07-14-2009, 09:19 PM
money has been tight like i know we all have seen and i wanna get me a TIG when taxes come in but i wanna see what kind of potential the 250EX has to make beautiful welds...i have seent he reviews of the machine and i'm really pysched about getting one but i want to SEE the welds...anyone got any to show off?...please post if so...hell post pics from any of their machines...

I am a new owner of the 250EX as well. I can't say how much I am in love with the machine. For the price it blows everything else out of the water. I will post up some pics in the next week of some welding I did. I can't tell you how amazing it is. I don't think you would have any regrets going with any of their new IGBT models and NO I don't work for Everlast... I'm just a pretty damn happy owner. Pics to follow shortly.

Check out here, we sell a lot of units over their. 4x4 people always fixing something they break or fabing up something.
Also, where the proper welding gear (gloves) when you weld. One guy in a TIG picture toward the end forgot his gloves, will be sore in the morning.

c'mon guys...all these welders getting bought and NO ONE has any pics of the welds?...i have enrolled in my local tech college's tig certificate class that is a one year program this upcoming quarter and hope to get me a 250EX when taxes come back...i really wanna see what kinda welds this thing makes...hell, any tig machine from Everlast would be cool with me...i just wanna see what it can do in the hands of a decent or good welder...

Did you look at the link to the 4x4 site?
There was a fellow that just received his TIG unit (towards the end of the thread) and he did some welds.
Welds are only as good as the weldor.
With all the welders we sell, I don't think (I KNOW) our customers have no plans to find this site, sign up, take pictures and post pictures of their welding.
A few come and post on the plasma products for a promotional "free consumable pack" and that does not get a lot of people to come here or our forum either.
Maybe one of the Everlast techs will do something this weekend and post it. But no promises.

Hold tight. I will be putting up some of my pics of some tig welds this weekend or early next week. Its kinda tough posting pics of my welds when there are some serious experts on here. No one likes to be criticized and I am far from laying down pretty nice tig beads but never-the-less I'll be posting some pics and my machine this weekend. I think on a forum like this (Everlast) most people are home hobbiest and weekend welders, whereas on other parts of this site people weld for a living. Its pretty intimidating posting pics of your creation knowing that your going to get chewed down. Tig is an art and either you have it or you don't.
I'll get some pics up of my crappy "attempts" if that's what you want to see.
The machine is fully capable... its just my skill level that I'm worried about.

thanks guys...criticism is what it is...either you take it and give up or take it and get better by practice and perserverence...i SUCKED at mig before i got my job doing production welding for Kubota and now i think i'm fairly good at it...not great but i can hold my own doing what i wanna do for a living...i liked the pics of the welds from the 250EX...helps me get an idea of what it can do in decent hands and i can only get better with time and my passion to weld...i love to learn and i don't give up...if i could weld like some of the guys i've seen here, i have no fear of getting my chops busted a few times to get that good!!!!...zap and some of those guys are AWESOME and i can only hope to get that good one day...

Check the link again, another person posted some pictures today.
I have a brother-in-law that works "now works part time due to the economy" in a factory in N.C. Mostly welding and he's old like me but has been a weldor all his life. If you give him (limited metal thickness of course) a 110VAC 90AMP DC MIG from HF with flux core wire, you will sit an wonder what gift he has. It is all practice. A better welder is nice and makes it easier for sure. A good weldor can weld with (almost) any welder.
No matter which unit of ours or others, it takes time. You get in a hurry you will not like the results.
Guys like ZAP take time, but with all their experience welding, they are just a lot faster, but they are still taking their time and using years of experience.

I will take some pics of aluminum and mild steel tig welds today. I have a welding company and that is what I do most of the day, oh switched from miller to everlast about a year ago and have not been dissatisfied with there customer service yet.
All the above pictures were from a project of mine. We actually had the 205, but I assume performance is similar to the 250.
I have many more examples if anybody is curious.
Heres a few from a big-rig air to air intercooler I just repaired, and a picture of the 205

here is a picture of my welding with my new everlast 200lx it packs alot of power but the air cooled torch that came with it wont hold the heat so im putting on my 25 ft water cooled wp 20 flex torch rated 225 amps on it and it should be fine39407
09-24-2009, 07:27 PM
The duty cycle of the air cooled torch is actually less than the duty cycle of the welder...The machine can be upgraded to one of our water cooled torches... Most air cooled torches duty cycles drop past 160 amps...

yeah but i need the twist coupler to go in the welder with the water line going thru it im trying to get it from mark or oleg

I've owned my 250ex for about 6 months now. Since then I have burn pounds of filler, gone through a few bottles of gas, and played around with it quite a bit. I am no expert but I've been able to lay down some nice beads and its has greatly helped me overcome the AL learning curve. When I get home I will take pictures of my practice coupons and some of the welding I've done so far. It is truly an amazing little machine.

heres a couple pics for you rookies to make yourself feal better...lol the welds look like crap but its my crap and at least Im not throwing it!http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af238/smackdaddy174/Picture078.jpghttp://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af238/smackdaddy174/Picture096.jpg

Smackdaddy, I've not looked at the pictures yet. So the welds might be pretty good.
But, depending on what you are doing, looking like crap is not always a bad thing. As long as it holds up and you do not end up broken down somewhere. Helps if no one can see it too.
10-16-2009, 04:45 PM
I was unable to see the weld (page not found). Some girls came up and my wife came in the room and gave me a look.

10-26-2009, 04:12 PM
Now I can see them. Nice.
11-18-2009, 01:46 PM
oops forgot about this site till today flipping through the channels, but thanks. I try too defend you guys on every website I go...ugggg but its worth it when a non known welder goes up against the big guys and tries to make a change in how customer service is supposed to be done!! For all the rest of you non believers just take a chill pill and sleep with your red and blues!! I have before and I was disappointed!

playing around when i actually could afford gas for it.
only have TIG'd maybe twice in my life, so the quality of the welds is on my.. not the machine. felt like the synchowave 350 i used a few times imho

there are a bunch of pics in this custom 350Z turbo setup. The OP to the thread shows that he just bought a 200LX AC/DC Tig. http://my350z.com/forum/forced-induction/462634-new-winter-new-turbo-build.html
