Spot welder advice

Recommended Posts

So I’m looking for a spot welder to build my jeep. I was thinking of one of the Sealey or SIP hand held jobs but as I can find little in the way of reviews, I thought I’d see if any members had some experience/advice to give.

Chris,

Although I cant help on the spot welder, I've been looking for a all in one converter for tig welding steel and alloy , there are machines that include a plasma torch some of these machines also have the ability to do spot welding with a single point gun, have a look on youtube there are a few videos etc. 

You say jeep build ? is this from scratch using new made panels etc?

I have had a couple of the low cost hand held ones, in fact I still have, and use the second one, the only failure I ever had was the timer went on the first one, not a problem as once you are used to it you can easily self time by watching and listening to the weld.  The first one was automated at one point by mounting it on a frame upside down with the lever being operated via an air cylinder which made it extremely versatile :)
