    Hello from France

    I retired to South-West France five years go. I'm slowly restoring a 1934 car, and am getting to grips with a fantastic but sensitive Multiplaz 3500 welder. It runs off single phase power, water and ethanol;...and TIG type welding rods. No gas cylinders! No drums of welding wire!

    Best Wishes to all.

    Hi
    I'm probably close - I'm in England.
    I am welding for hobby now , but have been welding cars for years.
    NOW I want to be a beautiful welder.

    How does your Tig welder work with no gas?

    I think it is a Browns gas plasma type welder.

    Hello Geoff,
    This contraption zaps water into a plasma flow, and the welding process is then similar to old fashioned gas welding. Take a look at the Multiplaz website for demos. There are various references on this blog, not all of them complimentary! However, I think that this machine is more suited to hobbyist rather than industrial use. Keep working periods short, get used to frequent refilling (distilled water), and thereby avoid overheating of the quartz tube!
    I loved my old Migatronic MIG welder, but would not want to return to the costs of running it. I tried TIG as well, but it didn't suit me.
    If you should ever find yourself in the Charente, feel free to call in and get some practise.
    Best Wishes,
    Paul
