  • Advice on wire feeder selection

    Hi all,
    i'm new to the forum, this is my first post. I have a Syncrowave 350 and am interested in expanding my skills and capabilities to SMAW and FCAW . Anyone have any thoughts on what wire feeder would work well with my Syncrowave? I do mostly small fabrication and repair jobs, but would like to expand in a few years when I retire from active duty. Thanks.

    You asked the same question the other day...

    Yes you can run a Voltage Sensing feeder with a Sync but your results will likely be frustrating and disapointing...

      The Miller 252, It might be a little over kill if your talking Home Hobby, stepping down to the next smaller unit would be your best bet.

      I own a welding company and am yet to find a job the 252 cant do and I have been doing this 26 years.

      Your best resale value will be the 252.

        The MM252 would be an excellent choice ...

        Could always go one step up from there and get the MM350P.... Really like mine..
