hell he's got that 'juiced up', for 12mm .... mind, it is only a 250A set so 'spose it'd equate about right ..... compared to me old 5/600A sets, barely ticking over

this is all 1mm wire ??? I'll give them a try first chance I get

What is the power required for your new zapper? Are your able to run it on a 16amp plug or you got a 32amp one fitted?
My new shed has 100amp supply coming in but nothing more than a few 13amp sockets and was thinking of expanding the options with a few more outlets round the place. This was going to be my steed but having seen what you got and the price difference including the frame and wheels it may be swaying my opinion .

that looks some tool Mike .... but .... for the savings made, you could buy a separate inverter TIG/stick set and still have change ... quite a bit.

Thermal Arc is nice stuff, but that's a hell of a price for that, especially compared to Mr Weeks's offering.
bit stingy on the ancillaries with that and I'm not a lover of Tweco torches .. always seem cumbersome in the hand ... I've a little 150A Tweco which is tiny and a lovely thing to use on light work .... can almost use / hold it like a pencil ... its bigger brothers aren't so sweet

This arrives with a 16A plug, pre-fitted and I was running that off my Caddy adapter lead on a 13A socket, as I've yet to install a 16A socket on the wall of a box .... with seemingly no issues

Thermal Arc actually produce some very nice lil' 'caddy' type inverter sets - stick/TIG for not a lot at all . Bought my BIL one a few years ago and was well pleased with its performance.....for a couple o' hundred quid

I've bought non brand name welding sets off fleebay in the past and been nothing but disappointed in them, it starts off good but as soon as there is a slight issue and you need backup it's not there, where as all the big names have distributors or service centres up and down the country. It's sometimes worth paying the extra for that. But what your saying about the set you have sounds like it could be a brand name in the making. Keeps us posted on your experience with it

Oh my, just having a quick look at his website and wasn't expecting to see this. classic old school advertising with the lovely welding machine presenter.
