    I'm pleased with it, 70 bucks I think it was. I'm going back in June, I'll let you know beforehand and I can bring some stuff back for you.

    Get shorter leads and extention. Add ons. It's far better when your having to climb and as we know when your near the set you don't want leads coiling up. The nice thing about these little sets is they can come along with you even into tight spots

    I've already got quite a few short 3m/5m leads so would be nice to have a long set too

    Ebay is a good source of long lengths, I got 80m of 50mm aluminium before Christmas, it's perfectly decent.

    Exactly just make up some extention tails for those (plain end plugs are also a lot easier to undo from the heap of spaghetti you often end up with)
    Male ends on your leads, female on one end of your tails and a male on the other to go into the set.

    I'm expecting a full review, love to know if the arc is as good as on the fronius. Never ran a lorch machine, the fronius has always been a cut above everything else!

    The transpockets were well known for there cel capabilities.
    I too would like to see if the little lorch can match them particularly on this feature.
    I wouldn't be surprised if it does match the transpockets on this feature. It will have to go along way to prove it's as robust mind. I've seen a transpocket go through torture on such extreme it makes the saw films look tame yet it always burnt rods

    Hugh is kindly sending me some. I've also got an old oxygen bottle that has somehow had the ends fall off. :whistle:
    So may try some pipe welds.

    Is that a 6011 with a different flux?

    It's a high strength cel.
    Like a 6011 similar characteristics and easier to keep lit. Run nice on ac like a 6011.

    The first two numbers always reflect the tensile strength of a rod. The second two the type and recommendations for position, to be honest the positions are often a bit mixed up I have never understood them fully and they are often ignored once the engineer is out of sight in order to make bonus
