  • new gun

    I'm looking to buy a new lead and gun for my mm252. Are the Bernard leads worth the extra money compared to the mig matic guns?

    Try a Bernard Q gun with Centerfire consumables and I'll bet you will like it better than the M series that came with your machine.

        I have and have had Bernard guns. I even have a brand new one from my Pipeworx, it was never put on when I set it up. They are a POS for pulse welding, there is way to much drag in the tips. If you really want something good go Binzel or Tweco.

          They work fine. Not a lot different than the M-25, though bigger cable and a bit more stout. Either can be had on EPay for about $100 shipped.

            I like the Tweco guns as a replacement or upgrade. I have only used a Bernard a time or two at a friends shop. I may have gotten lucky but the Tweco has lasted a very long time and has taken two years of heavy shop use.

              If I were to replace the M20 gun on my 211 AutoSet with one of these which would you recommend?

                  Buy a tweco. Cheaper consumable are far more durable. Was never a huge fan until my q300 broke and switched to tweco last year best move yet.
