    Lincoln Invertec V205-T AC/DC

    I 'm looking at TIG machines and my welding guy (Lincoln) says that the Invertec V205-T AC/DC with water cooling is the one fullfilling my requests.

    does anyone know if its a good machine or if its just one of those that you keep for a while only to discover later that you should have bought another better bigger machine?

    I'll probably not be in the market for a TIG before end of this year.

    thanks!
    Have Fun!

    I'm all for water cooling. I'll never go back to an air-cooled torch. As far as the actual machine, if it's a Lincoln, I'm sure it's a quality machine. You might want to look over the Miller website for their competing product and see if their machine jogs a question or two for your rep.

    www.htpweld.com has a similar unit and it gets good reviews. Their service also generally gets the nod.

    Hey Tigergutt, the Lincoln works good .Miller has had their inverter out a lot longer .I have a Miller Dynasty 300 , I love it . Keep in mind the warrenty . Inverters can get pricey to fix .How often do you use the machine and for what ? I only ask because it's alot of money to spend if you don't need to .

    I dont have a tig so I dont use it right now
    I'll have to get one and learn to use it... I just hate having to source out stuff as it eats up valuable time.
    I checked out the miller one as well and it looks very nice, the reason for considering the lincoln is due to the fact that its what aviable here in Italy
    Have Fun!
