Another Budget Welder the Ansen 205S Stick and TIG Welder. This is a great affordable DC Stick and TIG welder packed with features. Today we are going to do some stick welding / arc welding and find out if the Ansen 205S is able to run a 6010 electrode.

I just got a DC Stick and High Frequency Tig welder with pulse. It Hot Start capability with the 7018 makes starting a 7018 easy. You may want to try it. It is a HitBox Tig 200P. It pulse capabilities are a Hz of from 1 to 10 per second. It also allows the setting of the percent of a cycle the high current is lit. Watching your reviews of inexpensive welders make me willing to try it. It cost was $269.00 on Amazon. For some reason Ebay has it at higher prices. Weird.

+Brandon Lund I have put up a poor excuse for a youtube video about stick welding on the HitBox TIG 200P. Its url is https://youtu.be/sgYdpooR6-c
Robert Law (22 days ago)
I'll try to make a video of me using it this weekend. Maybe I'll be able to shot through a helmet and show the welding. Doing this is all new to me.
Brandon Lund (22 days ago)
Thanks man, I will have to look into that! I am always looking for quality budget welders to review. Hot start is pretty nice with 7018 huh!

It the sub transmission cover has a hole in the bottom and the oil leaks out
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
I would try tig brazing with nickel rod if you have the equipment.
Ronald Parady (1 month ago)
And I know it is irrelevant to ur video but I have a cast piece off a 3 wheeler what would u recommend I used quick steel but not sure if it will stand up to the oil
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Ronald, a lot of the parts on 3 wheelers are cast aluminum. What part are your trying to fix...I have a 4 wheeler that I'm going to be doing a rebuild series on in the next few weeks.

How much is a bottle of gas for tig welding
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
I think I pay around $85 for a 150 Cu.Ft bottle of Argon.

How well did the grass re-seeding go after you got all the brush and stuff removed with this tractor rake?
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Cold weather came in too soon and I never got to seed it. I'll have to do it again in the spring.

Fun ,fun and more fun welding,wheeles and dead stops .
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Fun for all! Thanks buddy!

I could swear I've seen half this vid before? Didn't you show this tiller/rake thing, already? I dig the new info on the cheap welder and the 6010 vs 6011 stuff, though. And to be honest, I give the thumbs up just for the big stupid grin.
D Rickard (1 month ago)
That's the welder I ended up getting. It welds ok but it leaks argon like a sieve. Every connection`from the regulator to the solenoid was a bad fit up. I've been able to fix most of them but there's no easy way to get to the last one. Even so it still makes a great light weight stick welder.
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
+D Rickard I have to give you a huge thank you for bringing this problem to my attention. In fact you probably helped other viewers also. I cracked mine open tonight and every connection was leaking like you said. I did a video on how i went about fixing it and i credited you for noticing the problem. I'm sorry you had the leaks but I'm glad you got them fixed. That video will be out the first Friday in December. Thanks again buddy.
D Rickard (1 month ago)
Quick check for leaks is watching the gauge when you turn the gas off... They should hold steady if they start dropping off there's a leak somewhere.
D Rickard (1 month ago)
+Brandon Lundit's not really complicated inside...a whole lot simpler than I expected anyway. The cover comes off without having to disconnect anything. You have a good amount of room on the right and torch solenoid is right there. On mine they used push lock connections between the screw fittings. It was leaking pretty bad to around there so fixed it but the gas was still leaking down pretty fast. The connection I couldn't get to was down where it connects to outside source. When I get a chance I'm going to replace all the connections... At least up to the solenoid. The seller told me I could send it back but for what little I paid for it and for what it would cost to ship I figure I could take my chances.
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Sorry to hear than man. I own a couple of these units and zero issues so far. Maybe I'll pop the cover off and check my connections to see what it looks like.

Hit all of them with a wire brush and put little gussets on the backs of the tines. It'll help the brace take the force of anything you hook on, and keep the tines from bending so much.
CavemanJoe (1 month ago)
+Brandon Lund No problem. And I actually should've said to put the gussets on the *fronts* of the tines. Putting them on the back might allow them to buckle; on the front, they'll have an easier time dealing with the stretching forces of being pulled through the dirt instead of the compressing forces of being on the back. Mixed it up a little looking at the video at first. Seeing my comment again made me realize my mistake. Oh, and I might just get a little gas valve tig torch for my Amico stick machine just to see how it does on scratch-start TIG. I don't think it's set up for it, but it'll be fun.

Looks like I know what I will adding to it this summer! Thanks man! Great idea!

Need high open circuit voltage for 6010 rods. Need like 70 ocv for 6010 rods. Most machine top out at 30-40 volts.
Mildy Productive (1 month ago)
My bottom dollar IGBT says 25 OCP in the manual, but I measure 69V. 6011 is great; never tried a 6010, figuring it might not work. Now I want to give it a try.
Dennis Keck (1 month ago)
Yep, Dick is right, most inverter machines will not run a 6010 Not even the Alpha Tig 200. Some high end machines Everlast 255 EXT for instance has a dedicated 6010 setting. Forget 6010 on this Anson machine , 6011 will do what you want.
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Thanks for the info. I will have to see what this welders ocv colts are compared to some of my others.
Nice vid 👌👌👌
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Thanks buddy!
jakeodom1313 (1 month ago)
Thanks for the vid, would like to see a more in depth review of its tig capabilities
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
I will see what I can do. Thanks for watching!
