I'm waiting on delivery of a new PT 200DX and was wondering if the tig torch uses 17 style consumables.I have a good supply of parts and pieces for the 17 style torches.Is 3/32 and smaller tungsten going to be the suggested size for this machine?

The 17's are compatible with the 18/16 series. Shouldn't be a problem.
BTW, if you have any questions about operation, let me know. Also be sure to download the latest version of the operator's manual here: http://www.everlastgenerators.com/downloads/powertiggen2.pdf
Up to 1/8 is fine and recommended.

I got my PT 200DX yesterday but did not have much time to play around with it.I got it wired up and made sure it powered up which it did with no issues.Today I fired it up and did a little welding.It works like a charm.I got some very nice welds out of it on fairly thick metal and it had power to spare.Torch is a little heavy and takes a little getting use to but no big deal.I looked at a Miller Diversion 180 but after buying a foot pedal you would have close to $2000.00 or more in it and it had less features.I don't weld for a living I just enjoy it as a hobby and this PT200DX`is all I need and it was half the price.I know alot of people on here are die hard Miller,Lincoln,etc.fans and say we are crazy for buying these welders but I look at it as if I were going to buy a bicycle to ride around my neighborhood for a little bit of exercise, would I buy a $5000.00 carbon fiber competition bike build by Giant or a $200.00 Scwhinn that would well suit my needs for the type of riding I was doing.Enough said I'm a happy customer with what I bought.I would like to also say thanks to Oleg at Everlast.

I know that I don't own a Miller welder and never find myself on the Miller forum.But If I were interested in a Miller I would be hanging out there.So for you to be posting and hanging out here you must have some sort of interest in Everlast welders.It only makes since why else would you be here.But welcome to the forum ed mac its good to have you as a member of the Everlast community.

the 200DX is our not our best seller. Our 250EX is... no copying there. The dx is not even comparable in features to Millers, and it is coincidental to the series lettering we chose to use, which is a common type designation for product lines denoting levels of advancement or sophistication. We have no SD line like Miller. Consider Honda and Ford....No one complained that they were copying each other when they used the lx and ex designation after their car models did they? Oh..what about the designation GT? Or the term "sport"? Yes, the car industry is pathetic, but not for that reason. It seems this a post to stir the pot. You'd think if what you were saying were true, then our "dx" would be the better seller. We have had our PowerTig line out for a while and I think you are the only one ever to have an issue with it. The DX is a good unit, but does not have similar features or performance. Our dx is ONLY 35% duty cycle at 200 amps. Our 250EX is 60% duty cycle at 250 amps.
Desperate? Hardly. Should we avoid the use of the standard designation of 200, as well, since it reflects our actual amp output at full rated amps? Maybe we should call it the 2000Zmdr4032w2rnmgfqagf33q24?:laugh:
Actually, if you understood anything about SEO, you'd know that would only marginally help us with Google. Our ratings are quite high with SEO on almost all our pages, for a company our size, and its not because of the DX designation.

Lugweld,I appreciate the link for the new updated user manual which looks like it covers several Everlast models.This manual is very easy to understand and is pretty in depth as far as information on how lots of the functions of these welders work.It will help many users unfamiliar with alot of these functions get started.
