- Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/spool gun
What amp generator would I need to run this welder
What material are the drive rollers made of?
Can a stick welding torch be connected to the mig 175?
O30 wire on the spool gun keeps burning back up into the tip. The spool sounds like its pulling hard. Any quick fixes?
can this welder run with flux core for the mig gun and the spool gun
It seems that every bit of info I've read and heard on videos say that Helium is to be used as the shielding gas for welding aluminum. I don't see this mentioned in this post for the MIG 175. Is the 75/25 mix workable with the spool gun?
Is this an inverter or transformer welder?
I just purchased the MIG 175 welder and would like to know if 208 VAC is alright to connect as the specification shows 210-240 VAC
