I spent an hours drive to the local Harbor Freight store to pick up a pair of bolt cutters, a 12 ton press, and a spot welder. Press was sold out and the 20 ton was $250.00, so no go there. Bolt cutters and welder were a do!
My question is on the 230 volt spot welder. I can't adjust the handle on the spot welder to firmly grip the receiver and bottom rail and lock at the same time without the tongs starting to bend. The instructions are somewhat vague on handle position upon locking so as not to blow out a spot weld. Do you have to lock the handle or can you just hold good pressure on it? Also they say the plug is supplied, but my box was sealed from the factory and no plug. What gives?
I am one of the Yugo buyers and need this to finish all of them. Anybody with so experiance can chime in to give me a hand.
