I agree, I have the same one but it`s from MTA (MigTigArc) in portsmouth, same machine but badged as theirs and blue not red. It works a treat & after years of mucking about with hobby migs and crappy wire feeds it is a real eyeopener to use one of these, especially when you want to stitch weld in short bursts, the wire feed is fantastic, (the motor is like a big car wiper motor). I can`t recall what I paid for it a few years ago but I seem to think it was slightly less than Weldquipe & free next day delivery too. I also don`t think it was really much more expensive than a big Clarke welder.
Reliability is excellent, no probs at all, well worth the investment.
Dennis.

Default Proper welder!

I've been tacking my chassis together with my cheapo (99.99) hobby gasless mig welder and been practicing the full welds on some scrap.

Had a go with a PROPER BIG BOYS welder today and it's a billion times easier and produces far better welds.

I have a thermal ark dc tig set for sale 150 amp this is a top quality machine i paid 895 for it last year its as new condition if anyone is interested i'd let it go for 350. This is an industrial quality machine you can weld all day long full power and it won't cut out like all the cheap sets do. Runs on 240v supply
I use these sets at work and there bullet proof little machines.

Has anyone had any experience with this type of welder and would it be suitable to weld the chassis.
