    And then get the pedal to go with it.

    Done.
    thanks mate. A newb question. im assuming pedals are brand/model specific? i did some googling but i can't seem to find a pedal that matches that exact model of welder?

      Pedals aren't terribly specific, you can get generic ones with adapters. But 99.9% of the time it is just easier to get a matching one.

        I bought one of these package deals https://www.hampdon.com.au/bossweld-...240v-acdc-foot and I am very happy with the machine so far and it has done a lot or welding on my project which has mainly been plain old DC welding but I have played with the AC a bit in preparation for the fuel tank build, and having the "pulse" function is very handy for thin material.

        I think for the money it is a good deal considering what you get for your money which includes a foot pedal and decent 17 series torch that has amp control thumb wheel if you don't want to use the pedal.
        Like nearly all welders the components come from China but are assembled in OZ and distributed by https://dynaweld.com.au/

          That does look like a good kit. Bunnings was bringing in BossWeld for a while, and had it for $989 (https://performanceforums.com/forums...70#post6408170). I think its still available as a special order, but not sure on the pricing.

          Interesting to hear that it is decent. Would be a good starter.

            I looked at all of the other brands in my price range and I was going to go with a Unimig AC/DC Tig as I have a Unimig Viper Mig welder which does an OK job, but on balance the Bossweld deal was
            too good to ignore, and it is better than my abilities.
            I have used it to do a lot of DC welding on plain steel, a bit of aluminium welding and some silicon bronze tig brazing.

              Interesting. I do want to start doing bad TIG welds at some point.

                As mentioned above. Though I always prefer the matching brand. It'd be this or similar:

                  thanks mate and to everyone that has chimed in. Im going to see what deal total tools can do for me on the unit this bloke /\ /\ suggested, a pedal + a small table.
