If you want to see a really really nice mig check out the EWM Pico Puls 180, it's a gem.


She's a beaut', just slightly out of my budget


To be fair it's out of most peoples, but for our hire fleet it's great, especially the metal thickness function, just dial in the plate thickness you are welding and it trims wire feed and volts to suit. Makes life really easy for beginners.

When using extension leads, this can effect a welders power, always best to use it straight from the plug in the wall. It can mostly effect the machines power when welding thick steel.

The only problem with pigeon s**t is time, grinding down all the high welds takes too much time and mess. Practice, practice and practice some more. I dont weld every weekend and it took me a while get use to my machine and to gain some tips that isn't really taught, just experience.

A few more tips is to keep the weld area very clean and as said rust pit free in the weld area, clean new steel to the cars good steel. Butt welding is good practice but takes time to do well, stencils and cutting up plate sections for a perfect fit takes time. I weld in time sections, 2 sec to get the weld pool and move every 2 seconds as i go along on thin steel especially. For thin steel there is another way, do a weld pool like a spot weld then trigger off, say 2 second weld pool, move half way across the weld and start again just before the first weld pool goes out.

do they still sell the iMIG 160 or has it been discontinued? The link that was posted earlier isn't working and I can't see it on their site
