- Eastwood MIG Welder 175 Amp with Spool Gun
Great welder! Can I weld thicker aluminum (say 3/8") w/ this machine and what would I expect as problems - Strength or Technical? Thanks!
Can you provide the voltage output for each letter on the dial? A= ?, B=? , C=?, and so on.. Thanks...Rob
When you are using the spool gun, is the machine welding with ac or dc voltage and how does the weld compare to an aluminum TIG weld ?
What is the best gas to use for sheilding and do need to us gas with the spool gun
Does the MIG 175 have a built in safety system to prevent overheating when the Duty cycle is met or is it up to the operator to make sure that he doesn't exceed the limit? Also if it has 30% duty cycle at 130 amps does that mean it has 60% at 65 amps?
what solid core wire sizes work with the EastWood 175 , as the specs say .030, but the guide on the flip up cover allow for 0.35.
what is the length of input power cord?
Can I run a new 50 amp breaker and it still be OK without over stressing the internals?
