I just acquired a Century Powrmate 100 mig welder and while thinking about the roll-around cart I need to make for it, I was wondering if it would work to mount the CO2 bottle in more or less of an horizontal direction instead of vertically, in the interest of lowering the center of gravity and also making its foot print a bit smaller by having it slung under the machine somehow rather than standing behind it. I realize that I need a supply of CO2 *gas* to the solenoid, but was thinking that if maybe the valve is pointing up and the bottle was slightly angled up from the horizontal that that might work - anyone happen to know, or has tried this?
Another question: it appears that wire spools are mounted horizontally and I'm not sure if I need an adapter to mount a 10 lb. spool with (it came with a rusty 2 lb. one), in order to have a straight shot to the wire-feed mechanism. I've looked all over for a manual for it but so far have only come up with a parts list/diagram.
Thanks in advance for any help.
