    Banks need collateral for a personal loan.
    Corvettes not worth much today unless you own a L88.
    C4 worth $5 k only if you own a convertible like I do.

    Vintage Trans Am worth a Mint $$$$$.
    Not putting the title up !

    I have earned my living twenty years by welding,i have 4 plate and 4 pipe test with mig, tig and stick
    There is few good welders in youtube ,especially jody from weldingtipsandtricks.com
    You learn welding by doing it
    Testing difrent materials , settings and positions
    Thin stainless pipe with stick is challenge for me

    Anyone ever hear of or use CEBORA Welders ?
    Looks like its an Italian Company.
    You Tube Vids on it appear to be in Russian & I can not understand any.
    Looks like a few of them made it into the USA.
    Looks like they are huge in Europe Cebora.

    Found a Vintage Cebora TIG local.
    Guys says it still works & I can buy it for just a few hundred. $$$.
    Something is better than nothing to start off with for a TIG I am thinking.

    get the current owner to weld a couple 2x2 1/4" angle aluminum sections together edge to edge to form a (Z) with it, if it can do that buy it!

    He says it was used 3 weeks ago Grumpy.
    Sounds like Dual Voltage. He has been using at 110 VAC.
    Works nice on steel.
    Ok on aluminum.
    It's a DC only Tig.
    No AC.
    Aluminum I recall you need around 2 times the current to pool correct.
    Remember that with Ed race Fabbing his garage.
    Mainly steel use for me.
    No Present Turbo 1 off discharge piping to fab or custom intercoolers.
    I don't have the Sheer or sheet metal brake and big Bandsaw table to create like Ed has.
    What do you think ?
    Cebero Pocket Pulse TIG 100.
    Not much info online.
    Must be 25 -30 years old.

    Guys complained about the Torch head too.

    It's looking like I need to save up $2k Grumpy to get a decent used TIG I will not regret purchasing.

    Are You familiar with Miller Maxstar 200 welders ?
    Found a few online used.
    Some guys strip and selling just the welder. No pedal and no Torch head.
    Like what the Hay?

    Complete looks nice $2k asking price.

    Maxstar are they liquid cooled or air cooling ?

    TIG torches on most cheap machines are air cooled, this can and frequently does limit the duration between cool down periods required at higher amp levels
    a liquid cooled torch requires an additional coolant pump and reservoir of coolant (generally radiator fluid) generally a separate 110 volt pump in reservoir of coolant, and requires a TIG TORCH designed to be fluid cooled, most commercial coolant pumps run on a 110 volt pump with about a 2 gallon fluid capacity and generally are designed to sit on a welding car next too or under or over the TIG WELDER
    BTW the idiot in the video says you need to strictly limit coolant flow, thats basically WRONG, you want to limit PRESSURE but increases in volume at reasonable pressure helps increase cooling efficiency
