    Disconnected it while testing and tidying..:laughing:
    Will mount it in a box if I keep the welder, or fit another to the front.. ;)

    im now looking at a 130s murex welder..:laughing:

    would it be better than this one for light work ?
    as i believe it might have a better low amp current for thin body work ..

    Maybe with 0.6mm

    I have been having a bit of a play with my welder ,


    I have welded my American car before , but that is quite thick steel and not really so rusty..


    I got a pair of vw camper heat exchangers that had a couple of holes in and welded a couple of patches onto them,

    The steel on the h/x is quite thin with a fair bit of rust and pitting,


    I started with this likkle hole, decided to make a path onto the fixing strap

    tacked it in place ,,

    some bits had to be welded with lots of blobs …

    then when there was new metal there I could run better beads on top ..

    then started on this other bigger hole

    I dished the surrounding area ..gently


    Then shaped a piece and tacked it in

    I fould a couple of thin areas so tacked small plates on to them

    I have almost finished the gringing and cleaning up, and the repairs look good,

    I have spent around an hr on this and have learnt a lot about my welder settings and welding rusty thin metal

    Well it's been a while and the murex has been good..
    But the contractor coil is farked...
    It's a little 240 one ant ideas on availability...

    Might be worth thinking about replacing the whole contactor as the one in there has been used quite a lot over the years and finding the correct coil to fit what you have may not be so easy.

    Yea the contacts look a bit pitted

    But as it has 4 N/O and 3 N/C contacts..
    and numerous wires it looks like it may need two contactors...

    Maybe look at 3 phase contactors they may have enough contacts (and may be cheaper !)

    I suspect this is a 3 phase contactor
    with 4 n/o poles + 3 n/c
    I'm a sparky type ,
    but the way this has been done is far from straight forward..:confused:

    I wonder if I could get the coil rewound it's only 2" square..
