Default Re: Welcome To The Welding & Metalworking Forum

A neighbor has one that is also 110 and I think about the same amp like my Hobart 130, theirs is a Miller. The Hobart of mine actually uses parts from Miller as they have some connection on the smaller welders. License to use design or something. I got a bigger spool than what the machine will run unless you get the adapter. I told the guys at AirGas that it was Hobart and the part that came is Miller anyway.

One thing I do when putting it away I cover all the gas connectors so they don't get scratched. I make a large coil around the welder with the hose so as not to kink.

I'm will get guidance from the neighbor watch an see and then use my welder experiment on scrap first. It was about two years ago took the two quick classes on MIG an TIG, then only used the TIG at the shop for about 5 months. I'll get pic when I get something done and post.
