A speedy look at this full-featured TIG welder that can be at your doorstep for less than a grand. Thanks to PrimeWeld for providing a machine to give an honest review, which furninshing of the machine was the only sponsorship for this video. Only a decade ago, TIG welding machine features like square-wave alternating current and pulse capability were only available in the most expensive models. There are now machines available will all of these features at a much lower price. The PrimeWeld TIG 225X in one such machine and has received a lot of attention. I am so excited to have one of these in the shop and to try it out to see how it stacks up for gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding. We also test out it's ability to weld using shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), also known as stick welding or rod welding. ****Buy this Welder on Amazon****https://amzn.to/34ozEQL****Subscribe to TimWelds****https://www.youtube.com/timwelds?sub_...****More Welding Videos****Full TIG tutorial for beginners: https://youtu.be/2od_jRAAQ6wHow to build a tungsten sharpener for $25: https://youtu.be/0kr_evSFsNAIntroduction to TIG Brazing: https://youtu.be/76CpQhRvkwwSubscribe to TimWelds: https://www.youtube.com/timwelds?sub_...****TIG Welding Gear**** (The links on this page are affiliate links that cost you no extra, but provide a small commission to support the making of these videos)My Welding Helmet: https://amzn.to/31IoPr4Less Expensive Welding Helmet: https://amzn.to/37EFC20TIG Gloves: https://amzn.to/3kvR2ZATIG Finger: https://amzn.to/3jvgJYGWelding Jacket: https://amzn.to/2J5dP0nTungsten Electrodes: https://amzn.to/2FW7DXeDiamond Grinding Wheel: https://amzn.to/31BneDeAcetone Dispenser: https://amzn.to/35vidgPArgon Flow Meter: https://amzn.to/3okZGwlFiller Metal Tube: https://amzn.to/34oTr2wSteel Filler Metal: https://amzn.to/2HqH25AAluminum Filler Metal: https://amzn.to/2Tq6hY1Stubby Gas Lens Kit (CK Worldwide): https://amzn.to/35wFNtpStubby Gas Lens Kit (Less Expensive Option): https://amzn.to/2J4HYNm
