I'm fed up with my temperamental Clarke 150 amp MIG welder (I bought it cheap second hand so not crying about it) and want something decent to replace it.
I have had in the past (my father nicked it off me!) an older (circa 2003) Sealey Supermig180 and that did work very nicely when looked after.
I will be using it to fabricate stuff up to about 5mm thick in steel and will also be welding thin tin body panels too.
I liked the larger torch on the Sealey compared to the hobby feeling Clarke one.......so what do you guys own and recommend?
What brands are good, which are pants? I will go and chat to my local welding supplier but wanted to seek knowledge from the horses mouth....the end user.
Budget - nothing too silly (so no industrial recommendations please as I'm limited to standard 13amp ring main - although I will install a 30 amp ring if required)
Many thanks in advance
