RDO Microwelder


#1

Hello All,

A question for those of you who are familiar with the RDO
microwelder. Is this type of welder capable of depositing or building
up metal? Such as for re-tipping or filling in voids.

All the best to everyone.

Filling voids - yes
Re-tipping I have not heard talk about it. Bill

The RDO is basically like the PUK 111 and PUK 2 but with more power
and a built in microscope. They are TIG spot welders, you can build
up metal and weld seams and re tip prongs with them but there is a
fairly steep learning curve. I have re-tipped prongs and filled
voids with my PUK 2. I have tried the RDO out at a trade show but not
in the shop. I was impressed with the power and liked the microscope.
Chris Ploof who posts here occasionally has one of the RDO units you
might contact him.

The last word from RDO is that they have found the response to their
welder under-whelming. They are considering canceling the item from
their product list. Bill
