There is lots of ways to do it.You can use the spoolgun tap,and switch it to the spoolgun setting to kill the drive motor.I hooked up a Hobart 2210 feeder to my 300 powermig the same way.Just to see if it works.It does fine.You can also pull the power off the wall for the extra feeder if needed,and only use the Machines closing contacts.Your main gun will still be live,so watch where you set the thing.
