  • Help me understand

    I seriously do not understand why it is so hard to look up parts needed for my OLDER welder here. Don't get me wrong I do understand marketing. But dam someone should understand brand loyalty as well. The very reason I purchased the welder I have is because it was the exact one I was raised on. I put down my first bead on the almost exact machine. Now to find replacement parts here is hard at best. Seams the sight wants to sell me a new welder or steer me to new parts. Trying to find the M-35 gear type drive rollers. Wish it was as simple as logging into Miller and ordering on a SUNDAY.

    Hotrod,

    Almost all the owners manuals are available on this site. If you click on the service tab on top and then click on "Owner's Manuals" you can locate almost any part number. As for ordering them we don't sell direct so you can't just order from us but there are some Miller Dealers that have on-line stores that you can order from.

    The drive roll part number for .030 and .035 is 057590 and they are available.

      Well a mm35 is like 30 to 40 years old. Do car dealers have lots of parts for a obsolete vehicle, nope. Why should anyone else. Besides everything inside that unit is jobber.

      Old obsolete parts are generally sold to places like www.vintageparts.com

        My local Stanley Steamer dealership has kerosene, steam oil, tires and matches. What more could you need?

        Dialarc 250 (1974)
