I got a millermatic 175 today, after carefull search , i did not
find a fluxcore style nozzle for the miller M10 gun
I was accustomed to Lincolns little plastic nozzle when flux was in
use , it did cover the gas discharge ports and gave a sligthly better
view of the puddle in tight places, i liked it.
what does miller reccomend ? there is nothing in their web page undr
so my question is: does such slim nozzle exist for this M10 gun?.
I have a HH175 which has a H10 gun. It is my understanding that the H10 is
the same gun as the M10. It was discussed on the Hobart site and the factory
guys said that there was no such nozzle available. I use mine with the
nozzle removed when welding with flux-core. Be aware that the metal parts
exposed when you remove the nozzle are electrically hot when you pull the
trigger. It is a lot easier to weld with the nozzle off. You can see really
well what the puddle is doing. Just don't touch the side of the tip against
any part that is conductive. I also spray the contact tip with nozzle spray
once in a while to keep any spatter from sticking to the end of the gun.
arrrggg....... red has it, blue don't.....I will rig something up to
protect the gas discharge ports. and make it "cold"
alright next topic (just trying to gather some info here. )
miller gas regulator has no knob to adjust pressure, instead it has a
plain round head bolt (can you say / EL CHEAP-O?)
my understanding that with any regulator , when not used, regulator
spring tension should be released. Even thou most people or shops
don't do it.
still it would be nice to be able to adjust the regulator by hand not
with a screwdriver. i will be welding up a knob or some sort.
I am not bashing miller just writing about my first impression.
