IGBT Welder
 
Anyone have experience of these inverter mma welders vs a standard transformer type. They seem alot lighter and smaller and claim they don't stick as much. Also what does "hot start'' on them mean.

I can't weld for peanuts. When ya start to strike a weld, you effectively make the tip of the rod scratch along the surface to be welded, this action helps prevent the rod from sticking solid to the workpiece. The hot start sales pitch seems to be aimed at overcoming this particular issue.

But anyways, the biggest take home message in dis post is my lack of welding skills.:bag:

IGBT stands for Insulate Gate Bipolar Transistor

Inverter welders are fantastic compared with the old transformer types, that thing however is a pile of cheap Chinese shite, I've seen them marketed under various brands and even the quality of the accessories is crap.
Hot start gives you a burst of current when the arc starts to prevent the rod sticking, to my mind if hot start is there it needs to be adjustable or you will just burn holes on thinner stuff. If you need to stick an old gate together it might do the job but for anything else its not much use. The arc is very unstable off them and the duty cycle is very low.

Don't know anything about that particular yoke.

I have an inverter stick welder from Kilkenny Welding Supplies. Kuhtreiber brand, excellent welder, burns 3.2mm rods all day. Also burned low hydrogen rods with it, didn't seem to trouble it.

Supplied with a proper leads as opposed to most of the cheaper ones ( as mentioned above) About 300 as far as i remember.:thumbsup2:

I wouldn't say they'd be into stick welders, too much slag
