  • spacer for 10lb roll? on miller 252

    so i use the 10lb rolls and on my 252 i notice there is a huge gap behind the roll of wire if i center it to the roller system..do they make a spacer to stick behind the 10lb roll?...seems like an awefull poor fit for 10 lb roll it shifts side to side alot!...almost 1" of space the roll can just travel....seems very sloppy by miller to run it like this...am i doing something wroung here?

    You slide the roll all the way back so the rod catches the hole in the spool then add a spacer to the front.

        They used to use a spring to hold tight against the back, not sure about now. If you don't have a spacer or spring you can just cut a pc. of pvc pipe to the right size.

          Every old wire feeder I've seen comes with a piece of drain pipe or electric conduit cut to the right length...

              This is what I mentioned. All older feeders/machines had this. Any metal or pvc pipe will work also.
