  • Spoolmate 3035 / 175 connection question

    I have a Millermatic 175 that I am trying to hook the Spoolmate 3035 and SGA 100 to. Can anyone tell me EXACTLY where the "spoolgun weld cable" connects to. The newer 185 must have a lug to bolt the cable on but with my 175 it's not real clear. I have all the diagrams and owners manuals but I am still not sure where it connects. Any help would be greatly appreciated. A picture would be the best. Also, I assume that other then the trigger control I don't have to disconnect anything else from the 175. Is this correct? Thanks

    The spoolgun weld cable goes on the + stud in the welder's wire feed cabinet. Don't forget to release the drive roll tension and pop the tensioner off the wire, or you'll have a fine mess when you pull the spoolgun trigger!

      Hank, Thanks for the help. When doing this hookup the trigger control for the 175 torch is unplugged and a cord from the SGA is plugged in its spot. With the 175 trigged control unplugged, won't this prevent the wire feed from turning in the 175?
