ESAB REBEL EMP 205IC AC/DC All In One Welder

Note From the President: This is the Canadian hobby welder or small shops dream come true. If you want one compact portable machine to cover every single weld process your metal heart will ever desire, look no further because this bad boy does it all. If someone forced me to get rid of all of my machines and choose just one machine, this would be it. 

Does the ESAB Rebel 205 TIG Weld aluminum?: Yes it does everything. EVERYTHING. It is a gas MIG welder. It is a gasless MIG welder. It is an AC/DC TIG Welder. It is a Stick Welder. It is ready for anything. Need to run a 6010 electrode on a household 120V outlet? Sure why not. Low amperage AC TIG Welding with pulse for your buddies project that appears to be made of aluminum foil? Absolutely. Flux cored welding in the middle of nowhere on a 100' long extension cord plugged in to a generator? Yup... Did we mention that this machine does everything yet? Single process machines are a thing of the past.

Okay we get it, it does everything, but is it actually good at anything?: The ESAB rebel 205 does not compromise on any function, and offers best in class performance on all welding processes. Whether you've been welding for 2 years or 20, you will love this machine.

  • For MIG welding: The ESAB Rebel 205 has rookie mode, that will make your life infinitely easier if you haven't memorized a welding textbook. Simply select the welding process, select the material, select your wire thickness, choose the type of weld (fillet, butt etc.), and the machine will apply the textbook perfect settings for you. For veterans, the machine also has ESAB patented smart MIG (sMIG) technology with built in arc control. You control all parameters manually, and the machine will constantly monitor the weld, and instantaneously adapt for superior repeatable welds that will blow your mind.
  • For TIG welding: The ESAB Rebel 205 has high frequency start, frequency adjustment from 25 to 400 Hz, pulse from 1-5000 PPS, AC wave balance from 60-90A%, and amplitude offset. This really is the next level in TIG adjustment. You get the maximum level of arc control for unmatched performance.
  • For Stick Welding: Massive capacitors allow for easy arc start even when limited to a household outlet on a cold day.

Rebel 205ic Ac/dc
I bought the Rebel 205ic AC/DC from Kevin at weldready. It's a great machine, I'm very happy with it. Excellent service from Weldready, helpful to get the rebate as I wasn’t sure if it would work at some point. Got my machine to my front door within a week. I Strongly recommend them for any welding supply needs. I will go back and purchase more consumables from them for sure.
