    Default Anyone adapted the 100 series spoolgun to the 175 yet?

    As the title says.

    Any tips or tricks

    I was just wondering if anybody with electrical background has looked into this. I don't imagine miller would tell us.

    I'm just trying to obtain a spoolgun without having to upgrade to the 180.

    Call Bob at B&R Welder 301 870-3252 he can tell you how it can be done. He is working on puting kits together to do what you are asking.

    Default spoolmate 100 on millermatic 135/175

    the spoolmate 100 will work on the millermatic 135 & millermatic 175 after serial#
    LC175022 ( with the 2 pin square drive motor plugs)
    a installation kit is required.
    we are also working on a kit for the handler 135, 140, 175, 180 and 187.
    Miller does not recommend the spoolmate on the earlier models because if the spoolgun becomes shorted it can take out the pc board on the millermatic .
    That would be a unlikely possibility. Miller built a foldback circuit on the newer MM 140 & 180's to protect the board.
    We have also hooked the spoolmate 100 to Millermatic 200, Millermatic 150 and it works fine .

    I can be reached at 800-783-3073 for questions

    Would this also work on the DVI?

    Well, I did it.

    Bought the retrofit kit, designed for the 140 & 180. The thing just plugs in and the 100 series spoolgun works flawlessly. After I got the kit and the spoolgun I realized with a little wiring
    I could use the switch that comes with the spoolgun and take back the retrofit kit, but a parameter chart comes with the kit so I said whatever, I'll keep it.

    so it is possible.
