Question about Welding Tools

2 Answers

Have a Millermatic 200 wire welder! s/n:JJ048290!

Problem! When you go to touch the metal you are about to weld, the wire wouldn't even spark! Welder don't have the right hum to it either when turned on and when you contact the metal with the wire coming out the gun you don't have that contact sound or click to the machine! Checked the fuse's in the fuse box and they are ok! You can hear the machine when you first turn the switch on or off on the panel, but it just don't have the right sound to it like it did before!

    Couple of items to check out: What size (amps)set is it. Single phase or three phase: All connections are tight: the Earth is in good condition: plates to be welded are clean: contact tip-rollers and liner is all the same sizes.Check on the front panel for a switch indicating Spot "......." or Stitch "--------" set these to off.

    ; Wire feed rollers turn when the trigger is pulled: The torch assembly is good condition. let's know how this goes

+1 a-tripod. That's the first thing that came to mind when I read it! Can't forget the ground clamp. Or, nod your hood down when it's layin' on the bench!

The problem is your project is not grounded, attach the grounding cable from your welder to your project your welding.

Where can I get spares for stramm welder


I just did some serious searching to answer your question, and have come to the conclusion that you will need to start in South Africa for your answers.
South Africa was the only place I found any names of such a machine.
God bless your efforts.

My Dremel Versatip wont melt the solder - it gets hot, as I touched it to a piece of paper and it burned through, but why wont the solder melt?


Christina, It's probably dirty, and dirt is lousy for transferring the heat from the tip to the solder. With the iron hot, wipe it on a wet rag. This should immediately remove the black crud and make the tip shiny. Keep a wet rag handy to do this often if you are soldering for more than a couple of minutes. If the crud is too bad, you can use a bit of soldering flux on the tip, then the wet rag. If that doesn't work, you can file the tip (easiest when it's cool) until you have copper showing all around the tip. Please vote if you found this helpful. Good luck, Al K
