  • Millermatic 185 Liner questions

    New guy here...Can I use a .030 liner in the above machine with .023 wire...as long as I use the .023 roller feed wheel and tip?
    Thanks!!

    Yep! I don't think I have ever seen a liner on the shelves at the lws for .023 wire.

        Thanks for the input. The .030 spare liner I have is too cruddy to use, so I have an .023 liner coming today. It seems my wire is a bit corroded from sitting around for too long, as well. Will try using a scotchbrite pad clothes-pinned to the wire between the spool and feed roller to pre-clean it. Anyone ever done this?

          I have been using thick felt that way for 34 years...Bob

            Excellent. Is there any kind of "lubricant" that can be applied to your wool or my scotchbrite pad that will help clean it, ease it down the liner, and not affect the weld?
            Thanks

              paper clamps holding the wool felt work very well.... is an old old trick....
              the felt could take a very light shot of silicone spray.. (not much)

              BTW.. silicone spray is a good thing to spray on partially used spools of steel mig wire before they are put away for storage to discourage rust during the humid months...

                Clothespins work well also the you don't run the risk of the metal paper clip shorting out if it slips
