Question about Welding Tools
Probably the gun housing it's missing the inlet guide to the gun, there are two types of inlet (outlet if you see it that is located after the drive rolls) guides: one is made out of plastic and the second is made out of steel tubing (this one is more common on the 250 A machines). Just to make sure that you have one, take the gun out of the hosing and check that inside you have this plastic (or steel) tubing (about 4-6 inches long don't remember exactly), if don't; the go to your nearest welding shop and buy one. You might want to talk to your sales rep about this problem, it's real easy to fix.
Also you may consider check that you are using the same size drive rolls .8 (.030) as the SS wire in use.
And yes, it is ok to swap different types of wires with same gun liner. Just make sure is the right diameter.
