Dude, when you strapped on the "dustpan" style welding helmet with an F'ing Bungee cord I spit my morning coffee all over my computer. Good work sir! Made me laugh a lot. Great review by the way.
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
John Harper Thanks man! I knew that face shield was good for something!

What does the 2 T and 4T stand for
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
2T is when you press the trigger and hold it, the arc initiates. When you let off, it goes out. 4T you press the trigger and let off and the arc stays lit. Hit it again and it goes out. 4T is like cruise control on your car. I personally never use 4T.

Why does the stick welding keeps on stopping?
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
No clue. Maybe this was the first time welding with it. When?
ETM (1 month ago)
So long term update Is it still working for you want to get in to Tig, so it came with a ragulater
ETM (1 month ago)
+Brandon Lund thanks will need to look more into it
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
@ETM this is a great machine and it includes the regulator. I use it exclusively for TIG over all my other machines. It also has a gas solenoid so your not messing around with a valve on the torch. The one downfall I discovered in mine was that the Argon fittings inside the unit were leaking. I've also been told that most all of the imported welders have this problem to some degree. If your a handy person, it was a very easy fix but it is something that should be checked into since gas is not cheap. Here is a video on how I fixed mine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWAyqZWMyD0

So what was the brand of the welder that blew up
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Tiffany, It was my very old ac/dc buzz box branded by Craftsman. Heres the link to that video https://youtu.be/vOcUBfU7TJU

The listed link to "this" welder on Amazon is not 200 amp but 160 amp and sells now for $249.49 and is listed as model TIG-165S-160. Too many product reviews on YouTube have this happen to them on Amazon. Amazon has lost me as a customer for this kind of price gouging and other dirty tricks by Amazon and their partners.
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
I don't take offense to this at all buddy. I'm no different than you guys. When I buy something, I want the biggest bang for my buck I can get. If something is garbage, I will say so. I'm glad I put 209 for the price...I doubt we will ever see that again though. I'm not sure if your aware, but right after I did this video, the price started to increase. It's highest price on amazon (that I am aware of) was $1,299.99. I really wish the people that sell these things would not do that. It makes me look bad over something I have no control over.
Jon Heckendorf (4 months ago)
Thanks Brandon for your reviews. I hope you don't think I was in anyway putting down your product reviews. I like to update information especially when I am about to spend my hard earned money. Product reviews are a wonderful extension of the Internet but Amazon partners take advantage of this situation and predictably increase their prices. Keep on reviewing products so the rest of us can learn these things without making purchasing mistakes. One helpful hint I can give is to know what the low price of the product used to be and search around for the product at or at least near the low price.
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
I have to agree as someone who is trying to show others what I think works and what it costs, then you guys go check it out and the price has been raised. Unfortunately I can not control their pricing. I appreciate you checking out my videos

The 180A version is $269.69 & FREE Shipping. ... so they price increased it by $61
Kyle's Corner (2 months ago)
Tariffs 🙄
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Unfortunately I have no control over their pricing... I wish it was still 209....even at 269 it's still a bargain as far as I'm concerned
Spartaeus (4 months ago)
It's back in stock. But they jacked the price up!
Protected Profile (2 months ago)
I don't think it's the best deal anymore, since it's now $300
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
I wish I had control over their pricing. It would be 209 - free ship for everyone!

