The KC Welder Pro has an 80 Watt element, flat tip and a 3/16 in. hole in tip for repair rod insertion. Includes a selection of Hobie color welding rods. Fix holes and cracks or customize polyethylene products. Insert the rod into the tip and place against the product to be welded. The tip heats the plastic surface and the rod. As the materials melt, move the tip along the repair area while pushing the rod into the tip to fill the repair area with new plastic material. Plug small holes after moving accessories. Rebuild keels after excessive wear from dragging.
Product works as advertised. Never thought I would need one, but it does the job nicely.
No specific directions included.....applied the weld.....and the kayak still leaks....not satisfied at all.....seems like a waste of money...was there another step that we were supposed to take before the weld?
KC Welder Pro worked great on my old Hobie, there was a crack in the drive well. You need to make sure that you are very, very careful in this area, not alot of room to work with or around. The tool gets very hot quick, so you need to really take your time. It would help if the temp could be controlled so not to burn the product. But all in all works and does the job.
The KC welder worked great fixing my new kayak which a small hole and scratches. The welder heats up in a few minutes and is ready to use. The heat is even and made making my repairs very easy. I would recommend using the KC welder to make all your repairs to your kayak.
