Chinese 240V TIG welders

Postby kiwi2wheels » Mon Oct 09, 2017 4:44 pm

A question for our Australian members. A friend in QL is considering one of these two machines. Application would be for motorcycle parts and repairs. The idea is to eventually set it up with a cooler unit and a 20 series torch.

We've browsed the internet to see if these are a "known" Chinese brand, but no results. If anyone has used one, knows someone who has one or can add some comments regarding these machines , it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Here's a thread on the Renegade.

Uni Mig has a 20% duty cycle at 185A, not sure what you plan to do with it, but that's pretty low. Couldn't find any specs on Renegade.

JASIC welders should be available near you right?

They have a good reputation. I don't own one, but people I trust own them and sell them.

Edit: I forgot uni-mig is made by JASIC....

Hiya Kiwi.

I've been using the Metalmaster 215 Elite from Tokentools for a couple years now. Can't fault the machine or the seller - always ready with backup regardless of when I call.

I've welded thin steel tube, thick plate (when making a bender) as well as thin aluminium, stainless...all sorts. I've had very good success repairing aluminium and cast aluminium motorcycle parts - rearsets, broken cast aluminium frame lugs and even cast aluminium subframes.

The 'Tig for dummies' is great to get started but I quickly jumped in and started experimenting with frequency settings, pulse, everything. Has been an easy machine to learn on and I don't feel I'll outgrow it any time soon.

One tiny note - the standard size 26 torch supplied with the unit is too big and clumsy - request a 17 and you'll be good to go. Hope this helps.