Kind of regret buying everlast 140ST
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
+Protected Profile when I bought this it was at 209 and it was just their regular price. Looking at some of the comments it seems like the price fluctuates. I have not had any problems with this welder. I use this one mostly for tig welding and i do most all of my stick welding with my blue demon. I think the blue demon has a little better arc.
Protected Profile (4 months ago)
did you get yours on sale or something, I would like to buy for labor day?
Protected Profile (4 months ago)
several people have had their 140ST's go out on them due to heat. There is a great video on how to fix the problem if you are an electronics expert and good with a solder gun. You'll also need to add fans to prevent it from happening again.
Brandon Lund (5 months ago)
This welder is a beast for the money!
lil_welt Thomas (5 months ago)
Brandon that's messed up your fans look at your videos and I just looked at it and you can clearly tell it's the spring in the middle pushing the two plates apart
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
I have no clue what your talking about
Tom Costa (5 months ago)
I can't find it anywhere for $209 Dollars
Brandon Lund (5 months ago)
Tom Costa it looks they are currently out of the 180 amp model but I just saw they make a 205 amp model for 269! Mine hasn't blown up yet. I just wish they would stop jumping their prices all over
Amel Esho (5 months ago)
i have the same machine training to set it up but was leaking gas every where
Brandon Lund (5 months ago)
Amel Esho That’s the chance you take sometimes when you buy these bargain machines. Let me know if they went good on replacing it.
Chris Farley (6 months ago)
Great welder, altho I really want ac dc, have any opinions on a good one around the same price?
Brandon Lund (6 months ago)
You wont find an AC/DC for this price...however, I am trying to work on a deal in the near future.
OldLeatherHands&Friends (6 months ago)
Those welds looked good considering no prep was done to rusty metal.
WV591 (8 months ago)
wTH how do u get a 1299 dollar welder for little over 200 deal like that
Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
It's not a $1,200.00 welder. It's a greedy seller. See my pinned comment below.
Bimer Liu (8 months ago)
My factory had a lot of this models
Joseph G (8 months ago)
i wish that my experience with the Ansen brand was as pleasant. I bought this exact welder off amazon after watching your video review and it died within 2 days. when i opened the box...a large solder ball about lima bean size fell out of the welder before plugging it in and I should have put it back in the box after that. i only welded for about 2 minutes on some 1/8 " CR steel in tig. not happy at all with Ansen
Joseph G (8 months ago)
Brandon Lund well be careful with that thing. I took it apart to see what happened and i was astonished by the small size of the board with alot of re-used stuff it appears and poured on solder where there should have been thicker pcb anyways. The controller doesn't restrict current to the max amperage at the torch...it will apply a current increase all the way up to max output of 180 as you turn the dial and the tig circuit cant handle more than 120 by looking at the components used and the small traces. Not to mention copper wire pieces soldered everywhere that current will be too much for the pcb traces to handle. And the single pcb is cut in between circuits that are going to get hot to avoid heat travelling thru the pcb to surrounding heat sensitive components. Nothing in the case is even rated for more than 105c and this small board is going to get hot, especially in a welder with such a poor design. This definitely helped me decide that i will be getting a refund because even a new unit with no shoddy electronics would be a definate fire hazard. A good unit probably wouldn't last more than a few months if that. If i hadnt unplugged mine...it would have burnt my shop down no doubt about that. I have pics if you care to look. Be careful man
Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
Please let me know what you find out. Maybe they will refund you a bunch of extra money since they decided to hike this welders price to 1499 since I made this video!
Joseph G (8 months ago)
Brandon Lund oh yeah. Playing the waiting game on that welder but im probably going to send it back for a refund
Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
Joseph Geneloni sorry to hear of your bad experience. Have you contacted them about replacing it

On Amazon cost is $ 1,299.99 ANSEN 180AMP TIG&STICK Welder DC Inverter Welder Dual Voltage IGBT Welding -Class AAA
Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
gary carlson these guys disgust me. They should feel ashamed
Wolverine (8 months ago)
$1,299.99!!! Too bad, so sad!!! Manufacturer decided to get greedy... Guess I'll get the Amico Tig-205 instead...
CavemanJoe (2 months ago)
+Wolverine That wasn't the company, it was one guy who got one and listed it on Amazon because he was greedy as hell.
Wolverine (8 months ago)
Yes, that's now true... But when Brandon did the video, he bought it from Amazon for $209... Thus the reason I bought the Amico tig-205 from Home Depot for $279... No waiting... And it didn't go from 209 to 1299 in a short time like the Ansen did...
gary carlson (8 months ago)
On the welder and the box it shows Ansen not Amico, It costs $ 1,299.99 at Amazon.
Wolverine (8 months ago)
You're a good man, Brandon... While I'm bummed out about missing out on the chance of getting the Tig-185S, I appreciate you and your work in locating good and affordable machines... Thanks for all you do for us! I would imagine that the folks at Ansen are starting to see their mistake, but I saw what they did and won't be forgetting it anytime soon... Those blastards...
Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
Wolverine I totally agree with you. I will never buy anything from these folks again after seeing what they decided to do after getting some increased sales from me. Increasing the price from 209 to 1400 should be illegal. It was a real learning experience. As a side note, I've found a reputable supplier. Check out my Blue Demon review. You won't be disappointed and you won't have to worry about price gouging or warranty issues.
SHERMAN YOUNG (9 months ago)
Nice Welder Brandon,hey can you tell me if that 220v to 120v adapter would work with my Lincoln 180HD Welder its 220, but I wish I could run it on 110/120v outlet thanks if anyone can answer my question please let me know thanks [email protected]
Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
SHERMAN YOUNG sorry, I don't have first hand experience with that welder. I'm assuming your welder is NOT dual voltage where as it did not come with the adaptor but your best bet is to check your manual.
CavemanJoe (9 months ago)
Pretty sure you're the reason these have been out of stock.👍
Naoufel Melayh (9 months ago)
hi BRANDON,thanks for video , unfortunatly amazone does not ship to tunisia, could you please, i would like to order for it , and plasma cutting too , thanks
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
Naoufel Melayh hang tight brother, I'm working on setting up international shipping through Amazon.
Al Ander (9 months ago)
Brandon thank you for the great video. I have a A.C./DC tig/stick welder ,but thought I would get this one for my son to play with.Amazon did not have the 180 in stock so I got the 160 ($209.00 free ship). What can I say,it is a lot of welder for the money. I stick welded 3/32 7018 at about 90 amps on 220 volts and it ran fine. I tig welded on 110 and 220 and to my surprise it has high frequency start ,and is a solenoid gas delivery system. The H F was crisp and arc was smooth. Thank you for the great videos you produce always look forward to your next project. Regards Al

Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
Al Ander that's awesome! Your boy is going to love it! It's $599.00 on eBay! Just so you know, every project I have ever done on my channel could be done with the 160 with room to spare so It's a LOT of welder for money! I'm glad you guys are enjoying It!
John Harper (9 months ago)
Hey save the helmet and you can get close-ups of your welds by holding camera behind it!
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
John Harper good idea!!!! Thank you!

