  • mig wire size

    For my Millermatic 175 the tip is stamped .023, the spool of wire just used up says it is .024 and Home depot sells Lincoln .025. Will .025 work?

        i just use 045 tips in my migs that way i don't have to worry about changing tips to larger size .never had any wire whipping around on me and you can't really tell any diference in the tips when welding .plus i always make it a point to run a larger tip to cut down on binding when welding.if you run a 035 tip and run 035 waire just one bb from the arc can shut you down.so i suggest that you just get you some 045 tips and go with it.the only thing you have to change when going to smaller wire from larger wire is the rollers..025 and .035 will run the same rollers but going from .045 down to .024 will sometimes give you a bit a slipping .

              So if an .045 tip is .010-.014 bigger than whats stamped on it (its supposed to be if its an industry standard) you could almost run 2 .023's thru that, almost LOL...Bob
