|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.|

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.

There are different welding rods for different plastics...
I would recommend the model 6 and go with these guys since they are quick on getting you consumables
Comes with a video and all you'll need.
heres a plastic weld thread' they will pay for themselfs in no time ... way fun!

I bought one from HF to repair a large trashcan,
well it worked fine & the weld held for about three weeks,till the trash truck picked it up & slammed
the Bee Jesus out of it, the weld broke, I think it's
okay for repair work that isn't going to be stressed
to severely like your grill.

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.
