Man, the cheapness of this makes me want to take up welding!

If only I had a clue what to do with this...

Voted hot anyway, as it's a cool gadget for not much cash!

Well I couldnt resist it at that price, I can retire my old oil filled Oxford welder to welding 1/2" and above stuff now.
Plus with an inverter you can fit a TIG kit to do all that other exciting stuff you always fancied doing ;-)

Bored yet ;-)

I've always wanted to have a play with welding but need to do some research. Looks as though toolstation also have an arc welder for £25 inc mask etc which i assume is also a bargain. So what are the differences between these three machines then?

Also where can I get cheap box section steel?

Inverter welders are lighter than the old transformer type arc welders, because they are electronic they are easier to start an arc and generally give a better weld for those who dont weld much, also you can add a TIG kit Google here) if you get really into welding stuff.
The local scrap yard or small steel suppliers will always be able to sort you some steel out to practice on for little cash.

Power supply? this runs direct from a 13amp mains socket, no further kit needed though I would suggest welding an old rusty mini with an arc welder is not really the place to start as the metal will be very thin and you will no doubt burn more holes in it than there were when you started.

Can I suggest a small "no gas" MIG welder if you want to weld rusty cars, it will give you much more control over the weld for penetration and how far the heat spreads, not so many blow holes either!

As Mike says, for repairs get a MIG. This sort of thing is only of any real use for construction purposes ie , building a trailer frame/fences etc.
#8
That sounds like an awesome deal. I've always wanted to have the tools for welding but never knew that much about it. I take it that this is just the inverter power supply so I'd still need to get the gun, electrode feeder and the CO2 gas?

That is a great price though.

I think you need to go google on how to weld so you know which sort of welder for which job otherwise you may end up with something thats not much use to you.
This welder is an ARC welder and comes with everything you need to start to weld, except maybe the electrodes (sticks, rods) Those you buy according to the sort of metal (mild steel) thickness of metal to be wlded and current intended to be used.
What I think you are considering is a MIG welder which can be gas or no gas type, the no gas type uses flux coated wire on a spool to weld with and usually comes as a complete kit ready to weld thin mild steel. If you opt for a gas MiG welder then you need to buy gas cylinders of inert gas to use with it, either an Argon mix or straight Co2 are available for around £7 a can.

Just in case anyone was wondering, this price includes free next working day delivery:thumbsup:

VOTED HOT!

This will burn up to a 2.5mm thick electrode, ideal for thin metal but if you want to weld anything like 6mm mild steel or above you'd need something more powerful. Heat and rep added though, great price:thumbsup:

Godness me no! I would have trouble even using my MIG welder on that with the shed metal being so thin, not sure I could turn my 200amp beasty down far enough to get a weld on that without blowing through it.

Seriously considering this and I expect, if not suitable for me I should be able to re-sell it for about the same money so not really too much of a gamble.

Look here.

Rizla01 the little welder you pictured above is not an inverter model, it uses a transformer and is not capable of the soft start (no rod sticking) that the inverter model will give you. No finess at all but ok if you just want to stick the garden gate back together ;-)

If you look around on Toolstations site you will find the same welder in this OP for sale (not clearance) for £162.55:w00t:

They also have a little arc welder like in your picture for just £19 code 80506

Or 160Amp code 31689 Arc Welder in clearance for £25

anyone thinking of getting into welding needs to be clear on what they need the welder for... for most automotive stuff, and general construction and sheet panelwork, a gas mig is what you need...

I just found this site, looks very handy for those learning to weld! http://www.mig-welding.co.uk/

I myself learned the hard way, dropped in at the deep end, welding a new back end on a rusty mini! (could have done with the above site!)

tis a hot deal if that is the type of welder you need! but most hobbyists need MIG! (or maybe TIG, but you need extra kit on top of the deal welder)

Lol, that was stored in the dining room till the wife got the hump. Gas bottle was in the cellar:thumbsup:

Funnily enough though I actually prefer to run flux cored through it on a 1mm tip. Bit of a waste of money but it makes the machine a bit lighter lol.
[mod]#26
So your using a .8mm liner then? expensive on the wire but ok if your not using it much I guess:thumbsup:
#27
Not too bad cost wise as I get the 4.5kg spools from Machine Mart (as its local). Compared to what a garage would charge me for the work its still a massive saving, probably around 80-90%. Obviously not as much as a 15kg standard spool and CO2 bottle though lol.

And if I got a garage to do the work i'd miss out on all the burns up my arms and back:giggle:

the battery chargers look cheap too, this welder.. looks pretty cheaply made, i know this is a super price though, i live and work on a farm mike would you suggest spending more would be better. we currently have a transformer type stick welder, sealey ithink.
[mod]#31
Well they are prob made in China to a price but as Silverline UK warranty all their power tools for 3yrs I really dont think you can go wrong. I have a big old oxford oil submerged transformer welder but its just too big and heavy. The thing with inverter models is they are so light, they come with a shoulder strap so you can be half way up the side of a silo welding without having to have 30ft welding leads.
You cant expect to run it at full amps for more than say half a stick without a cooldown but for general small work it should be fine.

Well Sussed Shengis.

Had ya guessing there for a bit, tho.:)

Oh I want one, I really really want one but how do I persuade my hubby that it's a good toy to have:thinking: I haven't done any welding since I was at school! Hang on, I'm sure there's loads of things I could "just knock together" on my lorry :whistling: Under chassis carriers etc . . .:roll:
#34
Their own website also lists it at £162! Bargain!
#35
Received next day, just used and it seems impressive, maybe it won't last years, but at this price who cares :thumbsup:
