Precision TiG Electric Welder 255 Lincoln

Precision TiG Electric Welder 255 Lincoln

Product Description and Features

This machine is truly made for you This is the reason that the different parameters of this machine can be adjusted as per the requirement of the user. Amperage played a very important role in the welding of metals. 

If the metal is thick you need a high amperage rate. If you have thin metals then the high amperage output will definitely destroy the metal. The adjustment of the output amperage as per the metal will definitely help you to attain the best welding for the said metal. 

As far as the duty cycle is concerned. No comparison with this welder is available in the market. This can be a possibility to be best as this welder is. But none of this is better than this as this is the welder which provides the best available duty cycle time. The duty cycle time this particular welder offers is 100%.

TiG as a Welding Technique

Multiple welding techniques are available. One of these techniques is the TiG welding technique. TiG is the abbreviation for the TUNGSTEN INERT GAS welding. Before we understand why we have given importance to this specific welding technique. This is important to understand the mechanism of the working of this welding technique.

Tig Welding Technique – The Mechanism

Like all other welding techniques, this is done at a high temperature. The electrode used in this welding technique has the capacity to maintain its shape and composition even at a very high temperature. The electrode will completely transfer the current to the base metal. This makes the base metal melt at a high temperature. 

The high temperature starts to melt the metals. As the metal starts to melt. This is the time to create a joint between both of the metals. The joint will be made and the filer is used to fill the gap between both metals. In order to create a joint between both. Metals.

This welding technique needs more professional skills than any other welding technique. 

This technique requires both the hands with complete concentration.

The Competitive edges of the Tig welding Technique

The Tig welding technique has multiple benefits. These benefits make it the first choice for the welders to learn.


This welding technique is known for the maximum accuracy and detail. The non-consumable property of the electrode is a blessing for the welders. This makes the welder’s job accurate if not easy.

High Priced

The Tig welding units are actually high priced in comparison to the other. This may not be as economical as the welding machines to be used at the home. On the other hand, no doubt this is the best welding technique available. 

Other than this the Tig welding technique has two more drawbacks. I wonder if you really think those are drawbacks. One is the strength of the joints. The joints are too strong to break. If you ever change your mind or you made a wrong welding joint. You will not be able to break this joint.

Secondly, You have to use both of your hands while welding. This is a bit hectic. As it involves both of your hands. The work definitely increases and you will be completely indulged with the welding task.

How do we select theses Domestic Tig welder

A question can be carried in the mind of our customers. What are the reasons behind the selection of these particular stick welders? Actually this is a quite logical question and this should be answered properly in detain and with logical reasons. 

Be aware that all of these points are derived by our experts based on the effort of months. We combine the wisdom of the many expert welders around the globe and have finally reached this conclusion. 

Let’s discuss the points of the selection criteria one by one.

The Working Parameters

Available space and the place where you need to do the welding are the first criteria. If you buy a big machine and you don’t have the proper space to store it. This will be a permanent mess for you and you will not be able to handle the machine on a permanent basis. This will only be a mess for you. Something that will become an obligation other than the utility. 

This is important to match the dimensions of the machine with the parameters of the machine.

The Electricity Supply

The second parameter is the electricity supply. The welding units need electricity to work. Without electricity, the welding units cannot operate. This is as the automobile requires the fuel to run. But this is not as simple as to put petrol in the automobile. In the case of getting petrol for the automobile, you can easily take the fuel from one place and use it while moving around. In the case of the welding unit, things are entirely different. You do not store the electric supply in the welding unit. What you need to do is continuous and at the spot supply of the electricity.

Every welding unit has a different power supply requirement. There is not a single power supply criteria available. 

This is important to consider the domestic power supply availability before buying any welding machine. We have put the utmost importance on this criteria.

Metals to work on

Not all metals can be weld in the same way. The reason is that all the metals have different criteria to work with. The composition of every metal is different from each other. As the composition is different so the temperature required to melt the metal will be different too. Secondly, the thickness of every metal object will be different from each other. 

This difference in the thickness will change the requirement of the temperature for the metal of weld. If you are working on the light metals. Moreover, the thickness of the metal is also of a moderate level. Things will definitely be on the lighter side. If things will be like this there is no need to spend the extra money to buy the welding units. That can weld the heavy metals as the heavy welding metal is never your choice to be done.

Gas Control

This is another parameter. The control of this parameter is necessary for the excellent finishing of the welding task. The gas control at the time of welding the metal is truly helpful in achieving the best welding results. 

Two different things are used to control the flow of gas while welding. The first is the nob. With the help of the gas knob placed on the welding machine. You can easily adjust the gas flow of the welding unit. The foot pedal is a device that has an excellent feature to control the flow of the gas even at the run time. 

The run time ability to control the flow of the gas enables the user to control the amperage of the gas unit without stopping the welding operation This runtime parameter helps to achieve excellence during the welding task.

A problem may arise while with the continuous work on the pedal. The possibility is that your foot may start to feel the strain. Some users have developed the pain because of this.

Cooling mechanism

The welding is a high-temperature task. This needs to be done with extreme care. The welders continuously try to manage the temperature of the welding unit. This is the reason that many of the welding units are equipped with a cooling unit. 

The duty cycle is actually for the same purpose. The duty cycle is the measure of time in the slot of the ten minutes for which a welding machine can weld continuously. Like the 60% duty cycle means that you can continuously work for the 6 minutes. After that, the machine has to rest for at least four minutes. After 4 minutes the machine is again cooled down and ready to move with the next job. 

Depending on the intensity and the amount of the heat. These cooling units are very esse]y to operate. The only problem with these is that you need to buy theses separately.


The mobility of the machine is an important issue to consider. Especially when you are considering the welding units for the home. The weight and the dimensions of the machine are two important points to consider whenever purchasing the machine. It should be easy to carry so that it can be moved around.

Secondly, the storage of the machine should be easy. This can be evaluated by evaluating the design dimensions of the machine.


Be informed and do read our articles regularly if you are really passionate about the art of the welding. This is always important to remain updated as the art of welding is continuously evolving. By progressing in the right direction you are on the right track to get maximum from your welding machine. 

Secondly by keeping in touch with the current development of the art of the welding. You are in the best position to remain safe during the welding process. This is a dangerous task and requires complete care and the updated knowledge to remain safe during the welding process
