    I am in search of a Uniweld (or equivalent) auto welder for vinyl.

    And for those of you who will remind me that I just sold mind (I know...I know)

    How much welding do you do Barry to justify that cost?
    We only use a machine like that if we do something like a gymnasium which was years ago and then we borrowed the welder

    Many do not understand the value of equipment.

    Fair enough Barry
    I have welded about 40 to 60 feet this week with the longest weld about 9 feet in two different rooms along with about 15 feet along the top of the cove where it joins the wall vinyl on another job

    Barry, just a suggestion, why don't you write up an instructional video (or pics) of what to look for in a bad weld. Pointer on HOW to achieve a good weld would be nice too.

    Lots of good videos on youtube on how to weld. Most are right on just not enough emphasis on starting with a well made seam.

    I would think consistency, less fatigue factors would be its attributes, definitely large amounts of linear footage is an advantage, and more money.

    After all the pros, I’d like to know it’s cons, where/what it’s not good for, how you can modify if needed. Does it have a digital temp. welder?

    High price equipment is a deterrent for the competition and brings you to get the job.
