New Toy!!MIG Welder!!

I got a new TOY for the restoration of my MINI ~MIG Welder!!
It's DC output from 30~80A,so it's very suitable for MINI panel welding.
But still modify for DUTY CYCLE,because the main transformer can generate very much superfluous heat,so I will add some cool fan or water cool system for it to increase it's work time!
