    Did the welder come from Aldi? if so get in touch with the number on the box (most Aldi stuff has sticker that says "don't take back to shop,call this number nnnnnn" for faults) Had a multi type jigsaw from them that failed. Phoned the number (or went online can't rember) few days later recived replacement saw and no request for ori back! Welder maybe a case of they send you replacement and you swap over with deliver man maybe?
    If it's not from Aldi then either post pic of gear (with ruler near for size) or try rc buggy/car type people on ebay as they do gears of all sorts. Headach is a search on ebay for gears will chuck up load of war of gears (pc game) or what ever it's call and that gear punk (steam) stuff. Keep looking it there some where.

    Powercraft is the Aldi brand Mike, Wolf were sold by UKHS who still sell the same machines but under a different name.

    Paul, it might be worth contacting UKHS to see if they carry any spares, if not then you will probably have to retro fit a new feed assembly or sell it as 'spares or repairs' and get another machine. ;)
     
  6. UKHS are really good about sending replacement bits. Bought a multi tool petrol strimmer thing once from them (Saved my paper round money for about 8 months when I was 12)
    The chainsaw attachment was missing the oil bottle cap and I rung them and had a whole new chainsaw attachment 2 days later! Could have rung up again and said it never turned up and got another!
