I realise this is an old thread but hopefully you guys can help. I have bought a Powercraft 160A Arc Welder from Aldi, it was only £29.99 and I have been very tempted to start some kind of welding for years so I couldn't resist. After being confused at seeing no plug on the wire I have spent a few hours now reading up and trying to figure out what I need. My house is rented so major electrical work is out of the question, minor stuff I think I could get away with if that helps. This is my power board or fuse board or whatever it is its called if this is also any help. I am pretty sure I wont be needing to weld anything huge just yet and only want to mess about with an old metal bed frame and a few bits and bobs so I was thinking about just buying a handful of fuses, fitting a regular 13amp plug and giving it a go. Worst case scenario? My mains box trips (like when one of my lights blow) and/or the fuse in the plug simply blows? I can live with that if I can at least try something light before investing in this whole thing without being fearful of breaking something important with the house electrics. Any help or advice would be superb.
