fish56 I bought one of the 5600HT welders. Nice unit. Used it on a bunch of busted front end stuff on a beater 97 Toyota Corolla. Paid for itself the first time I used it.

BMM I dont know about the welders, but...which kind of plastic will make a large difference. For example, urethane welded properely works essentially like metal, the piece becomes one again.

Certain plastics (the damn name escapes me), polypropelene etc. 'greasy' ones need surface conditioner so the materials stick.

plastic welding

I have some plastic parts such as a grill to repair. Do these plastic welders actually work? Has anyone had any experience with them and what am i looking for when purchasing one? Thanks to anyone that can help me out.
