    I had to post this, thought of a couple of guy’s here when I saw the video. @thedude306 and @theamcguy this is right up y’all’s alley. I want one, and I don’t do metal working.

    Neat unit. I want one too.

    Surprised you don’t need to wear a welding helmet while using.

    Heck Yea Sven!!! I want one too. It’s very cool. I wonder if the weld is as strong as any other structural weld?

    That’s a crazy little welder for sure! I wonder how it works with no shielding gas, maybe the alcohol mix? And no compressed air for the plasma cutter, at least not that they mentioned? I don’t really need one, i’ve got a mig, a tig and oxy acetylene, but just the weird factor makes me want one!

    Sven, Thank you for posting the video. Looks like a neat tool for sure. Have to look for this when it gets released. Interesting concept to use alcohol and water.

    Looks like a versatile little welder/cutter. Like Bill said interesting using alcohol and water.

    Looks like a nice little unit. If I did more metalwork, I think I would seriously consider it.

    From what I understand for cutting, you only need water. Welding you need the rubbing alcohol and water. It is a slick system for sure and seems easy enough to use. I think that it is nice not having to worry about shielding gasses, or anything else to make it work. Just run down to the local grocery store and grab the supplies. I would think that the savings there would pay off the machine in a hurry.

    I forgot to mention that it will weld copper, stainless, aluminum, steel, and also do brazing. And you don’t need a face shield. I really like this system.

    That is the big thing right there, no more trips to the welding supply store for gas and saving on the price of the bottle the gas comes in. Those bottles are several hundred dollars just for the bottle let alone the gas.

    This is one nice cutter/welder. I am not a metal worker, but I would definitely get if I had some extra money. A real multi-purpose unit.

    Here’s a link to the site for those interested.

    http://www.multiplaz.com/index

    Reading the site, I just saw this. This thing is incredible.

    “Multiplaz 3500 can cut any metal, including high-alloy and stainless steel that can not be cut with oxygen cutting. Cutting ceramic tiles, quartz glass, bricks, concrete and other non-flammable materials is another unique feature of the Multiplaz 3500.”

    That reminds me, I need to get my MIG bottle filled. I can hardly wait to see what that costs. Like everything else it’s been on a steady climb.

    Really nice outfit. I don’t do enough metal work to justify it. I would like one though.

    Did you see the part that you can cut other materials with it as well?

    #366355

    When you factor in the costs of the individual machines needed to provide the same functions as this (MIG, TIG, stick welder, Plasma cutter), the $2000 cost is a drop in the bucket.

    You’d have to check the penetration level against the machine that its’s trying to replace, but from what you see here, it looks like a sure winner. The smart calibration feature, based on your supply voltage is a nice touch!!

    I was wondering about the quality of welds as well, but as long as you get some penetration, it should be fine for most home built projects. It looks like most of the welding must be done tig style, using the torch for heat and holding the filler in the other hand

    $ 2000.00, a little steep, seeing how it’s not gas powered…
