This might be a bit off topic, but I think some kind person might be able to help.
I have let myself in for a job removing and re-welding four tubular body mounting brackets on my nephew's "Dax" Cobra kit car.
Dax have welded the mounts in the wrong place on the chassis, (or molded in the scuttle hoop brackets in the wrong place on the body molding, either way they don't line up with each other.
The problem is that the shed he is working in has no mains power and he works off a small generator, I knew that his gen wouldn't have the guts to power my Tig set, so I have just tried my own Genarc 2.2kw gen and I can hold and arc at 25 amps, but no chance at 50amps (didn't bother to try anything in between) I'm guessing that I will need upwards of 70 amps.
The welder is an invertor set if it makes a difference.
So my question is can someone make a stab at how much of a gen would he need to beg/hire to do the job, I'm guessing up about 5/6kw output might be in the ball park?
Another minor question....does anyone know how to turn off the " replace text" function while typing in Forte Agent?I just can't find how to turn it off and I'm rather sick of it!
