Nice one John. Obviously AC as you're doing ally and there's evidence of nice cleaning action either side of the bead !

So i see you went and bought the exact same machine i got. =)


I have after the buy went and bought a different handle and cable package from kina so i got rid of that bloody stupid button on the handle. And then i bought a gaslens kit from china as well so i use way less gas when welding. =)

Awsome machine anyway.. been welding everything from 20mm plate to thin thin tubes for exhaust systems. =)

Crikey, John! I just got a mig welder I haven't learned to use... Now you get a TIG unit! I can't keep up!
Great video as usual. Keep 'em comming.

Nice welder john thanks for the explanation of the dials, I just have a 100 amp inverter and it does the job but would be nice to do aluminum and thicker metals.

Thanks for the vids John. Just spent the last hour hour watching them all. Really interesting. I want to get into welding but budget is an issue and there are so many different types I`m just weighing up all my options. Thanks again.

Nice John. There are some people on the Mig welding forum who wanted to see the weld results - would you mind me posting those pictures over there ?
