Re: Precision Tig 225 vs. Invertec V205-T
I called Thermal Arc to find out what the practical differences between the 185 and the 200 were. I thought you might be interested in the answer:
The 200 is designed to work with 3 phase power, but if you (like me) don't even have access to 3 phase power, there is virtually no difference. The 15A output "difference" is virtually nil on 220 single phase. There's basically no practical difference between these two machines for those of us using only single phase! You can save $415 by buying the 185 with no practical loss in performance. Mine is due to arrive today!!!
Oh, you can also save a few bucks by buying from IOC direct on their web site rather than through eBay. I think it's about $7.
