    My welder is a three phase SCR controlled "inverter" and it's 26 years old. I replaced the catalytic capacitors in it and it still runs fine. That's why I prefer the old welders, they last.

    It's a sad development to see all these companies getting bought up and made part of the same. Diversity in design and in the market place is being lost.
