Bought one so will post what it’s like after my testing. Fingers cross!! :D
Its ok-ish for the price, but don't expect to do any serious work with it, just small repairs, as hinges, handles, broken garden tools, these sort of stuff...for about the same money I would suggest get second hand, one of these really old and heavy oil cooled welders which are far superior...
You could try to float in the cardboard box the welder comes in. You’d have more of a chance
The duty cycle isn't clear at what amperage it was tested but we will assume it's at 100 amps. So 4 mins 11 secs (approx' 1 minute per 2.5mm electrode) then wait 9 mins 30 secs for it to cool down again before being able to weld again. The welding next duty cycle is often shorter as the transformer will still have a higher temperature than when it was first used.
You can't weld wood with this.
