Tool question guys...
#1
Hi friends!! how are you all today??

Well... i´m at my office right now... (too far away from my favorites metal sheets, rust and hummers) and i was remembering... I HAVE A SPOT WELD in my fathers lamp shop...

It is not much really, just an electric transformer conected somehow to 2 cupper ends that nothing... welds

I was wondering... why we all think on replacing factory spotwelds with our MIG welders istead of using this type of spot welders??... for what i can remember, the actual sport my welder makes are not as big as the factory ones but that could be modify by changing the cooper ends i think... Besides, this is a not that heavy or big machine and the arms are like... 20" long so i could reach a lot of places actually....

I´m sure most of you bodyworkers have been in front of a machine like this.. is not that PRO either so.. is there any issue that make this machine not useful??

Thanks!

It's the way to GO !! I had 1 in my last shop...Big time saver & is required for hss (high strength steel) Some oems are now requiring it as the only approved repair method on some of the new cars.

Yes. I you have access to a spot welder you should definitely use it. I guess most people use the mig welder because it's there and they don't have to buy a spot welder.
