Notes

This is a "by feel" kind of a tool, Harbor freight says it all regarding precision.
Test your weld for strength, there is a chart in the manual for weld times, spacing and pressure.
I've been happy up 3/16 aluminum.
If you want to make different tongs or tips, I think that would be awesome.
I haven't tried copper yet, think it might weld to the tongs.


This tool requires authorization for use.
