Rediculous priceisnt it? I bought one - had to replace the two castor wheels with beefier ones after a few weeks though.

My welder fitted on the bottom shelf after I’d taken the wheels and handle off.

I like how the bottle chain keeps the welder perfectly horizontal!

Or is that just on Android?

Here's an interesting delivery from ScimJim;
Perhaps he's moved house, or maybe it got mixed in with a batch of Slice 286. :shock:
