When you have saved some groats try here http://www.r-techwelding.co.uk/welding_ ... ial_Offers. backup ( never used it ) tech info and quality is one of the best, i bought a 160a tig as shop soiled with a scratch, never had any problems and has more power at the same amps as the professional one at work. :D

Dave my mig`s smoke capsule broke as well :o I have kept it in the shed for the toys so I can run .6 wire in it, all the workshop migs have .8 or 1mm and its a pain to keep swapping over. It was a sealey powermig 200 and it probably has done less than 2 hours work, it was the pro range which makes it worse as I paid north of £600 for it. Anyway its a long time out of guarantee so I had a quick scout on the bay of thieves and bought a SIP ideal 210 pro. for £100. The only thing it needed were the leads changed and a new torch, my mate at the welding supply shop brought round a natty little torch with a swivel ball at the machine end which allows for all the pulling about. Not that it matters but the thing is not so much a minimig but a bit of a monster at about a meter high :) Just having a play with it on some thin plate to get the feel of it.
