    This looks like the simple elegeant solution I would hope to find. I may try it on my 3035. Thank you for taking the time to spell it out. It seems simple when somebody tells you how. LOL.

    Thanks for spelling it out for us welding dummies.

    I just got my own spoolmate 100 with the 211, I haven't hooked it up yet, but I did notice that it came with brass .030 tips???? I tend to use .035 with I think .045 tip at my last job that were AL. Will it work with and AL .045 tip? or should I look to mod it?? thanks

    Modify it you will be glad you did. You don't need an .045 tip to run .035 wire the .035 tip is plenty big enough. The tips are usually .010-.014 thou bigger than whats stamped on them. .030 tips will run .035 wire all day just fine i do it all the time...Bob

    Hello,
    OK so how do I get the tube out of the gun, it looks like would have to open the plastic body to get to the nut that hold the inner tube in place, is that so. (I have never opened one up before.
    cheers

    I modified mine and put the heavy duty barrel for a 3035 on it, works great

    I think 4 or 5 screws to split the plastic case and then an open end wrench to get the barrel nut off. Then another screw to get the tube from the barrel...Bob
