Hello Gordy. Yes we have one of that type of welder where I work. And it does work quite well. We use it to repair some plastic storage containers which get rammed with lift trucks. It does take some practice to get really good with it as with any welding procedure. And it is paramount that you match the filler rod exactly with the base material or you will end up with inferior welds. Its hard to explain but it doesn't really "weld" the plastic, it kind of sticks the filler rod to each side of your work.

One thing I didn't know was that you could weld fiberglass with it. I'll have to give it a try sometime. In all honesty I've had pretty good luck just using some cloth and resin on that.

thanks toni, i had forgot about the cloth for fiberglass, it sounds from your description this is a tool i might get some use out of, and it's not very expensive. thanks again.
