Having Trouble Getting my arc welders electrode to get the initial spark/bite, ive prepped the metal im trying to weld aswell as the area the clamp it clamped to, Its a weldmate max 100amp welder, any suggestions as to what it could be
I was given this welder by a friend. SIP migmate 130. It’s probably as old as me. I’ve knackered swan neck and they’re obsolete now. My options are to buy a complete torch £65 if they can get them, buy a different torch£? or a different unit all together. I’ve been looking at the Clarke 135te but also read some bad reports about Clarke welders. I’m doing car body repairs. Is it worth repairing this unit or should I stretch to a new unit?
Has anyone bought these? I am curious about the leather. Is it thin? Is it the rough suede type or the smooth finished type of leather? These are things I just cant tell from pictures and videos on their website.
