    Eastwood MIG Welder 175 Amp with Spool Gun

    Product Review (submitted on March 29, 2013):

    I just recieved my welder yesterday. Amazed at how fast I got it btw. My immediate problem I'm having before even using it for the first ime is hooking up the sheilding gas. I have it on a MIG cart and I have the big bottle of gas that extends over the top of the welder. The gas inlet is directly in the center and towards the top of the machine. There is only about an inch of clearance between tth two. Found a 90 degree brass plumbing fititing but was told by a friend that works at a welding supply (BOC) that it's not compatible. So I ordered on from them for another $16.00 and they don't know when I'll get it. For now I guess I'll just set the bottle next to the unit so I can play with it. My previous welder had ia nipple with a plastic hose and clamp near the bottom amd on the left. You guys got a solution to this?
