Application Tips

Weld Aluminum with a Spool Gun

Many cars and trucks have aluminum parts, or you may need to weld aluminum for a metal fabrication project, and with a spool gun you can weld 14-gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. Quickly and easily connect or remove it as needed for working on different parts and panels. The spool gun is sold separately or you can save money when you buy it together with the Eastwood MIG 180 here.

Eastwood MIG 180 Welder

All-Around Steel and Aluminum MIG Welder

The MIG 180 comes complete (except for the gas cylinder) and is ready to weld 24 gauge to 5/16-inch mild steel and stainless. Connect the spool gun and you can also weld 14 gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. With a 30 to 180 amp welding range, this high-quality MIG welding machine has a 30 percent duty cycle at 180 amps and a 60 percent duty cycle at 65 amps, giving you the power needed for tough projects.

The metal drive motor feeds the wire smoothly for the best operation and the infinitely adjustable wire speed and heat settings allows you to precisely control the machine. If you don't have a gas bottle, or are away from your shop, use the flux core wire for your welding project. Plus the ability to connect to either 240 or 120 volts makes this an incredibly versatile machine for any garage.

Precision Drive Motor

The drive roller mechanism, which is the heart of any MIG welder, is designed to our high specifications and delivers flawless wire feed without skipping or slipping on the wire. That's why the MIG 180 has a quality METAL drive motor. This means you'll get a great puddle and solid welds without having to go back and "touch up" spots. Beware of other units with much lower quality equipment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2nd Eastwood mig!! I've only used it once, but it welds fine! I bought it to replace my Eastwood Mig 135, for a little bit more power. Loved my 135 though, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood from here on out If you think you might be interested you have thought to long Best Buy in years
Date published: 2021-09-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 180 MIG I have used the welder with shield gas and the .030 wire that came with the machine to check function and I am very pleased. I’ve used both 110v and 220v input and welded 20 gauge sheet metal up to the 5/16” the machine is advertised to handle. Adjustment is easy, welding is very smooth and controllable and appropriate penetration was achievable at every thickness. I have owned various Millermatics over the years and I have to say that if this machine proves as reliable as those it will be one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.
