Eastwood MIG Spot Weld Kit is rated 4.12280701754386 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not recommend So I took my nozzle off and the Spot Weld Nozzle went on smooth. Problem was that it kept going. Since it never got snug, I decided to take it off. The nozzle came off, but the core with the threads stayed on my welder. Not sure what to do with it since I can't weld the core in place and nothing comes to mind of some sort of an epoxy that can handle the temperature the nozzle reaches. If you are able to weld, you shouldn't waste your money. I just thought it would be convenient and may even put down a slightly cleaner weld for a less grinding on bigger jobs where I have a couple dozen or so welds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works very well This kit allows you to run a very consistent set of plug welds. I would essentially set the welder up for your metal, then line up the tip, and pull the trigger for about a the count of three. Nice clean welds with good penetration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good I put this to the test, it works very good under perfect condition, clean medal, good ground, Lincoln 180 220v, the medal has to have a tight fit, meaning clamped together, it is not forgiving will not weld the slightest gap they recommend a set of pliers for spot welding, but in the real world we are not always welding an inch wide strip of medal and for us body guys never, however I did punch holes in a piece and use it as a plug weld and it did very well,, would I recommend this product, YES, it does what it says it will do, we’ll see more when I’m tryin to spot weld my floor broads in, I’m giving this a B+ so far

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 1 out of 5 by from doesn't work with my eastwood welder I'm afraid I won't get the chance to find out how well this product works as it will not work with the mig250 eastwood welder that I bought.Its supposed to work with any eastwood welder. not happy.

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 2 out of 5 by from Quality Not There The acual performance of the nozzle was fine, with the exception that the inner core (the threaded portion) came out of the nozzle. Tried to epoxy it back in - nothing doing. I looked at other reviews, this is not an uncommon occurrence.

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.

Will this work with flux core wire as well?

Asked by: Guardm
This will work with flux core as well. It may just be a little more of a challenge since flux burns hotter.

Does this nozzle fit the tweco fusion 180 might gun. Hot max nozzle does not fit.

Asked by: Ga49945
We have never tested with that exact torch. We do know it fits most thread on Tweco style torches.

Can this be used to make welds when doing stitch welds on a patch panel

Asked by: Ultpainter
This tool will be the best way to make a stitch weld since you cannot see exactly where the weld is at.

Do you have to use solid core wire and argon or can you use flux core with this?

Asked by: Swankster
You can use either flux core or solid core with gas. However, you won't have as much control over heat and penetration with the flux core. For the best results, use solid with shielding gas.

so you have to drill a hole for each spot on the top piece of metal to get a spot weld correct?

Asked by: jake89
It is recommended to drill a hole in the top piece of metal when using a 110V machine. When using a 220V machine, drilling a hole is not needed.

Your spot weld kit shows two drill bits - what are they used for?

Asked by: howie51
When welding with a 110V machine, it is recommended to drill through the top piece of metal and when through the hole. On a 220V machine, you do not need to drill the hole in the top piece of metal.

Will this spot welding system work with aluminum light gage panels?

Asked by: Nosnits
Yes, it will work with nearly any thickness of metal. You will just have to adjust the power output of the welder to match the metal thickness.

About 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.
