    I had a few MM35's and they are pretty close to my MM185. It should be able to do 3/8" plate with no problem, just watch the duty cycle so you don't cook the machine. I would use .030 wire but thats up to you. What's you plan for gas? CO2 or 75/25 either one would be fine...Bob

        The Millermatic 35 has been my main shop welder for over 10 years now. I can't tell you how many 30lb rolls I've run through it as I've lost count. It was a staple of Miller's sales for several years back in the late 70s and early 80s. I keep wanting to get a new, shiny machine, but this one just won't die.

        I run .035 with a recently updated Benard Centerfire gun and 25/75 CO2/Argon gas. You can tell the year it was made by the serial number - check with Miller.

        Last time I looked, parts were still available although the old, original guns weren't. Although the drive design isn't perfect, you can still upgrade to the latest Centerfire style.

        It's a good welder for up to 3/8". I've welded four foot long beads with 1/4" plate on the #4 tap without overheating it. Note that it does not have an automatic shut-off when you get it too hot. So, you have to feel the tap cable by hand if you think you are on the high side of it's duty cycle.

          Jess,

          You can download the manual from this site (click on the "SERVICE" tab at the top of the page), or, if the manual is no longer in the archive, you can order a paper copy for $15.

            One other thing is the MM35 is the grand daddy of the modern day mig, they were the first small mig that was affordable. If it wasn't for the sucess of the MM35 we all wouldn't have migs to play with at home...Bob
