Are you concerned about a refund, because this could be an issue where the Consumer Guarantees Act may apply. If you were sold something like this with a representation that it could do particular welding jobs, but it cannot do so, then you are entitled to return the item and have either your money back or a replacement. So if the machine is not fit for purpose, which is what you are saying, then they must do so
