This ultra-lightweight and portable ARC TIG/MMA inverter welder from Machine Mart is ideal for both automotive and general repairs.

The efficient inverter technology utilises a high switching frequency that typically allows the welder to be less bulky and better controlled than traditional non-invertor transformer-type welders.

A clear digital display shows the variable output current while there is a thermal overload cut-out and LED indicator. Other features include Hot Start, Anti Stick and Arc-Force.

The best-selling AT165 also utilises power factor correction for increased efficiency, which allows the welder to be powered from a domestic 13A supply.

On most modern power conversions, the original distributor is redundant and can be removed.


However, on the Pinto and Cosworth YB engines, the distributor cannot be completely removed unless a dry sump oil system is installed, because the original type of oil pump uses the drive provided by the distributor.

This new compact Distributor Delete Unit from Burton Power provides a neat and easily installed solution to drive the oil pump.

Order the Distributor Delete Unit as part number FT297 at £120.00 (inc VAT).

Readers often ask whatever happened to the De Havilland Motor Company. Until this week, I had no answer, but it appears that DHC boss Terry Groves has reappeared as Newgrove Automotive, but is still based in Suffolk.

The company specialises in classic car restoration (they’ve just recommissioned a Ferrari 308 and made a glorious job of it) race preparation and custom builds, while they are also working on a brand-new kit.

It’s called the Newgrove LMR1 and although the donor vehicle has yet to be announced and the company is keeping details close to their chests, but Terry did reveal that power More >


Instead of storing fasteners in cups or sandwich bags and relying on memory to remember which bolt belongs to what part, Boltster organisers take the guesswork out of keeping fasteners for a job organised in one place. They are made from high-strength silicone that is chemical-resistant and heat-resistant up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Summit Racing carries three styles of Boltster organisers. They’re backed by a one-year limited warranty.

The Original Boltster is a flexible mat with 765 holes to organise fasteners in any configuration you need. The main holes can hold bolts as small as M7 and as large as M17.
