Sedanman,
I guess you pay an extra $400 for the CK wrapping? Good to know!

I guess you could always buy an Everlast, I saw the 250 EX recently on the market for around $1395. Weld 1/4 inch no issues.

Don't forget the CK Worldwide MT-200 ac/dc Tig, it is pricier at $2155 but is supposed to be an excellent machine.

Wow that's quite a bit more then the Lincoln, it better shine for that cost. Have never seen any reviews for that unit, but then I haven't went looking.

Right now you can but the SW TIG 200 and get a $125 rebate as well. Plenty of good reviews of this machine out there



The CK Worldwide machine is a Razorweld 200 acdc in a different case. The Razorweld can be had for $1,700 and is awesome at that price point.


CK Worldwide are awesome products with great customer service!!

The bigger case allows for slightly better cooling thus a duty cycle improvement. The CK version also comes with a CK torch.
