Converters the other day. I don't weld but it was a good buy and you can
never have too many tools but.... when I tried it at home all would go well
for a few minutes ie the welder would do its thing and i would begin my
shaky attempts to weld but if i tried to run a bead for any more than a few
seconds the power would cut off courtesy of the earth protect device in the
main switchboard. I even tried it with a HPM earth leakage powerboard. Same
result(except it only stopped power to the welder and not the whole house).
Is this normal. It is rated for use on a 10 amp plug.
Is it buggered and hence the reason for it being cheap or am I doing
