  • Miller 175 and Aluminium Welding?

    I have a new Miller 175 and want to do some Aluminium work,
    what other accessories/equipment is needed?

    Thanks,

    Just get a bottle of argon to start. If you are satisfied with the results you could get a teflon liner and different drive rolls but I personally think they are a waste of money. Good luck. Scott.

      Spoolgun and controller would be my choice! Running Al through a regular mig gun is a bit difficult, due to rats nesting. I have the mm210 w/spoolmate 3035 and it works great, so that would be the better setup, but that is my $.02 worth.
      Peace,

          On the miller products site it lists the 3035 spoolmate as an accessory.

              SGA 100 controller and 3035 spoolgun. Miller p/n's 043 856 controll and 195 016 gun. B&R welder has them for $620 and free shipping.

                Yes i would diffently suggest the sga 100 and spoolmate 3035, is the best set up for you to do alum, not only that but you don't have to keep changing the wire ea. time.

                    guys. i can run 4043 wire through my 135 with teflon liner NO PROBLEM. with NO reguardes to the gun cable straightness. i sure would like to see how a 175 machine would burn this wire.
