Thanks for your input guys. I think I’ll probably spring for a boc unit (was already looking that way), though my dad still thinks I should get a cheap one with a 3 year warranty...
I was always planning on running gas (was thinking Argo shield, but if straight CO2 will do the job cheaper I might look into that). I’ve seen flux core welds, not the prettiest.
What amperage would you recommend for welding the body work on the e28, it’s pretty thin, so I’d imagine it’d be quite low. Would 50 A cut it or is that too high?
There’s a used boc multi process 175 that’s caught my eye, however the mig minimum is 50A.
@gjm no need for arc yet, but most multi process welders have it. Not a selling point either way for me though.
@agent75 what’s the process behind convertering a fire extinguisher? That sounds like a cost effective way to go.
@Olaf I would love to do the welding course, but both hours in the day and timelines make that difficult.
@aja540i @Mr Vapour Thanks, that was roughly my thinking. Duty cycle doesn’t need to be too high, but I understand how it works. Already checked with an electrician and I just need the 15amp plug.
