The Oxford MIGMAKER 180-1 is a single phase 180A step regulated MIG welder made by British welding machine manufacturer Oxford.  This entry level machine in the Oxford range is great for automotive work, sheet metal fabrication and DIY use.  Works from a 13A domestic plug for most applications.  The MIGMAKER range is their most popular model of their offering.

The Oxford MIGMAKER is made with a copper wound transformer, rugged switch gear, over rated rectifier and fan cooling all built into a strong 2mm steel chassis.  Preferred by some, a transformer based machine arguably provides very long life spans and great reliability.

* Note the input fuse size on single phase models is a result of Oxfords calculations & tests, it is possible to use any of these models on a lower fuse size at lower welding power. Oxford recomend always using a ‘D’ type circuit breaker to avoid intermittant tripping & in some instances you may experience intermittant tripping if using close to maximum settings. *The min KVA rating quoted is for up to 3/4 power output, to achieve max output we suggest increase KVA by 40%.

Why accept an imported machine when you can buy a top quality British made machine for a similar price?


Please note:  Oxford machines are built to order and may take 7 – 14 working days from order to be built and dispatched.  If you place an order online, one of sales team will be in touch to confirm delivery time scales.  Also note our returns policy for these machines on our terms and conditions page.
