Recall: Vaper 90 Amp Wire Feed Welder

July 14th, 2010 by Jim German Leave a reply »

Star Asia USA has issued a recall on the Vaper 90 Amp flux wire feed welder.  The welder, model 51181 was mislabeled as having a cold contactor on the torch.  Without this feature an arc begins immediately on contact, which if you aren’t expecting can cause burns or a fire.  The welder was sold at Pep Boys and Autozone over the last 4 years.  If you have one of these welders you can call customer service at (800) 386-0191, and return it for a full refund.
