  • Will this work with a MM185?

    Hello all, Im a newbie for sure. Just want to know if a Snap-on Model number: MHG 5-B, aluminum spool gun, will work on a MillerMatic 185. Any help is appreciated. Trying to find a decent inexpensive gun to learn aluminum with. Thanks! Mike

    If you want to fiddle fart around and make it work it prob will. I think you would be happier with one that fits that is a good price...Bob

      Thanks Bob!

      Thanks for the quick reply! I may be able to get the Snap on gun pretty cheap, so I think I will get it and fiddle fart around. It supposedly has only been used once and put away. Any words of wisdom on what to fiddle with first? Thanks!

        Mike, The only way i would get it is if it was free. My buddy has the snap on job and i hate using it compared to mine, but that could just be me. The plug will need changed to fit your Miller....Bob

          Thanks

          Thank you sir, I was hoping to get that gun for around 150.00, but maybe I will just buy the one you recommend. I know I also need to get a straight Argon bottle as well. I have heard some suggestions in regards to aluminum welding, that it is pretty much like steel, you just have to move the gun a lil faster.

          Thanks again!

            How about this one

            So Bob, will this one from the Miller website work? The chart says I need the spoolmate 185. I assume that the 100 series is included... am I wrong?
