The EZ-TIG 165i is a complete 230V AC/DC welding package that offers a unique single knob control making it the quickest and easiest AC/DC TIG welder to set up and use. Just plug it into 230 VAC, connect the gas, select the material and thickness, and you are ready to weld. It has superior weld performance from 22 gauge to 3/16 in. (.81 mm to 4.8 mm) in both AC (aluminum) and DC (steel/stainless steel/chromoly). The EZ-TIG 165i is a light weight inverter-based design that includes a foot control.

Comes complete with:
  • Inverter based power source with primary cord and plug attached
  • Weldcraft A-150 (WP-17) 12.5-ft. (3.8 m) TIG torch
  • Foot-operated control using the RFCS-RJ45 Remote Foot Control
  • 12 ft. (3.7 m) work cable with clamp
  • Gas regulator, flowmeter and shielding gas hose

  • EZ to use interface with one knob and one switch control
  • AC output for superior aluminum welding, DC output for mild and stainless steel
  • Fan-On-Demand to only have the fan run when needed reducing dust/debris being pulled into the unit
  • Infinite amperage control for broader operating range with finer control
  • Inverter-based power source provides a more consistent welding arc while using less power
  • Weighs only 50 lb. (23 kg) so it's EZ to take anywhere
  • HF start to allow for a non-contact arc start to eliminate tungsten and material contamination
  • Auto-postflow to provide optimum shielding based on welding amperage without waste or need for adjustment
  • Automatic high temperature shutdown
