    I bought my Millermatic on 3/22/79 for $857 at Phoenix Welding Supply, still have the receipt. HK224422, LOL! This old, but solid machine has built 3 off-road race cars, 4-5 car hauling trailers, hundreds general welding projects too numerous for an old man to remember. She has always run dependably and allowed me to do stuff I never would have dreamed of 42 yrs ago. All that, and she still don't look bad either!

    I think the rollers are probably fine. After doing some tune-up work on her, everything seems to be working fine. I did replace the main contactor, as the old one was severely pitted and had almost no contact surface left. Miller hooked me up with a 60a rated contactor that fit right into the old footprint.

    Definitely post a puc of the rollers. I thought they were the same as the MM200, which is the same as the rest of the larger Miller stuff.

    Welcome, Amofred9. Your first post is just to ask someone else their real name? May I recommend you start an intro thread, and we get to know you instead?

    Introduction

    Hi all. Me and my trusty MM35 "white face" welder just trying to make our way along. I need to keep learning and the MM35 just keeps humming along. I bought it new in the late '70s and have used the heck out of it since. Just hobby and weekend warrior stuff, but it has served me well. It really is the best tool I ever bought.

    I replaced the cable and gun with a Tweco No. 2 years ago when they sold an adapter for it. I also added an electric gas solenoid at that time. I did want to ask if anyone knows of a source for replacement wire rollers?
