I usually TIG weld aluminum, but I wanted to weld thicker/larger pieces faster. To MIG weld aluminum requires spray transfer, and 200 amps is about the bottom end for thicker pieces. The Hobart 210 MVP with the addition of this SpoolRunner 100 spool gun welds 1/4 inch aluminum like lightning! I can weld in a 1/4 of the time of TIG. No stack of dimes look, but nice smooth fully penetrated welds.

Now I can use my TIG for what it's best at, heat control on thin material.

BTW, If your looking for an industrial/commercial spool gun, look elsewhere. Like the similar Miller spool gun, this gun is top quality and made of a tough resin, but is not designed for continuous use.

Tryed out the spool gun this week on the aluminum. Was very impressed does a good job. Had a little trouble getting the wire through the push/pull gears. But after that works like a charm. I would recommend spare tips when you first start to you get use to it. Me and my Dad are well impressed with the performance.

Bought this unit to match to my Hobart 210 for aluminum welding.

1st off I have to say loading this gun is a nightmare. When I say nightmare I wish it was as easy as a nightmare. Spent nearly 45 minutes the 1st attempt, and had to take the gun apart to try and clear a jam. I don't think this will be a "practice makes perfect" It is just a very poor design. The problem is, the upper roller lifts to open the jaws to allow the wire to load through. The bottom roller is fixed and it too high. so when you push the wire from the back it hits the roller and lifts it too high to thread it through the next part. You have to pull the wire out and try "pre bending" exactly right to get it to fish through.
They needed to add an access hole after the rollers so you can use a thin screwdriver to help line up the holes after the roller.

Once loaded it works like a charm and lays down some nice welds.
So far I have welded as thin as .125 plate but butt welds. This was a little tricky and you have to move fast to keep from burning through, not the prettiest but strong.
As thick as 1/4" extrusions this welded very nice and laid down some nice dimestacks.

Tried it out this weekend and it has not disappointed us. Will have to get used to welding with aluminum as it is different from steel, but it works well. Nice and smooth. Would highly recommend it!

Purchased spool gun to experiment with welding aluminum. Did weld some aluminum samples and it seems to work fine. It does require some patience to feed the aluminum wire.

Heads up. this is not miller compatible with the millermatic series. I have the 140. The brass connector for gas and power is a smaller diameter and it does not come with anything you need to use it with a millermatic 140/160/190.
I had a spare miller mig gun and so I removed the connector end, made a coupler and installed a plug so it wouldnt lose gas.
You can buy that piece from airgas for like $17. Unless you happen to come across a situation like I did where time was important, I wouldnt do this as I had to also buy a 6 connector 3 position switch from Nappa parts store works just as good and wire it in. I actually used jumpers the first 2 days. Hopefully this program will allow me to come back and edit this so the handiwork can be seen. all in all I saved $85 and didnt lose production time. reason for purposely buying this an making it work, one word, TIME!!!
They didnt have a miller available for prime account, and next 2 day shipping was close to $60. took me an hour longer to to install this one over not having the right fit from a miller.
WORKS LIKE A CHARM AND IM LUVIN IT!!

Its the easiest to reload of all guns I've ever used. Time will tell how this gun works,I'm guessing it will be just fine.

Finally converted my Hobart 175 Handler to this spool gun and don't know how I have lived without it. 100% improvement when welding aluminum!
