    I bought the 220V model and I have built 4 receivers using it with no problems. I see where it could/can burn through the metal, but you must be not paying attention to have it do so........

    It has a smaller window between welded and melted.

    I just looked over the balcony here at work and I see hundreds of 480V weld guns welding doors together. And I'm talking about .030 to .050 steel. It's more about the time vs current formula. I made a little timer setup with a contactor so I can run my miller 240V spot welder from .001 of a second up to 10 minutes with the push of a button. I'd really love to haul a robot home with me and set up an assembly line

    An electronic timer is great, but most home builders only do a few receivers and don't go to the bother/expense of hooking in a controller. They use the "*click* one mississippi, two mississippi, three mississippi *click*" timer. Those with 220volt models sometimes use the "*Click* one mississippi, two mississ [email protected]#%$$$#$&### *click*" timer.

    If you ever do get the robot set up in the garage, I'll be over at your place the next weekend!

    I wish I knew how to do this.

    The timing doesn't seem to work for me because of varying pressure, thickness, cleanliness, and fit.

    Sometimes they're perfect; othertimes I cuss.
