  • Tensioner on Millermatic 350P

    Hey guys, my shop just recently got me a millermatic 350p, im having problems setting the wire drive tension, under the hood it almost looks like its pulsing. Im guessing it could be the tension. I noticed on a lot of set up videos there is only one drive wheel, on the new machine theres two sets of two. Im wondering if anyone is familiar with this machine, and if I can bypass a set of these, prolly not im just throwing **** to the wall til it sticks. Id appreciate any commentary and or links.

    Thanks

        Is it a 350 P aluminum machine?

        Does the manual suggest putting different wire tension pressures Click image for larger version

          Adjusting the front drive roll to a different tension than the back roll did the trick!! Thanks man

            You are very welcome Chris, glad you got that great piece of welding equipment running they way it should, . but Franz deserves all the credit, I'm a long time student of his problem solving .coms, be safe and good welding.
