If you’ve ever watched the hardcore guys weld on aluminum, stainless, or chromoly, they’re often holding a TIG torch in their hands. TIG rigs can be a little frightening at first but are super-handy for automotive fabrication work. With the new Diversion 165 TIG welder Miller has attempted to simplify the correct TIG unit setup and provide you some power as well.

The 165 features a 20-percent duty cycle (which means it can weld for two minutes out of ten before it has to rest) and a new dirt-simple operator interface. Now you can work the machine with only three switches: a power switch, a material selection switch, and an amperage control/material selection switch. Select your stock and the amps (there’s a 10 – 165A range), then kick it on and go — not too scary at all.

The sticker shock might scare a few folks, though. This machine can add a lot of power to your shop, but the 165 lives north of $1,200 for the base unit, and accessories’ll cost you a bit more after that.

    We are big fans of our Miller Trailblazer rig – which I can recommend wholeheartedly – but you’ll have to spend a lot more than $1200

    from the street pricing page looks like you’ll spend 1300/1400 bucks. from the miller page it looks like you get everything you need except the bottle for your sheilding gas. it does AC and DC also

    At the same price as a comparable mig machine it is definitely a good deal.

  4. Eric Hart says:

    TIGs are great for steel too, especially with tiny pieces that could easily get deformed under a MIG. If it weren’t for the price, I would say a TIG was much more suited for the hobbyist’s shop where there’s only occasional welding on small projects.

    I agree that the tig is perfect for the small handyman guy who is always working on smaller projects. And regardless, the way this economy is going you can really pick up some great bargains on any welder right now.
