Item specifics

Used: An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition

This item is a ROCKWORTH AR120 mig welder. I have listed it as used as it is about 2 years old. Having said that  it has never actually been used. The guy I bought it from said  he bought it on a whim but never had any occasion to use it. I bought it with a particular project in mind but that has not come to fruition so the welder remains in pristine condition.

The only thing wrong with it is that it has been stored in strong sunlight. As you can see in pic 4 the paint has faded somewhat on one side.

Apparently these were a brand produced specifically for B&Q. This particular model had a retail price of £185.00, and that did NOT include gas or regulator.

I think they were intended for use with a proper gas bottle as the inlet is for a large pipe. It was my intention to use it with disposable bottles so  I bought  a regulator to suit them and made a simple adaptor to step up from  the smaller pipe.

I also had 2 bottles of CO2 from a time when I hired a welder so these can be included.

There is a roll of wire fitted to the machine. It is a bit rusty but should be OK. I also have a second roll but this has been around for ages so may not be any good.

Also included is the face mask, which as you can see has never been assembled. It has one clear and one  dark glass lens.

Finally there is a small bag of spares, including a tip and shroud and a few other bits and pieces. Oh, yes and the black plastic "thingy" on the right of pic 5... no clue what that is!!!

Collection welcome or I can courier for £15.00

The item is listed with NO RESERVE and you can bid from 99p.

Have added another pic to show that the welder is fan cooled. It is a 125mm fan.

According to one of the bidders (Culleycapple)  the black plastic "thingy" is an adaptor to allow the use of large reels of wire. Many thanks for the info.

Sincere appologies to all bidders for the cancelled bids, I know this puts some people off, hence this explaination. E-bayer lakay083175 entered a bid of £70.00, then cancelled it and re-bid £69.00 (WHY??)

Then he contacted me to ask if the welder needed gas as he knew nothing about welders?????? I told him that 2 bottles were included anyway as stated in the description. Actually I THINK it can be used with "NO GAS" wire but I'm not certain on that so don't take that  as gospel.

Then he asked me if I would cancel his bid, which I did. I'm SPEECHLESS.
