Arc welder galore at Opies

Electric welding is the process of joining parts by fusion. This is due to the heat produced by an electric arc – hence the name “arc welding”

There are unique advantages to using an arc welder over a standard welder, from it being considerably more economical, lighter joints that have the strength equal to the parent metal, and offering an overall improvement in the surface finish of the welded joint. Now, Opies are pleased to announce that we sell arc welders, the perfect addition to the workshop for all you tinkerers out there!

Opie Oils now sell the Maypole 130A Arc Welder. This is a kit, and comes with loads of handy accessories, including an electrode holder, earth clamp, welding cable, brush/hammer and a protective mask. Everything you need to get cracking with the next project!

This 130 amp portable arc welder comes complete with all the accessories needed for a thorough job. The unit itself produces a variable step-less output current from 50-130 amps. The other main features include thermal overload protection, a robust steel case, carrying handle and easy to read electrode to power gauge.
