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

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. 

The Mighty Deal is Back On!

Weldready is proud to offer the best possible value on the best multi-process welder. While supplies last, we will be giving away a free spool gun for aluminum MIG, a pyrex cup set up for your TIG torch, and a fresh pair of our premium MIG/TIG gloves. To put some icing on the cake, ESAB is offering a $390 manufacturers rebate from Now until March 31, 2024. Use offer code EW4-CWD when processing the rebate. If you have been thinking about getting the dream machine, there will not be a better time!

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 DC TIG Welding with pulse for your buddies project that appears to be made of pop cans? 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.

Totally satisfied

ESAB 205i ac/dc. Recieved order in a timely manner. Was as described along with the promotional items. I called in to weld ready with a question and Kevin was very helpful with my concerns which turned out to be a. Issue with how I interpreted the instructions. Will not hesitate to buy from Weldready again.

More than satisfied customer

I purchased an ESAB Rebel EMP 205ic with the Mighty Deal 4.0 package from Weld Ready following a conversation with Kevin who answered all of my questions and provided a recommendation on the equipment I would need for my application. Weld Ready provided excellent pricing and shipped the products promptly. I recommend Weld Ready as an honest, knowledgeable, and customer focused supplier for your welding needs.

ESAB rebel ac/dc

Great service, great price, great shipping time! Couldn’t be happier!

Jon schillinger
Esab rebel ac/dc

I’m really happy with it so far, other than the tig torch, it needs a foot pedal and I never sit down to weld. I’m ordering a thumb remote to use instead and that’s the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars. When I started my career as a welder 32 years ago, this machine would have been 3 big machines and very expensive. Pretty incredible.

Awesome welder

After much research and discussions with other people we selected the esab rebel for its power, options and compact size. Very happy with it. I also can’t say enough for the service and follow up from Weld Ready. Kevin and his team are the best.
