I told him I am a technician not a miracle worker but I will check it out and see what I can do.
I checked the machine very carefully and I did not see any damage to the boards but it seems like the damage was done to the body of the machine inside and outside.
The main power button was destroyed and I was hoping that replacing this part would bring the machine back to life;
these are just thoughts so I decided to replace the power button and give it a try after I fully inspect the main board of the welding machine.
The main and the power board were intact, a few screws missing here and there but to me it was ok to replace the broken power button and give a test.
To my surprise, the voltage readings were there and I took it next door to my brother to check it out. It was working according to specs.
