Some feedback on the Oxford 270-1 Single Phase
You "Can" run it on a 13 amp plug - erm but not "Flat out" - I need to go shopping for a 16 amp unit ! The welds are superb - I've welded now for 25 Yrs + my old Welder was good, this is superb, I love the synergic controller, this will make an average welder good, and a good look, well BL**DY Good !.
It had sat in the workshop and I had just had a quick "Play" welding 2 x 6mm Steel together, did a nice clean bead, very impressed, decided I needed some time to practise with it and get used to it, as I often find with anyones elses welder it takes time to learn the machine - Then a Mate appeared, with .....
1 X Bit of stainless (old) Exhaust, and 1 x Bit of mild steel (old and rusty) exhaust, and asked me to "Weld dem up mate" I was so delighted, even more so to see I had 1mm wire in the machine. So, set it to 2nd lowest setting, and tried on a of cut, and the machine blew a hole and then automatically lowered its own settings !.
Then cleaned it all up I welded a beautiful weld- all the way around this nightmare bodge without blowing a hole, lowered its self to 29 +/_ amps
and it buzzed away, just amazed, superb kit.
Erm - You made me actually pay for it ? :-D
I am absolutely chuffed with this machine, the warranty gives reassurance, the price is decent, and the weld quality is nearly as good as your service Thanks Gary,
