  • Bought some old, but low hours,equipment,...

    Newbie here. Just bought a Trailblazer 250G with an HF box and an old Spoolmatic 3 gun.
    Question #1: Does the Spoolmatic plug into the High Frequency box, HF-251D-1?

    Question #2: Is a spool gun and a wire feed box two different designs for doing the same thing?

    question #1 = i dunno...
    question #2 = it pretty much is the same way of doing things. I see the spool gun as a way to mig weld aluminum tho. But if i had a engine drive i would use a spool gun insted of a box feeder, it's cheaper and jus seems more practical to mee. Can you get extentions for the spool guns tho? you know?

      Unless that "box" is a WC-115 which is the box you need to run a spoolgun on a trailblazer. It runs the positive lead into it and runs of of the 110v circuit also. It should never be ran thru the freek box tho.

          Do not hook up the spoolmatic to the hf box,the spoolmatic was never designed for or needed high frequency.The older spoolmatic 3 will be a direct hookup to your engine drive 14 pin,no extra box needed.The newer spoolmatics need a w115 or whatever box.Just trying to help.
