    Mig 210 Spool gun problem fixed; READ

    I was having all kinds of erratic burn back and bead issues welding 1/4” AL. After checking everything, I took the gun apart and found the problem. The drive gear on the feeder motor was not tight...

    Hi Mark,

    I'm going to fool around with it a bit more. I'm having very good luck using .023 wire at 600ipm on my aluminum fixes and want to see about using parts of spot/stitch function to help...

    Imig 205//210

    When using my spool gun it seems the "spot and stitch" functions don't work. I was hoping to combine the two to improve my mig welding aluminum. Before I start troubleshooting, are these features...

    I have the "old 205" and yes, I was told it is the new 210. It's light enough to move around. If you play with the spot and stitch functions, you can really get some interesting combinations for...

    I'm using a 30amp breaker with 12 gauge to the outlet. In normal usage (30 seconds to 1 minute) the welder cord gets very slightly warm, but everything else is fine.

    Hi Mark,

    As in your pics. 5356 sucks compared to 4043. I had no luck running 5356 with my little 140e. However, the 4043 was a dream. Also, if you have the right setting you should get no soot. I believe...

    You need to help me out. Unless I'm missing something it takes less power to spray thinner wire. So, if I can spray 3/64" and .035 wire, the reason I can't spray .030" is because I can't get the wire...

    Whatever" the speed is..............It's just too slow.

    I can only guess you have the imig 200 "E". As the "economy" version Everlast put the same wire feeder (speed wise) as the 140E welder, which is about 330 to 360. The Power Imig 200 (without the E)...

    Make sure you are using 4043 and "NOT" 5356 wire. Though 5356 is stiffer, it's very, very hard to get 5356 wire to spray compared to 4043 with a machine of your size. And yes, I would open up the...
