Which Welder

Recommended Posts

My thru penny in this ( got all the sets )

Oxy gas- versatile an portable, use mine fr seized bolts n brazing

Mig 120 amp- sheet metal, Landrovers n fabrication

Inverter Arc- sheet metal and cast ( best welder to start with and usually can convert it to a Mig )

( I weld up pre-heated cast with  nickel / bronze repair rods )

The TIG we had when I was toolmaker  ( repairing / building up cores in mold tools ) had a foot control so you did not have to pull away to stop .

Respectfully disagree. Any inverter MIG will do arc as standard with an extra £20 lead. However, a wire feed unit for an inverter arc will cost in excess of a basic inverter MIG that will do arc too.
