Tig Welding Machine


Recommended Posts

Not the token tools one however when researching for my machine I narrowed it down to the unimig machines and the cigweld. Silverwater Welding highly recommend the Unimig machine and have had very little trouble with them. I only bought the cigweld machine because of the deal I got.

I narrowed it down to the same 2 welders and went cig aswell but now looking at the water coolers wish I went uni for the only reason is $500 uni watercooler and $1500 for the cig. I'll prob end up getting the uni cooler and adapt it to the cig to save the $1000

Heya guys,

I run a UNIMIG ACDC 200 with no issues thus far.

My reason for purchasing the UNIMIG was their service and warranty versus price.

Warranty is 3yrs and their head office is in Villawood (30min from the workshop).

IMates told me of a MIG gun and TIG machine that were replaced next day under warranty (in Sydney), not bad service.

My 200 ACDC with pedal was ~$1550 from National Welding Supplies in Wetherill Park.

Mark :)

From what Unitig tell me the boards inside are slightly different, meaning you can't buy replacement boards from Unitig when it fails. How much of what they said is true I don't know, but when the board went in my Unitig they shipped down a replacement next day from Sydney. Great service.

I saw Supergas had a new Tig unit cheap, Fabgear 200 AC/DC $1299. It certainly looks the goods, no free foot pedal though, although the Cigweld $1599 unit comes with one...

I looked up the weldsmart website and found the current pictures show a different welder to that supplier, Infact they are the only supplier I can find that sells that one so seems dodgey. I think it will be worth paying the extra even if it's just warranty purposes, you wouldn't know about the boards either!
