ARO Welding Repair 850 mini

Post by Jt850 »

Folks, I just found this repair guide to welding the early mini bodies. Thought it might be useful to someone. I won't post all the pages, but this is what they look like. If anyone would like a full HQ PDF of the guide, just PM with an email address and I'll happily send off to you.

Spent many a year spot welding with that kit! heavy to use,
by the time I got round the roof of a mini van my arms ached.
Never seen a manual for it though.

I have one of those ARO welders in the shed, all complete with arms & one sided welder.

It rarely gets used though, I have always preferred MIG Button welds.
