    Eager to get welding and start knocking out the stuff i want. I set up a tiny corner of my garage. due to not having anything else to setup on i decided to use a plastic paste table (gasp) its actually not that bad and will do for now. Ive got 3 sheets on the way to set up a bit more. My R-Tech 180 in my opinion is a little gem. Very easy to setup, im impressed with it.

    I managed to knock up my Rock & Roll camper van bed too.

    You’re just showing off now with a full corner to use.

    I also have the R-Tech 180 and very impressed with it.

    I too am enjoying the R Tech. Have either of you got a 5k reel in and working? Mine is struggling (.9 Lincoln flux cored).
    Nice corner btw

    Hey @Simon.b what the rock and roll camper bed? Does it fold or something?

    Equally @Mark 2 that's one hell of a table, what's with the industrial intricate design? And welcome to the forum!

    Just clamping opportunities really and the hexagon was referencing nuts, bolts and Simmons drums. Thanks for the welcome.

    Not had any problems with 5kg reels but only used the ones supplied by R-Tech in 0.6 and 0.8mm. Your problem might be 0.9 you are using as the feeder is only 0.6 or 0.8mm , you may need a 1mm feeder to pull it through better.

    There is a huge difference in price for a R & R bed that has not been tested to one which has been M1 tested simply because the M1 test procedure is VERY expensive!! Looked into it myself and unless you have many many orders waiting its just not worth the money. The market is pretty well stitched up with established M1 tested bed manufactures and boy can they charge!!! Use my Van to camp myself and have knocked up a simple frame and simply throw on our double mattress - with the night heater on its just like sleeping at home only with a better view. . . . . . out the window I mean, not the wife. . . .

    They are not currently being tested but its something im looking to do in the new year at some point. The bed ive just made im more than happy with and confident it would pass. Looking at the designs etc of other M1 tested beds.
