MIG welder inquiry

any one ever heard of a S.A.M. welder?

Jo Jo? its supposed to be a canadian brand

it has NO heat control, wire speed control on teh mig gun, 110V 120 amp output
gas sheild

would it be possible to ad a current controlling device?

Im unsure how it would be welding THIN sheetmetal on max output?

its 15 miles away in a guys storage, and its cheap so Im tempted..

thanks

Re: MIG welder inquiry

ok, lets try this question.

Is it important to have variable output on a 120 amp MIG welder?
some of you guys outthere who own MIG machines, do you HAVE to reduce the current to weld thin stuff ( body work)?

thanks

Re: MIG welder inquiry

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] well, if you don't reduce the current, the wire will just burn through the material, and you will never reach the point where you have the correct length of wire between the nozzle and the puddle. The Miller I use has the major heat range plug-ins, and the wire speed vernier dial along with that.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I'll be checking this tomorrow with the sultan of sparks at Modesto Welding Products, purveyor of supplies to all kinds of industries.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: MIG welder inquiry

We use the Miller 250 at work to tig weld thin stuff. We weld .035 (stainless) all the time and can weld even smaller stuff if need be. We have a watch at work that one of the guys welded the back on to it. About 1/32" weld all the way around, sweet!

Re: MIG welder inquiry

Welding a watch? Now thats talented welding. I bet i could weld it, but it would be an unrecognizable puddle of metal when I was done. I fought all day welding repairs to my YJ corners. Its good thing I dont have to weld for a living.

If at first you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again.
