The AHP AlphaTIG 200X has been one of the go to machines as of late for first time welders and experienced home welders on a budget. For only $800, this machine offers many of the advanced features of much more expensive machines.

There are a lot of inverter TIG welders out on the market today. Over the past few years, we have been testing as many of them as we can and giving you our feedback on what we like and don't like about each. In this episode, we got our hands on the Everlast 210 EXT TIG AC/DC TIG welder. This machine is a digitally controlled welder with a whole lot of features; some that we like and some we could do without.

In this episode (part 1) we will be going over the accessories that come with the machine; which ones we like, as well as which accessories we would replace. Before we get into the welding test, we will be showing you the front of the machine, what all the functions are and how to set them for welding Aluminum. Once the machine is all set we will be doing an edge weld and lap weld on Aluminum to test the AC functions of the machine.
