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.
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.
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.
@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.
@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.
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.
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.
