My experience of EWM UK and @Jim Davey is that they went above and beyond what they had to do to get me back up and running with my second hand, 10yr old EWM Phoenix. That gave me the confidence to sink a big chunk of money (for a one man band) into purchasing a new Phoenix. I still have the 10yr old one although it doesn't get used very often but it was used last week due to my new one being round at a job.You will not read or see threads on positive comments on multi thousand pound machine makers putting in the effort on after sales...
If you check the constant in my replies. It's that they are not identical but every now an again a new member pops up and starts the discussion again.Well I can't say that internals were exactly the same as I have never had an Everlast.
Outward appearance and control panel was identical and obviously from the same factory.
As to whether components on the boards were the same then I would say the likelihood is that they are but...
Just asking, not looking for conflict.
but how do you know that they are re-worked?
have you seen the machines before and after?
The parts they sent out required the casing to be drilled out as it was incorrect. Was a gas solenoid valve they sent and when I called they said it was the new version so to use it and modify the rear hole
this was on the mig btw
the tig was sent back and they claim that some o rings were missing in the machine. We never had it apart, it worked then didn’t work half way through a skilled tig welder using it
For a hobby machine they will do but when I look to buy my own tig it won’t be an rtech
