  • Too much hassle. Just stretch it a few mm's or so.
    I clamped the nut-end to the edge of a looooong table (24') I had set up for repacking parachutes (and other projects). Sandwiched it between a 2' 2x4 and the table's surface with three wood clamps. Then gripped the other end with a big hand-screw...

  • Well, when the machine starts fussing at you and it's a Sunday and you want to get further along or finish a job, or the LWS that's an hour or so away wants $55 (!!) for a liner, sometimes doing some 'creative' maintenance with what you have on hand can mean the difference between getting 'er done,...

  • Well Bob, that begs the question of where and what brand of wire of that type should we purchase to ensure good welding characteristics?! I've heard this before (LE L-56 being junk), but didn't think too much about it since I've never had many problems with it as long as my machine was working well....

    Did Miller indicate what range of serial numbers for either wire removal? I've been having some weird, snappy, popping starts lately as well, especially on 10 ga and under (cold rolled mild) with L-56 wire of 0.035" and 0.025", even after my aforementioned maintenance though...

  • Ryan,
    The new, untrimmed liner was 5/8" shorter than the original. I tried stretching the liner, and with much grunt it did lengthen to what appeared to be about 0.25" longer than the original liner. Stuck it back into the gun lead, and it did peek out of the conductor a bit, but it...

    started a topic Miller M25 15' gun -- new liner too short

    Miller M25 15' gun -- new liner too short

    I have a MM251 and was experiencing some sputtering while welding 14 gauge steel. I've been meaning to change the gun liner for awhile now, so I took the morning to do some maintenance on the machine.
