- Eastwood 175 Amp MIG Welder w/spool gun
I plan to build an exhaust system using 304 stainless tubing, and possibly mufflers made of 409. What shielding gas is recommended? And wire type? The tubing will be 16 gauge.
Great welder and I need to buy a different extension cord than the one I have.It is a 30 ft 220v 50amp 8gauge, seems a bit overkill. I would like a 50 ft or maybe as short as a 25ft. What are the minimums (amps&gauge) for either respectively?
I have just purchused the MiG 175 and getting my garage situated before it arrives. I am running a dedicated 230v receptacle for this machine and maybe i have overlook it in the specs but just wondering what amp breaker this machine is required to run on?
I have the 175 but haven' gotten to play with it yet. But I have a clutch arm from a 1954 Chevy that has worn a groove in the push rod hole. The arm is a 1/4" thick steel. Can I weld up the deformity, and dress it up?

Under the settings chart for this welder 1/4" aluminum is blanked out with dashes, ---, however the specs on the machine say it will weld up to 1/4" aluminum and comes with a spool gun. Which is correct, the stated specs or the Chart? Thanks.
I have the Eastwood tig200 and it comes with the 220 to 110 converter now my question is can I use that 220 to 110 converter on this mig175
It looks like the drive has been updated to metal instead of plastic, is this correct?
