I am looking at buying an arc welder in the near future. Does anyone
have any preferences, pros or cons about the ABI’s Pulse-Arc Welder
or Lampert Tools PUK 2 Spot Welding Machine.
I currently am using an ABI Tack II to tack pieces together before
assembly. The unit does great for all gold items but not very
successful when items are gold/silver or silver/silver. I am
interested primarily in using the arc welder to preassemble several
parts together so that I can come back and do all the soldering
without worrying that any of the parts shift. I would like to know
if anyone has been successful using the arc welder to work on
gold/silver items as well as how it does on permanent welds for
repair work next to heat sensitive stones.
Thanks in advance,
