    Your local steel merchant/sales should be able to supply you with the right size copper to make new tips from. Easily done, I made new tips for my old boss before I left his employ.
    Do you have any different shaped jaw extensions as well?

    The tips themselves are made from a specialist material (I'll hunt for the website we bought them from) but the actual copper arms coming out of the machine I made out of copper supplied by a steel merchant. 7yrs later they're still going strong.

    It's highly likely Machine Mart will sell tips for the welder too, although I haven't checked (I'm lazy )

    the arms&electrodes are made out of chromium zirconium copper and not 'normal' copper which is to soft and not hard wearing,thats why thay so pricey,when&how long do you need 'othere types off arms&electrodes? as i have a sealey spot welder inc a full set+ of arms etc,which i may be selling off (all together no spliting)but it wont be 50!
