TIG Welding RedefinedMiller's new Diversion 165 AC/DC TIG welder makes learning the process easier and more affordable for first-time TIG welders wanting to take on motorsports welding applications. This welder features just two controls?one for heat input and one for selecting metal type?and has a list price of $1,617.
The Diversion 165 can weld material as thin as 22-gauge and as thick as 3/16-in. in a single pass with its 10- to 165-amp output. To aid visual learning, every Diversion 165 box includes a 68-page TIG Welding for Dummies? book and a DVD on how to set up, operate and weld with the unit, along with some basic TIG welding tips.
The Diversion 165 weighs 50 lbs. (90 lbs. less than other units), connects to 230 V, 1-phase power using a "dryer-type" 3-pronged plug and only needs a 25-amp circuit breaker to produce its full welding output of 165 amps (150 amps at 20 percent duty cycle). The stable arc and positive arc starts help beginners achieve good results. For more information, visit www.MillerWelds.com, or call 800-426-4553.
