    Could you post up the specs from the owner's manual? The manual isn't downloadable yet. I am dying to see the duty cycles, pre and post flow times, the pulse ranges, etc. Thanks.

    Funny, I called a HF store in Wa last week and they could not find the 205 in any store or in the warehouse.

    sure would like to see the rest of the specs when you have a minute. balance range, pulse range, other pulse settings in general, etc. etc.

    would it not be easier and less confusing to not reply with the original picture that somebody posted. Did u not learn how to do it after lurking here for so long?

    Hey Buba,

    FYI, someone asked him for that information, it was not posted and quoted.

    Keep asking this question.
    These are not in stock in my state. Nobody has them, not even in warehouse.
    I am assuming they were made or components were made in Wuhan.

    I decided to go ahead and order one online last week, shipped Friday, its going to be here tomorrow, Ill let yall know how it compares to other tig welders Ive used before, although, that is only a Miller Shopmate 300 at school, and a Lincoln aspect 375 at school. By the way, it only costed my 6.99 to ship it from Dillon, sc to georgia.

    I ran it today, ac felt great, the ac noise is louder than the Lincoln aspect at school though. Fan is on demand only. My regulator came leaking out of one of the connections. One big thing I noticed is it does not have a lift arc function. Another thing I noticed is he foot pedal feels like it has steps in it, not truly linear. Dc felt great too, welded fine, nothing massive jumped out at me. Ill update tomorrow, I'm building a welding table with it tomorrow, get a few hours on it and Ill let yall know how it goes.

    Well I guess they did not fix the steppy pedal. Not a big deal if you don't pump the pedal much, but it is noticeable if you do.

    That sucks for me, I paid full price for mine. I really like it, and the adjustments have quite a large range. I havent really took it past 130 amps yet, but it feels pretty dang good. Once I get the cart finished, I will make a review on the welder. If you have any questions let me know.

    And just to update today, I was running it and hf start died. Don't know if there could be some magic setting I don't know about though. Lift arc still works with the foot pedal though.

    Check your preflow timer. It might be too high.

    Clean your tungsten, and when sharp scratch the point on the table before starting an arc. See if it starts.

    Ground clamp making connection?
