    I think there’s an element of countering a left wing opinion. It’s almost like you’re not allowed to question anything to do with a protest

    Funny you say bechets. My girlfriend has been recently diagnosed with bechets and gets mouth ulcers. It’s apparently a very rare condition this bechets and little is known about it.

    She uses some toothpaste from Aldi as it doesn’t have sodium lauryl sulphate in, which can be a trigger for ulcers

    yeah just a regular plug, it was at my workshop which was a set up with normal 240v, a blue plug for higher amps when needed (never used it) and 3 phase. so the same as regular household circuit and like I say, only tripped a fuse once. mine is an inverter welder though so it was always designed for 240v.

    judging by the back panel I would say yours is capable too but I'm no sparky.

    if the diy thread is anything to go by, @Mr_Sworld is knowledgable on this sort of thing....?

    Looks like a good industrial bit of kit.

    You can run a foot pedal off this which will be very useful for thin wall.

    Looks like you can run it off 220v, if you run full power it will be using high amps and likely throw a fuse. Using on thin wall tubing you would be likely at around 70amps. This would be fine. I’ve only tripped a fuse once when tig welding and that was at around 200amps.

    You may want to see about getting a high amp supply to your garage like the ones used for an oven I think? As they have a higher draw. Probably wouldn’t need it though.

    The other thing to consider is a 3 phase converter, they’re a couple hundred ish. Would be useful if you find yourself buying a lathe or mill etc which likely will have 3phase.

    Will save having to dig in to this and rewire it to 220v.

    On the plus side it looks super simple and easy to use, has basic pulse and it will do arc too.

    Looks like it might be scratch start though which might be a bit annoying.

    A frame builder would melt it out with oxy acetylene before replacing the shell.

    Is it just the cup left in there or the whole unit?

    Oh right, it will stick well to polycarbonate. Try a small amount and see what happens

    Can you post a pic of it in its current state. Patching it up may make it look worse. There may be other options
