My opinion worth what you pay for it
(Fort Worth tx)
Finally some one intelligent and making common sense. Let me add to what you are saying with my opinion. As a small business owner I am always looking at the bottom line and also the demands of my business. Let me elaborate: I just purchased a small chinese brand arc/tig and yes I was and am looking for ways to adapt it to doing some aluminum. Let me duck while all the hard nosed Lincoln/miller people throw all their rocks at me. Esab too. My Lincoln and yes lincoln ac/dc does and will weld aluminum using dcep and 4043 sticks. I purchased the Chinese brand tig for a couple of reasons. The first was to learn tig without destroying and expensive machine and second (the big one) price. That's right, price. I refuse to drop a thousand bucks on a machine that I am not sure how much demand there will be for it in my particular business. If and when it proves to be a valuable asset and addition to my business I will then buy a more professional line for the work at hand but not until. It really blows my mind when I read about some bonehead goes and buys a dirt cheap tool. Uses it a few times, then subjects the tool to a duty cycle for which it was never intended. The same said person rips said tool apart all over the web and reviews it as a terrible piece of junk. Myself I know it's a light duty machine I am just "feeling out" the market place and demand for this service within my particular business. My view of the little CE mig stick welder? So far it runs a beautiful line and hopefully I will figure out a way to get it to run some aluminum. If it proves profitable I will buy a good machine. Otherwise if there is no or low demand I am only out 200 bucks.
