Question about Hobart Handler 140 Mig Welder
Posted by Anonymous on
First there is a overload for the drive motor incase the welding wire gets jammed. I've had one of these for a number of years and only recently understood the markings on the drive wheels. When the wheel is installed, the markings for the wire size is for the wire you're using. In other words, the marking is towards you but is indicating the size for the rear groove. For years, I looked at the numbers and assumed that they were for the groove closest to the numbers. I had no problem with solid wire, but with flux core all kinds of trouble. So, make sure you have the right groove for the wire size. Second make sure there are no kinks in your hose. Make sure your contact tips in the gun are the right size for your wire and in good condition A person has e a tendacy to make ther drive wheels tighter when the feed slips, this can cause problems for the flux core wire if the correct drive wheel is not selected.
