    its the only downside , if you compare it to say a gys screen its to be blunt ,pathetic, but wouldnt part with all the same

    it is, just so useable/portable , plug an play.used mine on two thin extention leads about 50/60 foot each one , then welded on some lugs on the gates ,so that a lock could be used, took a few moments, to cart my eland around would have been a chore.

    So does no one else take the silca packets from their new wire and keep adding them into the machine where the wire goes? Never had any problems

    Really good value John, For their size they certainly tick all the boxes.

    they are worth it if you do a lot of welding which I dont do so much these days .
    so its not worth it for me now.

    The factory that makes EWM wire has a very similar process to Lincoln.
