    Hi, I've just picked up this mig welder, I dont know much about it tbh, I believe it's a thermal arc fabricator 400, I know it's a 3 phase mig welder but can anyone anyone tel me anything about it? I believe they can be used for arc/stick welding? How about tig?
    Are these welders any good? I'm assuming it's old?

    Thanks in advance

    Friend of mine has a single phase Fabricator 210 I think it is and it's mig only transformer unit. The multi function ones are usually smaller inverter units.

    Probably could use it as a stick or MIG plant only. But it will be a good MIG plant from what I've seen in the past
