    Lincoln 185 tig problems

    Has anyone had problems with these units? I keep burning up red tip tungsten
    unit goes into protection after 10 15 min of solid welding, and welds look like shit.

    I weld aluminum and steel


    Im by no meens a pro but had a Miller 180sd tig before and welded like a champ.

    any ideas
    Thanks

    I have one and it works great.

    I assume you have a problem with consumables quality or technique.

    That's where I'd look first. In any case there is no intrinsic problem that I know about.

    Sounds like you might have the ground and work leads mixed up.
