While visiting a customer today, he noticed the big assed Hobart in my trailer (I was on my way home up north). After telling him about it and blushingly mentioning my spare tire episode, he snapped his fingers and motioned me to follow him. In one of the back storage areas, was a mig welder with bottle and a huge spool of wire.
He told me he had used it for years doing car body work, but about 8 yrs ago, had gotten a really big Miller and stored this one, and it works as of the last time he used it. Did I want it?
Its marked Dan Mig 140/200. It has a full sized bottle of Gold 25? (no idea if there is any in it..didnt check), gauges etc though not a flow gauge. We wrestled it into my trailer and there is sits until morning (it was a 4 hour drive...yawn...).
This has some switches and knobs marked Stitch Welding and whatnot along with the usual wire feed and power pots, post purge IRRC etc. What the heck is Stitch Welding and how is it done? Does the machine start and stop the weld? There is a time knob...IRRC.
What do I set the gas flow for? 15psi? It appears to be .035 wire.
Up to this point, Ive only used flux core on a 110vt wire feed. Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated. The shield on the end of the torch is there, but for some reason it will now screw onto the end of the torch. It falls off. Whats it missing? Ill try the sheild from my 110 mig.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
