Ramsond CY518 TIG, Stick, Plasma Cutter

by Mike G

I purchased one of these "Made in China" (28 POUND) welders from Ebay when I could not find a used unit I could afford. I have used it successfully to weld test coupons for 3/8 to 1 inch in all positions using 1/8 6010 and 7018 with no problems what so ever, they have passed destructive testing for certification. I have cut 1/8 3/16 and 1/4 steel easily once I fixed a small air leak in the machine (missing airline clamp) The machine severed 3/4 inch as per specs, but it was not smooth as I would like but it did it. As for TIG it also worked as well. I only found one problem and that was easily fixed with a hose clamp and some time. I use this unit for the home shop I also have a Miller Mig and a Miller Thunderbolt. In the family there is a Big 40D and a Bobcat 225 gas unit.
