This came without a plug is it 3 phase or single also can i run the ones sold by clarke from a 13 amp household supply ive read varying reports or could i convert a household cooker socket to a 16amp outlet
Thanks for the reply mate ime clueless with regards this stuff so assuming its 2 phase could i run it from 1 of these
Also if its single phase but needs a 16amp plug would that work from it as well just not using all the power the converter has if two as opposed to 3 again my apologies if i sound a bit thick but thats why ime here haha
Yes ime welding new full inner wings and door aperature panels basicaly when you open the door its the complete a pillar up and around the roof back down to the door step the roof panel will need welding to this panel along the gutter its dificuilt to get in and clean and dress the weld here hence the spot welder i will be seam welding floors boot floor rear arches ect
I have a Clarke CSW13T spot welder and it needs a 32A supply to weld 2+2mm, the spec says a 25A current draw. The CSW6T spec says 16A so you might get away with a 16A supply if you are doing 0.8+0.8mm panels. One thing to remember, having air cooled tips they are only rated to 3 spots per minute with a 20 second down time minimum between welds.
The metal needs to be perfectly clean or new to get good consistent spot welds, anything rusty is a waste of time trying and good fit up helps too.
