Product Overview

The EZ-TIG 165i is a complete 230V AC/DC welding package that offers a unique single knob control making it the quickest and easiest AC/DC TIG welder to set up and use. Just plug it into 230 VAC, connect the gas, select the material and thickness, and you are ready to weld. It has superior weld performance from 22 gauge to 3/16 in. (.81 mm to 4.8 mm) in both AC (aluminum) and DC (steel/stainless steel/chromoly). The EZ-TIG 165i is a light weight inverter-based design that includes a foot control.


Refurbished units are clean condition and most look brand new, but some may have some minor dings. Most are unused returns that have never been fired up except during testing. If there has been prior use, it is very minimal. Our welders are manufacturer refurbished by Hobart. All units are fully tested for performance and guaranteed to work like new. They come with a one year manufacturer's warranty.

Hobart EZ Tig

I purchased this welder from Factory Pure as a refurbished product and when it arrived it looked like new and everything worked perfect

Robert Hand

Packaging was in great condition upon arrival. Have not tried unit as I have not gotten back home as of review.


Was hesitant buying a refurbished unit but knowing it was refurbished by Hobart made the decision easier. Plus saved $300. Not bad. Factory Pure shipped fast and great communication. Got the Tig in great condition with all accessories as you would if new. Spent 5hrs tig welding steel and aluminum and this machine performed awesome. I would recommend the Hobart EZ Tig 165i to anyone welding 3/16 or less aluminum or steel.
