    Yes Norm it sure does! Better than last year at this time wondering where the next job was coming from. I hope you're busy as well and I hope all the guys/gals on this forum are busy enough to keep the bills paid.

    I've already been that route. The problem is I have an old machine which makes the search difficult. My welding supplier has tried everyone including Miller and no one makes an adapter to convert the new style Miller guns to the old Millermatic 35's. I have a machine shop and have access to CNC machines, I just don't have time to sit down and draw what I need so I can either make it or have it made yet.

    Default If you can't convert easy, go on EBay

    I picked up a 15' Q300 Bernard gun on EBay for $100.00 last summer. If you can easily convert an old gun on an older machine, then just get a whole new gun. As long as it has the Miller End on it, it should hook up. The Q300 was a nice upgrade to the MM200.

    The biggest problem I have had with the Q300 is finding some replacement parts online and at the LWS. I found nozzels at one source online and the CenterFire Tips at another online source. My biggest problem has been trying to find the Jump Liners for the gun. Few if any online have the jump liners available as SINGLES, most only will sell in sets of 5 or 10. My LWS is doing the same thing too. I don't weld 24/7 and a set of 10 Tips will last me for years. The same can be said for the liner and jump liner in the gun. I have 2 of the 3545 Jump Liners but am having trouble finding the 2330 jump liners. AirGas will sell me 10 but I don't need that many.

    I converted my M25 to a Bernard Centerfire front end and it works great. Bernard has a kit that makes the conversion. Call them for details.

    I got a Q300 on eBay for $125 and use it on my MM200. Great upgrade and not too costly. A consumable kit with insulator ring and 2 nozzles for my Milker gun was almost the same price.

    My only complaint about the Q is the trigger size. Its large and quite easy to unintentional hit while handling the gun.
