spot welder lending (eu / uk)

k in order to revive the thread.

sadly around 3 month ago the guy who borrowed the welder managed to short the xt90 and ruined the welder.
i managed to nab another flipsky welder for a good price.
sadly it doesnt have lipos

so some new rules (yay)

1 - when you get the welder you are responsible i dont care if it was an accident or the shipping companies fault. its your problem to sort out.

2 - the cost will be shipping + £15 that will go into a fund to buy parts for it when necessary (lipos, good tips, balance charger, etc…) if you really cant afford £15 you can get off without.

3 - please only ask for the welder once your actually ready to weld. im gonna put a cap of 2 weeks as the max time you can hold it unless provable unusual circumstances arrive which stop you from completing your battery.

4 - im going to make a wiki post to sign up for it. if your name isnt there you havent signed up.

i may add more points in the future

That is really generous my dude, I like that Brotherhood of the traveling welder I won’t be able to enjoy that but is great offer for UK people. You guys could add leftover supplies everytime you ship it

in terms of from the uk to eu i agree its gonna be an issue to do so.

if someone is interested though could be super useful

well the first taker is @Kev
posting here just as insurance in case something goes wrong and if anyone can vouch for him it would be super useful.
it is going to germany so if anyone in the eu wants to take it after go ahead and that way it can just be paying customs once when it comes back in

thank you all

You can’t legally ship batterys from uk to germany. If it goes on an airplane it goes through an xray and they will find it…

ups offer to do it? so i assumed so
also gls do it via ground shipping

otherwise i guess i can ship without

call them and ask.

I did that and no one would ship from germany to uk :man_shrugging:t2:

ah ok

tinp123 has sent a couple batteries from croatia to uk with gls and i sent one to him with ups so i thought so
i will contact them and ask but they have a clear button on their site asking whether it contains lithium batteries

Yeah if this option is still there I’d like to take it up (not urgent) after @meeezy, I’m based in Ireland so hopefully not too much hassle. Happy to pay a rental fee/buy a couple beers

well my welder managed to kill itself (the guy who i lent it to said it was his fault (not the welders) and he is paying for it to be returned to sequere to have it fixed)
i will update once i get. my kweld may be up for a quick use if you are desperate.

pm me

ahhh shite, may he rest in peace. Nah don’t worry about it, I might buy a used one on ebay and resell if I have the cash before the sequere comes back - cheers anyway. Please let me/us know if it comes back though and hope you’re recovered from that masochistic bike trip last week

putting this here in case it’s relevant to others but I can just move to PMs if that’s easier.

sounds good, let me know when you have the welder to send on to me but I’m not in a rush. I have the cells sitting on a shelf and will order order the nickel tabs from a place that takes a couple of days to deliver, should still definitely be ahead of the arrival of the welder.

Edit: moving over to/filling in the wiki now
