I've recently bought an SIP Tig 160 AC/DC martyn, it's a good bit of kit,
but it needs serious input current. Not for actual welding, but to charge up
the ruddy big bank of capacitors that are inside it. Instantaneous startup
current is 60A, but only instantaneous. Mine runs through a 32A plug/socket
(big blue) and a 40A breaker just fine, but it's a motor-rated breaker that
can cope with the very short period of surge current on startup. One day
I'll get to grips with it and stop melting ally into nice round puddles!
