Got a fast reply from them already! Less than an hour!

Made in China. They say they have spare parts for them.


What ever else you can say they sure are on the ball for reply. I wait weeks sometimes to hear from a seller if they even bother to reply.

Not a terrible price but no gullco or victor. Heck, victor wants over $100 for the power switch alone.

Look for an old Airco. They are pretty solid machines. Never really liked the bug-os. Too much sheet metal.

Ya.. a new Victor up here is over $3000. I don't use one enought to warrant that much money right now.
I've been looking for a decent used one in Canada for a long time now. Still no luck!

Russ,you know they aren't anything more than a frame,a dc motor and some wheels right?;)

I bought a NOS Airco machine torch off Ebay for $4.00,it's about 4" overall without the tip.I'm gonna whip up a 10' rail from square tube,add a carrage,a small dc motor and control and attach it to one edge of the weld table outside at work.A quick straight line cutter-poor man's shear.

I also have a Union Carbide/Linde track burner from the 50's,real small,all metal made in Germany.It will make a cut on a par with the best plasma.Best feature it has is the ability to run on common angle iron,no special tracks needed.
