    Item #13901 Brand: Eastwood

    Details

    Now you can "spot weld" with your MIG welder...just add this Spot Welding Kit to your tool box! Use your MIG welder together with our Spot Welding Kit to produce professional spot welds without the need for a large resistance welder.
    • Duplicate full-penetration OE spot welds from one side with your existing MIG welder
    • No need to buy a resistant spot welder (about $250!) or fool with carbon arc rods
    • Spot Weld Pliers has forked jaws to secure the spot nozzle, offering full penetration on the back side of the weld
    • Spot Weld Nozzle has "leg extensions" to create the exact standoff distance required for spot welding of 20- and 18-gauge metals

    About Eastwood MIG Spot Weld Kit

    Until now, you’d spot-weld primarily by using a large resistance welder, but now you can use your MIG welder together with this Spot Welding Kit from Eastwood to achieve the same professional results.

    Spot welding is accomplished by clamping two panels together and fusing them with a number of sequentially-placed welds, rather than in a continuous bead, to hold the panels together. This kit is designed to be used with Eastwood’s welders as well as any other brand welder that utilizes a Tweco®-style MIG torch.

    The combination of the Spot Pliers and Spot Nozzle assures complete welds all the way through, and exact duplication of each spot weld.

    For 18-gauge steel, or if you're using a less-than-175-amp MIG welder, simply use the supplied double-ended HSS drill bit to drill a 0.187" pilot hole in the top panel only, and then complete the spot weld as usual. The pilot hole serves to assure complete and full penetration from the top to the bottom panel. This type of weld is far greater in strength than a simple resistant spot weld, but produces the exact OE look, with greater weld strength.

    Safety

    Follow all safety measures outlined in your welder's instruction manual. Do not touch nozzle or pliers while welding. Use caution when touching pliers since they may be hot and could cause burns. Always use a minimum Shade #10 welding helmet, welding gloves, long-sleeve shirt and pants.

    Would be a good product but it will not fit a 175 Hobart Mig welder. I really wanted to use tis spot welder on my mig welder and was dissapointed that it will not fit. After emailing tech line, I had to return product to Eastwood.

    Eastwood Note: This product clearly states it fits TWECO style nozzles. We do not advertise it fitting ALL MIG welders. Check your consumables before purchasing for compatibility.
