Thread: Mig 15 consumables?

  1. Default Mig 15 consumables?

    I?m about to pull the trigger and order my first Everlast. I?m probably going to buy the I-Mig 200. My biggest hold back is getting mig consumables. I?m not new to welding, mostly stick, but I?ve got very little experience mig welding. So I?m expecting to make mistakes and bugger things up. Their is a local mom and pop shop well about 30 min away. The people running the registers are clueless and the old man that owns the store is hardly available. I could drive an hour to an airgas but when I call them on the phone for some reason lately they act clueless. My understanding is these are TWECO style mig guns. Ok great I know they sell TWECO at the places I shop. Which TWECO parts are compatible with the MIG 15? Also I?ve read that harbor freight tips and nozzles are compatible. Is this true. Harbor freight is a 5 minute walk from my house. I?m not big on HF welding stuff but if I can buy tips and nozzles it would be nice to know. If I needed something and did not have an hour to go get it.

    The 15 series gun is one of the most widely sold guns in the world. This is a Binzel/Trafimet series of gun...presumably Binzel originally made it. But the European patent system being what it is, nothing is hardly ever many companies make this gun.

    Miller has even used this gun on their cricket and side kick series. TSC has sold units with this gun on it. Then Harbor Freight, and NOrthern tool have sold this gun, as well as some of the tool Truck brands. Other brands include, Century, Solar, HTP, Daytona, Clarke (some models), Dan MIG, etc. and many more, some you may have heard of, some were a flash in the pan.

    Now with that said, you should be able to walk into any Harbor Freight or Northern Tool and get them off the shelf. Or order them anywhere online.

    The tips themselves interchange with TWECO 11 series tips. Just add the nominal size after the 11 and a dash i.e. .035" = 11-35. Add H for heavy duty, or A for aluminum after the number if you want.
