    Default MIG wire size question...

    Good day everybody... New to the board and MIG welding...

    I recently purchased a Miller 140 auto set for my autobody work... I also purchased some mig wire from a welding supply store and upon arriving home realized they sold me .023 wire instead of .024...

    My question is will the machine function properly with the .023 wire while its in .024 a/s mode ??? I personally don't think the .001 will make a noticeable difference, but I've been wrong before...

    Thanks for the help..

    Some have there stuff marked .025" for this size also, but all three sizes are the same to the welding machine and tips.
