Thats been one of my problems , I want to get something with a warranty to cover electronics on an inverter machine just in case of problems in the future.I am not going to do the deal with the guy if there is no warranty left on the welder.
I dont have that much in the shoptask maybe 2500 over the year but have made a few parts that have helped pay for the machine and not it seems like if I get rid of it I will just get a smaller mill not the lathe mill combo machine, the only time I use the lathe seems to be polishing so I can make a spindle with a chuck to polish instead of taking up so much room in my garage.
I would like to have a welder with a little more punch to it as well for when I do .250 work so I get better penetration and not have to bevel and do multi pass to get the job done..
