Nah

Fed up with welding up shims :D

Used one at my mates workshop, he reckoned it out performed the 3 phase ESAB they had, and thats

saying something, I had a go, and was sort of :blink: in love :wub: in a manly fabricatory sort of way

you understand :)

I'm a huge beliver in having some thing good running at 40% all day long than something OK and

flat out all the time, synergic is also a extra bonus

Yup :)

the base can sit in the workshop, the top unit with the wire a welding gun can be moved 10 metres from

base unit which brings portability from dragging 120 kgs of welder about, plus a 4 metre torch and

8 metre earth makes for easier access

Synergic - full Synergic means that it will automatically adjust the voltage according to whatever wire feed speed you tell it

you are using - ie you set in say 1.00mm and the typeof metal - say steel, and thickness, this then sets

the machine to a start point, start welding and the machine will make cointinous minor adjustments - ie

you will see current and wire speed move, maybe a fair bit on starting, less as it "tunes" the perogfram. often

the programs can then be saved for future use on same jobs etc

this one can be switched off, but synergic is new to the single phase units, has been the preserve

of big £s 3 phase till last year or so

the one I am getting is not full synergic - from oxfords site :

"These machines feature synergic control. This means the wire speed increases as the

welding voltage increases, so once the wire speed control is set, changing the output

voltage setting will change the wire speed automatically and no further adjustment of wire

speed is normally necessary."

The Oxford welders are made by the same people (Technical Arc Services), that make the Portamig welders that have been discussed on here before.

FWIW, I have a Portamig 215, that's been great over the last 4 years or so. The Oxfords look similar, and have pretty decent specs.

Very nice Nige.

Thats a bloody big plant to run on single phase,

At least it gives you the option of turning the synergic off, i've never got on with synergics the damned things always seem to mess around with the settings right when your in the midle of the most critical or visible weld.

I think the synergic function is more suited to production rather than the infinate vairiables we face on most jobs.

If your house electrics system uses MCB’s then you will need a 63A class C MCB........... I run a single phase 300A synergic.

I have also fed the workshop with a single feed from the distribution box of 10mm twin & earth.

Also my nearest neighbour (100 yards away) complains about the lights flickering when I am welding. I pointed them in the direction of the electricity company for a solution and heard no more about it.

Mostly because they're pretty expensive.

I'd love an AC tig set, but I'm going to be a while saving up for it!

Looks good Nige,

Show us some weld porn!

As above I have a very nice Portamig that has done me proud for a few years and today I picked up a 160 Amp AC / DC Industrial TIG, just got to work out what all the settings do

TIG welding Aluminium, how hard can it be?!
