Monday morning I was gutted to find my Garage had been broken into and my welder had been stolen. Fortunately I am insured although there is an excess to pay The problem is my welder wasn't a very common brand in this country and the importer doesn't have any stock.
My insurance company are prepared to offer an equvalant product. I just need help to decide what the equivalent is!! Spec from web site below - MIG MAG compact wire feed welder Spot timer gives the possibility of welding two overlapped metal sheets with welding spots, when having access only from one side Rapid attach for "Euro" torch Adjustable burnback: What are your thoughts please as to the quality of the Decamig and any suggestions as to a replacement?
Sorry for long first post!! Hi Mate, Sorry to hear about your break in. Your right, your Deca machine is much higher quality than the replacements your insurance company have offered.
Having read the spec, I could offer a http: German made, PM me for more details. Also Weldequip offers some good quality Portamigs, not sure about spec but a lot of people on here rave about them.
The main thing is that you don't get fobbed off by the insurance company into having a inferior replacement. Thanks for your comments.
I have spoken to a local dealer today who has suggested 3 machines to approach the insurance company with. Baz-Cem , Dec 6, Wozzaaah , Dec 6, I have a Butters and it's a lovely smooth machine but it's not suitable for what I do so I had to upgrade to a Portamig There's not much difference in price between the butters and the portamig but the portamig has a far superior duty cycle.
Only the gas to change. Unfortunately the model I have access to appears to be no longer available, I have attached a link for the newer model, I'd be putting my money on this little beaut!!
On the latter, no idea on cost? I should add, a good purchase if you want to expand materials to weld. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account? No, create an account now. Yes, my password is:
