Is there the possibility that the UK suppliers graft a new Euro compatible fitting onto the power cable or even make their own PC ?

Thus the sloppy silver soldering job . I've had good service from TPS Weld Tec in UK ; keithp@tpsweldtech.com

As mentioned, I emailed CK Worldwide and they have coordinated with Rapid Welding to get me a replacement unit.

Unfortunately, Rapid Welding was out of stock with the flex head version, so they took a rigid head version and fitted a replacement flexi head, leaving the rigid head in the box for me as a compliment.

In my eyes, very good service from both CK Worldwide and Rapid Welding and I'll be a rigid head richer from all this, so I'm a happy Rapid Welding/CK Worldwide customer 8-)

I'm glad you have it all sorted - though I do rather believe because you went to CK direct they told Rapid how is was going to go down to protect their product reputation - don't hold your breath on them doing it without protest themselves - but all is sorted in the end so good result.
