Something different. Advertised on the local Craigslist but I've never heard of of this brand before. Just posted this as a matter of interest...

Yeah, I assumed they were European. Apparently not a brand that was imported to North America; at least not in great numbers. Had never seen or heard of them till now...

The original small inverter stick welder sold by Miller (140 amp 120/240vac) was a Fornius, before the came out with their own design (150 amp). I had 2 of them, later traded in on the Maxstar 200, I bought

I have heard of them and seen pics of them before but have never seen one in person.

The new Fronius are quite well regarded and are quite expensive, they do not look like that anymore. They are sold in OZ as well.

Yeah, I have never tried a Fronius but they are supposed to be a high end machine.
