    Good for you. I have a business and a UPS account but UPS won't deliver to me on Saturday, because my address is listed as residential.

    Re: AHP Owners/Users Thread. No Trolling unless you have used/own one!

    Does anybody know what spool gun will work with the AlphaMig 250? I own one of those apparently elusive beasts and we need one for a project.

    Also, I seem to have a broken voltage display on my AlphaTig 200X. I sent an RMA repair request to AHP a month ago (bought it direct from them on Amazon) and still have not heard word one back.
    Welder still welds, but no clue how much voltage.

    Call the tech support phone number. This spoolgun should work as the rights to the AHP250 were transferred to Eastwood. https://www.eastwood.com/mig-spool-g...connector.html

    I have a 2017 AHP Alphatig 200x

    This has happened once before, but it fixed itself.

    I did some stick welding and put everything back to TIG. I put the switch to TIG mode, pedal on negative, torch on positive and on DC.

    When I turn on the unit, it shows on the LCD display the amps from when I was using the stick. It should be 000 until I press on the pedal. I tried turning on and off and still the same. I tried tig welding and it melted the tungsten tip almost instantly.

    Re: AHP Owners/Users Thread. No Trolling unless you have used/own one!

    Ah, yeah, that was my mistake. It's still showing the max amps, though. But I can live with that.It's not like I'm looking at the LCD display while I'm welding anyway.

    Re: AHP Owners/Users Thread. No Trolling unless you have used/own one!

    Well... 0
    Been looking at buying my own TIG for use at home and to fix the aluminum prop that always seems to find that odd rock when loading up on the trailer.
    Took me 4 days to read through all this and WOW this thread is a wealth of info

    What I took away from it all is that the pedal compared to the rest of the units on the market is a funny one and not the best.
    What I don't see is anyone trying to retrofit a Lincoln K870 pedal ( which is a 10K pot as well ) which can be most likely easily made to work by robbing the connector from the factory pedal or create a cheater cable ( use the AHP cable on 1 end and the lincoln connector on the other end ) allowing the lincoln pedal to be pretty much plug and play. Not to mention the pedal is readily available ( new as well as refurbished ) and has support from all major welding supply stores.

    I've already ordered a bunch of consumables off amazon ( Kit 1, Kit 2, Kit 3 and Kit 4). I already have a 1/8 and 3/32 2% Thoriated Electrodes which for aluminum and stainless is all that I need really...

    I also purchased a torch from CK (CK225) and will be working on making my own watercooler for it as i have an older tool box that i will be converting into my welding cart / station. Plan is to put the welder off the narrow side and pull the drawers and make a trim piece / pedestral to cover up the hole. On the side I'm planing to cut the panel out and use a furnace filter to allow the flow of fresh air in without the dust and rest of the fun stuff of a small garage. This is also where i will be hidding the large puller fan ( 14" or 16" ) that will be forcing positive cool air through out the whole "enclosure" supplying filtered air to both the welder and the heat exhanger. There is about 4" of space between the closed drawers at the back and is a perfect place to hide the heat exchanger for the torch. By loosing the large drawer down bottom I can easily fit a pump and a reservoir in place of it. The radiator I haven't decided yet what I'm going to use, but its either going to be a A/C Condenser or Transmission cooler as they have plenty of flow and they are readily available for cheap in most wreckers and already set up for a even flow pattern.
    The real reason for going to the watercooled torch is the smaller size makes it easy to get into tight spots like fabricating headers / manifolds.

    Now if only Amazon can hurry their *** up and deliver that welder so i can start making some sparks

    I'm still here, been busy with life. Finished school and busy with lots of training in my new job so I have not been actively selling recently. .

    Re: AHP Owners/Users Thread. No Trolling unless you have used/own one!

    I pulled the trigger and bought the AHP AlphaTig 201DX from their website.
    I didn't get it yet but was wondering what type of tungsten, cup and rods should i order for 19 gauge sheet metal work on a car. That will be my first project with a Tig.
    I know it depends on experience and feel but i want to be in the right ballpark.
    Does it come with what i will need minus the tungsten?
    Thanks

    So what the new AHP AlphaTig 201DX. Tried to find out something about it and can't find anything other then this-- (programmable features such as pre and post flow control, start and end cycle amps and up and down amp slope) haven't seen or can't find pictures of the new unit.

    Re: AHP Owners/Users Thread. No Trolling unless you have used/own one!

    Hello folks I am brand new here,
    I think I’ve done enough searching to choose a 200x, I’m asking about the buying options.
    From what I’ve seen the choices are:
    AHP website which now shows a 201x at about $720 + ship, Amazon has the 200x around $760 delivered,
    Home Depot web deal around $800 to your store or door, and one or more members here who sometimes sell them.

    So, not knowing what a 201x is like, or knowing ww sellers prices, HD has an extended warranty option, I don’t know what that’s actually worth down the road though. That could be a plus.

    Any options I’m missing or advice on the ones I know of?

    Regards,
    John

    When will you have them in stock? I need a machine. My Everlast 200LX circa 2009 just quit.

    not to detract business from SP - but you have options out there for buying if you are without now - my neighbor just bought the new Alpha 200 TIG - order to arrival was within 2 weeks....believe it was off Amazon

    As for the 201DX directly from AHP's website, it says preorder until Oct 8th. Finally in possition to purchase, and the AHP is still looking good price point wise. Everlast's comparable is twice as much, but 5 year warranty. The Vulcan 200 at HFT jumped up to $1000 last month.

    Ease of warranty is the biggest selling point for me. Purchasing from SouthPaw over Amazon makes the warranty process easier if needed.
