Rated 3 out of 5 by from It LOOKS likes a great product, but doesn't seem to work with HF 90A welder I am a brand new welder, and this product looked PERFECT for my "replace the rocker panels" project, but it doesn't seem to work well for me. I just bought the HF 90A welder, and although it fits, the HF welder just doesn't seem to be able to work with this product. I spent a LOT of practice time to get it to work, and ended up getting much better results by not even using it. I do see some great potential, maybe the HF welder is just not the best 110V welder for this to shine (likely?) so maybe I will scrap the HF 90A and try the Eastwood 135 mig welder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fair 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice accessory and no guesswork I bought the 175 MIG and ordered this at the same time. I got a chance to use it a couple days ago on the 72 Jeepster Commando that I am rebuilding. I used it to spot weld the old hood latch holes with some 16 ga sheet metal as a backing and it worked great. I also used it on some holes in my grille and used a homemade copper backer that worked great. Glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with this I bought this in September to make my life easier in replacing the full rockers on both sides of my '72MGB-GT. I also bought the MIG135, although I also have a Clarke 100E with the appropriate Tweco style torch. The tool works just like they show in the video and for me has absolutely been worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to be more CLEAR I thought this was a No BRAINER just BUY IT put on torch. No where on this page does it say that it is torch specific. Would have figured it would come with adapters. Just guess I have to be true American and do what no other wont make it work. . Tell more when I get it going Have A great One

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to be more CLEAR This sounded like a no brainer BUY IT put on Torch. No where on this page does it say that it is torch specific.Just says BUY IT. All they need to do is create a adapter. The torches do not vary by much. Guess I will have to be a true Yankee and modify. But for 34.99 still a good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably works well. I had the same problem a few others have had. It won't fit my 2 year old Miller Matic. I am keeping it though. At least the clamp comes in handy. After I purchased this I found out Miller makes a spot weld nozzle so I'm going to get that one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The tip will fall apart The tip falls apart after about 20 spot welds. The center threaded portion is not attached properly and the heat will melt the tape they use to put it together. Great idea though, and works great for those first 20 spot welds.

I am going to spot weld the stake pockets to the bedsides, is 0.030 solid wire the right size the material is 16 gauge satin coat steel. Thanks

Asked by: mervski
Yes, 0.030" wire is the right one to use for that material. You could use smaller 0.023" wire also, but you'll have to turn up the wire speed in order to get the right amount of filler material into the weld.

I have your #13901 and use a Lincoln 3200 Welder.  I practicing on 22 ga metal.  What should be the voltage and wire speed settings on the 3200 

Asked by: Stlcard12
This is something you will have to experiment with because every welder is going to be different, if only slightly. Grab a scrap piece of metal and try to hit one spot on a similar setting as you would if you were welding without the spot weld kit. Pay close attention to the weld and adjust as needed.

Asked by: ww427
Unfortunately we do not have one at this time. This kit will fit a thread-on Tweco-style torch only.

  • Duplicate full-penetration OE spot welds from one side with your existing MIG welder

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.
