  • Older 1998 model Shopmaster with Series 70 digital wire feeder?

    I have had this wire feeder for a few years while looking for a power supply for it. I found a Miller Shopmaster near me and have these two hooked up via the 14 pin connector. I have it setup with .035 solid wire and 75/25 shielding gas. Seems to weld fine, but the voltage readout in the feeder shows dashes and does not register the voltage from the Shopmaster. I suspect this is due to the fact that the Shopmaster is not capable of remote voltage control? I noticed that pins H and F are not in the 14 Pin plug of the Shopmaster and suspect this is my voltage readout problem? Any insight on this appreciated.

    I haven't used that feeder, but I would assume you're correct.

      Thanks. I can see where there had to be compromises somewhere. In this case remote voltage reading/control is the compromise.

        H is the voltage feedback and F is the current feedback. So you are correct. But you should be able to manually set everything and have a great set up.

          Thank you. You are correct. Welds really well and the series 70 feeder is a hoss compared to the 2 wheel drives I've used.
