    There's a nice hitachi 350 on ebay, been going around for months - south wales, would it be powerful enough? It's single pulse. I know he'll take offers around the £350 mark.

    It's a separate feeder job with a euro torch. I think there's 10m interconnecting leads with it. South wales/cardiff area, don't buy it without viewing it/trying it as they're a bit specialised and although well built and well supported by the distributor, there's only 1 distributor and they're in bristol.

    I've got the tig brother of the machine and I've watched that hitachi mig go round and round on eBay for literally the past 6 months but I don't need it enough to justify buying it.

    We don't need anything too fancy as all its doing is downhand fillets .just long ones hence the cooler n long leads .ive had a murex 500 amp synergic on ebay for months n months ,getting to the 99p start time soon. it is a god awful machine though ..

    Do you need meters for en1090? If not there's a boat load of 400-500a machines on there at the mo. I spotted an ewm, a saf oerlikon, a lincoln, etc etc.

    Hi hood ,yes we need water cooling .itl be doing 15 mtr runs in one hit .gas cooled will do but hell it cooks the torches and your fingers .The reason I was looking at the lorch is we have a lorch 350 which is brilliant so was trying to go for similar .Thanks anyway

    The Lorch MIG is a tidy set, but for a little more money you could get yourself a brand new Tec Arc 350 water cooled separate with torch etc.. and that'd have warranty too.

    Might be worth considering.
