​My finger accidentally 'like' your post. Anyone any idea how to remove an accidental 'like'? Cheers.
TIG is used with a filler rod, much like oxy-acetylene welding. Mig uses a wire fed up through the torch.
TIG is a much more expensive system, not really for the amateur.
Will this be up to scratch.
I don't think there's any money to be made buying and reselling these migs. They will be cheap Chinese migs and you can buy similar ones around the same price. However, if you have a limited amount of welding to do on say a car restoration project, or you just need to get your car through an mot, something like this would probably be up to the job.

The mig-welding.co.uk forum is a fantastic resource for anyone starting welding or needing advice.

Well that is the 'curse' of looking on hukd! Although I suppose if it is usually £400 then someone could potentially sell it on for a bit less than that in a few days and make some profit. Depends what the demand is for this type of item. Also the possibility of being scammed though. So probably not worth the hassle to make a quick few pounds.

Excellent, thanks. Bought for log burner. They actually seem to sell the same ones as log burner gauntlets.
Initial thought: cheap deal but will resist (I don't weld).

Then I read the reviews (you know, just to check I definitely don't need them) and useful for log burners, fire pits and even cutting prickly hedges. Result: sucked in

2nd review is amusing..
Awesome just bought 2 pairs! 1 for the log burner the other for feeding the crocodile

Cheers mate, I was just biting into a cheese & bean sandwich as I read … Cheers mate, I was just biting into a cheese & bean sandwich as I read your comment, I don't really feel like finishing it now for some reason....

are they also good to replace toilet paper and then wash??

what do I do to check if nasty spiders are hiding inside??

Buy another pair, keep them in the fridge (spider-free), then use the second pair to protect your hands when you check the first pair.

Arc Welder at Aldi - £39.99
Found 10th Dec 2013Found 10th Dec 2013
Was thinking of buying an Arc Welder to do domestic tasks. These are the only bits of details they have mentioned on their site. What do you guys think? Would this be any good? Don… Read more
Arc welders are great if your repairing or making a trailer or brackets to hang up your ladders in the garage .If it's car repairs you want to do , it's a mig you want .
Not used one but i hear they cut out to easy on a constant run (thermal cutout)

And if folks blow holes in steel with an arc welder they they cant weld !
no good for learning with either unless you want to practice making holes.
I let my oxy-acetylene rig go a few years back because the gas bottle rental got to be too much considering the amount of use I got out of it. So I got a cheap arc welder to fill the gap. Haven't been able to get on with it at all. Certainly you won't be able to weld up a rusty car. They might be good for joining two clean new pieces of steel of exactly the same thickness provided it is the right thickness and you have exactly the right rod for that thickness.

Ok for thick material, no good for thin sheet, like car bodywork.

I hate when someone is making knocking down comments like this. The fact is that this welder is available for £39.99 and yes it is DIY welder, so if you compare it with the Clarke welder it's a great deal. But if you comparing it with professional heavy duty welders then it is not fair.
Some people are happy driving Corsa yet there is always someone who will tell them that their Range Rover is better.
Its ok for small jobs but if you weld longer than 10 mins it overheats and you have to wait till it cools down again,usually about 15 mins

@morrig exactly, cooker socket usually wired 30 amp + a nail instead of 13amp fuse yyyyhaaaa
Just a thought but the cooker control switch which have a socket could be used and put higher rating fuse for 13amp plug?
Great for bonny night,ace sparks for the kids!

Only a 10% duty cycle at the highest amp setting anyway so it will cut out a lot if your trying to weld continously.
Best to clear up the ACTUAL FACTS here:- bought one Nov 2011
# Its an arc welder NOT a mig , and so apparently very hard to use on thin car body panels - a mig is more suited
# It says on the box NOT to be used with a 13a plug - so of course it will get hot and blow as your overloading the plug , the socket and prossibly the cable supply also >> NOT CLEVER <# You need a dedicated 30amp supply or higher , this ideally will be from a single dedicated 30 to 40 amp rcd from your house fuse box, the supply cable will also need to match the amperage - best not to lob it in on a ring main spur and cross your fingers ...
# The 30 amp (or higher) cable will then terminate in a 3 pin (which is fine) female 32 amp socket (same as caravan hook ups) a 3 pin is fine , you then wire the welder to a the matching 3 pin 32a (caravan) plug
# for those wanting to do a proper supply to edition 7 rules

Personally I wouldn't pay to much attention to reports of cutting out , getting hot or blowing fuses unless they say the supply is 100% correct ...

Just picked mine up. Not fitted with a 13Amp plug sticker on the power cable “Important: This high-power appliance is not supplied with a domestic 3 pin plug and may not be connected to a standard domestic socket. The welder must be connected to a 30 A fused spur

It's fine provided you use the thin 1.6mm sticks

Whats the difference? I guess maybe thinner sticks for small jobs or lower melting point metals, thinner metals?

For car repairs this is too heavy, you would burn through the sheet, … For car repairs this is too heavy, you would burn through the sheet, better with a MIG welder

Last year i purchased a wolf welder gas/gasless off ebay brand new for around £150.. Used it on gasless for the time being until i got gas, only using it for thin car material for banger racing, if added up only used for around 10 hours! Packed up the other week and has been sent off whilst still under warrenty and they seem to be taking there time to look at it! Definatly would'nt go for a wolf again but seemed a good price at the time.
Have you tried welding with it yet?

OK, I've opened it up now, its a rebadged Wolf. Even the support desk is [url]www.wolfsomething.com/powercraft[/url]...

it also has a 3 year manufacturer warranty, I guess on top of the 2 year Aldi warranty.

To be honest its not even come out of the box yet!! This nice weather is too good to be sat indoors welding...

I've just picked one up, and it's even better than I first thought;.

Thanks very much for the update and info. Had any chance to have a go yet? Any indication of what it may be rebranded from?
