    Its how good your drive is to push farther than a stock gun. Longer generally is NOT BETTER!

          Ongoing hunt for the thin stainless welder.

          Bummed the 212 and 252 are only rated down to 22 gauge.

            The MM350P is advertised down to 24 Ga.... has PULSE...and has a 4 roll drive system so it is more tolerant of the longer MIG guns

            it is an EXCELLENT machine...

            but I think a Dynasty TIG is probably your best answer..

              The dynasty and mm350 are likely both out of his price range. Neither of those machines is cheap. I haven't used them but I can't imagine they could be a bad purchase. I wish I had both of those in my shop.

                I have a MM252, and a Dynasty 280DX. I've tried the MIG on thin stainless, it didn't work. Might have been gas related, the manager at an Airgas Branch sold me a helium mix he said was for stainless. With the Dynasty it's effortless. If you don't need to weld aluminum there are lots of good choices in TIG.

                  Sounds like this might be an option for the suitcase wire feeders. All depends on application I guess...