Why mostly in 2 t? 4t is more relaxed when you have no foot pedal.

Daniel B if you click the link in the description it will take you to the right one, but as of right now, it shows they are out of stock on the 180 amp model.

Jaques Daniels (10 months ago)
Good find, lotta features TIG wise for the money, good starter set for the home user getting into TIG. I'd advise looking out a WP9 torch, much neater n nicer to handle. Said it before, and say it again,the stuff from China is vastly improved from the first kit, and its putting tooling in a price bracket for the home user. One point for newbies- I tell folks not to use soapy water for gas connection testing, because, if you get into the habit, and one day move into Oxy fuel kit, its not a good idea to test Oxy with soapy water, so I always say buy the correct leak testing stuff. But, if you are only ever gonna use inert gases, then soapy water is ok. And you can shave with it-just sayin.
Jaques Daniels (10 months ago)
To be fair, the soapy water thing is an older no no, some soaps had fats in them, most soap solutions are probably made up with dishwashing liquid or car shampoo nowadays, so probably little risk of a "volcano" going off, that set reminds of Thermal Arc sets, which are good sets--http://www.thermalcut.com/thermal_arc_welding_machines_for_sale.html, enjoy the new toy-I mean tool.
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Jaques Daniels I tend to agree. For a while it was hit and miss and some even had used electric components. They seem to be figuring it out. I have never heard to not use soap on an oxy setup? Good to know! I knew oil was bad thing but i never heard about the soap. You may be able to shave with the soap, but this is DC only, so no Al- lou- min-e-yum welding for you 🤣🤣🤣. I'll look into that #9 torch! Hope all is well friend!
Michelangelo Lavagno (10 months ago)
i like this welding machine ... it 's in italy too
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Good to know! Thank you!
D Rickard (10 months ago)
I think it could be worth $200 just as a stick welder...and they included the conversion ext. AND a tig torch? It sounds like a win if it doesn't crap out early. I have to assume that it is DC only so no aluminum...but again it's a lot cheaper than any of the DC , stick welders I've been looking at. Good on you! Oh and my Miller mig came with one of those 'see thru' plastic hoses...LOL
McKenzie Boyz (9 months ago)
I've had my 200 for nearly four months now. Use it everyday. It's amazing
D Rickard (10 months ago)
Reality is, as you intimated, I'll likely never have use for a larger one...I'm afraid I've been left with my dad's theory of buy enough machine to do the biggest job you think you might do within the confines of your budget. At this price though you can justify getting this and still buying bigger down the road.
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Hopefully they get some more in stock soon. I'm not sure what type of projects your looking to do, but even a 160 would do every project that I would take on. Just my opinion anyways. :)
D Rickard (10 months ago)
Brandon Lund they have pretty well wiped the existence of the 180 amp from Amazon. I'm not sure how under powered I'd feel with the 160. I saw where they make a 200 and, from what I understand, some of the vendors will run them 50% off which pulls them down close to the deal you got.
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
I totally agree! My Hobart 140 came with the same clear plastic hose! You are correct, DC only so it will do just about everything except tig aluminum. Many of the cheaper inverter welders also don't come with a plug attached, let alone the power adapter, tig torch, gauge and the list goes on. So far, this is an awesome deal. I saw it listed on Ebay for $599.00
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Spoiler Alert! I have run 3 pounds of ER70s2 3/32 filler rod so far, padding beads on plate and welding various positions. This thing is a beast! I have yet to hit it's 60% duty cycle. The tig video will be out Friday March 16th at 12:00 p.m. est. You won't be disappointed!
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
+gary carlson I paid 209 free ship on Amazon for this. I am not affiliated with Ansen. It seems like their prices tend to vary
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
60% duty cycle means you can run this at its rated amperage for 6 minutes before needing to cool it down for 4 minutes. 40% duty cycle is 4 minutes on, 6 minutes off. Duty cycle uses a 10 minute reference. Cheers
dus22345 (5 months ago)
60% duty cycle? Can you elaborate on that?
bubba nader (8 months ago)
LOL, Brandon got HOOKED UP!!1 ;-)
gary carlson (8 months ago)
This did not cost $ 209.00 It is ANSEN brand that's on the box and welder & it costs $1,299.99 at Amazon.
Joe Briggs (10 months ago)
why would you not just get the lincoln 210mp
Joe Briggs (10 months ago)
Just new to welding been doing reviews and all welders and many seem to say blue or red welders the only way to go. There is a cheaper brand everlast but have been hearing a lot of bad reviews on customer service.
Joe Briggs (10 months ago)
I know $1300 but buy once buy right.
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
You do know your comparing a $1,900 welder to a $200 dollar unit right?
Welding Junkie (10 months ago)
Joe Briggs the duty cycle on the MP Lincoln is a joke that’s only problem. Those Lincoln squarewave 200 and MP are made for weekend welders. Not saying it’s not better then this because it is. This isn’t avaible right now too.
