Hi Just going to start to teach myself to weld for a hobby always wanted to weld now I’m old enough to be responsible to own a welder I thought I would give it a try. I have spent 100s hrs looking at welders new and second hand. (I have now decided I daren’t risk a second hand one I don’t know enough to mess with it if it doesn’t work). Every time I start anew having given myself a few weeks off I come back to the same machine this machine is right at the top of my budget and by the time I buy all the bits at least £100 over. So, the bane of my life is this I’m hoping you long time welders will tell me to get a life and buy something else. IFL i-TECH 170 MIG INVERTER (PS) I know you won’t tell me to get a life it’s a good machine, I can’t weld but have no problem reading. Just looking for what I have missed in my research that you out there know, and I don’t.
