My comments about Harbour Freight and their service, if it plugs in or has moving parts look elseware . I bought one of their 2.5 Kw spot welders last summer while on a trip south of the border , brought it home , put the plug on it and tested it on three spot welds on 20 gauge body metal. Worked fine so I put it away till the fall planning on using it for my 47 Dodge rod project. Well the beautiful summer weather changed and it was time to start the 47 Dodge project. The first spot weld went ok , the second one let massive amounts of smoke and flame from the winding ( typically not a good thing). No problem....Harbour Freight has a good service plan.....NOT. Six unanswered emails explaining the problem all including the many other complaints that are already posted on the internet as well as one hour on hold to be told there will be no warrantee as well as we would rather NOT DEAL with Canadians. I will pull it apart and rewind it. It was a good price for a spot welder a very bad price for a boat anchor. Save you money and but the HTP invertig and you will find out what international service really is about.
Just my two cents worth to avoid others from becoming victims.
