Anyway, I want to get into wire welding a little bit. I recently had a chance to acquire a Miller XMT 300 CC/CV welder. Quite a while ago, I also bought a Lincoln LN-25 wirefeed without a contactor and without a gas solenoid valve.
As a first step, I want to get started with flux core welding without involving gas.
My questions are
1) Is LN-25 compatible with XMT 300 CC/CV?
2) What connector to use between them (I can make my own if you suggest parts). I especially want the wirefeed to tell the welder to turn on and off so that I do not have to buy a contactor (big $$$)
3) What wirefeed units besides LN-25 are compatible with XMT 300 CC/CV?
4) Are there such compelling advantages of gas welding as opposed to flux core, that you would say that it is worth the hassle to upgrade to gas welding?
thanks a lot guys!
