    I had an aluminum repair on a refer floor. And my spoolgun cable was to short. I belive its only 12' long does any one here know if they sale an extension. Id like to double the length.

    You can't set your welder up there and use an extension cord on it? Might be cheaper. I have see some extensions but not for that gun...Bob

        You may run short of weld power with that length. I know when i run .035 steel thru my spool gun i have to have my machine maxxed out and it doesn't weld well. Drop down a wire size and its fine...Bob

          I run .030 4043
          Ithink ill be ok
          I just took the spool gun apart
          Looks like the cable has a tube down the center and 4 cables
          2 for the switch
          2 for the motor
          Im thinking about leaving the spoolgun alone and building and extension with the 4 wires and tubing running on the outside.
          I think it will be better this way .
          And only hooking up the extension when needed.
          1. Ill need some brass machined to a female coupler.
          2. Brass hose fittings
          3. some 16g wire.
          4. A male end identical as the one found on the spoolgun.

          And I think that will get me going.
          Any advice guys

              Thanks bob
              I found part# 234236 @ miller4less @ $28.
              Its the same male plug found on the sm100.
              Any suggestions on how to run the gas hose out of the plug with out (interfering?) With the weld cable.
