    Hi Bob, I use a 15' Tweco gun on my Hobart. If that is what your local dealers stock, that is what I would get. Get a few spare nozzles and contact tips. The 15' gives you more working room on large projects.

      What is the Model No. on the Tweco that can be used on the MM 250? I really enjoy this board, but my wife thinks I never will get up a do some work!
      They don't sell any Cylinders larger than a 80 CF around here

        Your dealer should have the correct part number for you. I use a 50 lb cylinder of CO2 and a smaller cylinder of argon. The 50 pounder is not fun to get out of the truck.

          I was able to purchase a 125CF tank for 145 plus 6% tax Already I saved money by reading these replies, It cost 19.00 to fill it. That sound OK?

            The part # for a Tweco Weldskill 250amp gun with a 15" hose and a miller connection is WM250M-15-4045 this will range from approx. $125.00 to $150.00,depending on where you buy it.Or You could go with the Tweco black handled commercial version at nearly double.I have used both for years and the weldskill is the best bang for the buck,plus a nice gun.It sounds like you got a real bargin on a tank and contents.Locally a 80 CF. tank is $184.00 plus tax and to fill it with C-25,the cost is $28.10.That is why I use the 381 CF. C-25 commercial T tanks.I pay $73.05 for nearly 5 times as much gas.

              More help needed

              Hey Guys,
              The old man is still asking questions and I'm sorry to be a pain, but I still need help! Where can I buy some used tapes or CD's on welding. My Son can copy CD's if I can rent them only for personal use. Thanks again.

                Bob,

                Go to the www.millerwelds.com home page and check out the Miller store for the student package. Cheap and very good from the comments on the board.

                  Try www.ironprojects.com , they have some really good videos on mig welding and other metal related subjects. Welcome and be sure you are not the only old guy here, I will have to plead quilty to that also.
