The last time I did any “plastic welding” it was with one of those kiddie construction kits that included a “welding gun” that spun plastic rods quickly to generate heat. Wow — that sounds really dangerous now that I say it to you, though at the time it made perfect sense.
So have you used one of these “real” plastic welders? Let us know about it in comments.
