Everlast powertig 250EX
by Sam in Sheboygan
Man o man. I never thought I would become a social outcast by buying a Chinese made welder.
I thought long and hard about buying US. Own several US made welders and really like them. Tried a Chinese made (Everlast) plasma cutter and was impressed.
So I decided to buy an Everlast Powertig 250EX. Needed a more portable and less expensive tig machine than what is being offered by the US companies. I just did not want to spend the cash as times are tough. Jobs are not as abundant as in the past and so I needed to make a choice. Spending less for something that does as good of a job is GREAT for me.
Got my green machine and a few former friends are no longer talking to me as they ran out the door yelling about being a traitor and anti American. Told them to not let the door hit them in the ass. I should have bought this years ago as they were a PITA anyways! I now can get more done because they are not around BSing me to death with their welding stories and how they could have should have would have.
Seems that there are some folks who are chinkaphobic.
OMG, in the middle of Miller Town, you bought a green machine.
Seriously, I have 2 of them and have had one or two issues, but am relatively happy with mine.
I dont endorse them because I dont have any control over their quality or service.
bottom line is Its an option for someone who doesnt want to sell a kidney to get a welder.
