  • Miller matic 200 87year

    Hello all im having a problem with my machine it feeds steel wire good. But when i switch to stainless roll same size wire. I have a new gun and lead. Its like the roll winder isnt keeping up withe the rollers? Any help would be appreciated.

    Steel wire is hard and has a copper coating for lubricity while feeding, but can load up the liner with shavings. SS wire is very soft and tends to gall or drag in the liner.

    Blow out your liner and try again. Increasing tension the v rollers more could deform the wire so be careful. If all else fails you might try putting the u groove rollers on and increasing the roller tension much more.

    Good Luck
