everything wit ease and the arc is the main st stable I've ever seen it will light up at even 2 amps. Packing was great and they upgraded me to a 256s which has more options and a smaller torch. Have cut 3\4 " plate like butoter. So all in all Dont be scared of this machine welds as good a 4000$ miller but you also can cut metal. Good luck 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2014

    very disappointing

    I contemplated for 6 months on buying the powerpro 256 before I pulled the trigger. Now I very much wish I would not have made the purchase. The welder did not ship on the estimated date it took a month after the payment was processed to receive the unit. I was told the Tig setup would be upgraded because of the confusion but that did not happen either. When it finally did arrive it was very cheaply made and the decals were already pealing off. It almost looked as if it had been used before. I decided I could live with the cosmetic issues as long as it worked as stated. I proceeded to hook it up using the very vague and confusing instructions. I tried it on the plasma cutting set up first disappointed, then the tig welder on ac setting disappointed, then tig on dc setting this was the only setting that I could get any use out if but it was not that great. I have a friend that owns a welding company and even he could not get a quality weld out of the unit.
