    Default Spoolmatic 1

    Ok guys here's the deal, I just got a new TB302 and 30-A spoolgun with wc-24. My question is can I adapt my old spoolmatic 1 to run off of this setup. From what I can see the only difference is the pins on the plug. Anybody have any thoughts or ideas?

    Well, if you were to remoove the circuit board out of the Spoolamtic 1, and stick a 10K 2 watt potentiometer into it.

    Then you could hookup 2 wires for trigger, 2 wires for motor and 3 wires for the potentiometer.

    However gas would be on all the time.

    As it stands the existing wiring , 4 wires are for the 35 VDC input to the gun, a brake and contactor control.

    So as it stands a Spoolmatic 1 gun cannot be used with a WC-24

    Cruizer, thanks for the info. I got the spoolmatic for free, so nothing lost nothing gained.

    The WC-1 weld control would be needed to use the SM-1 "as is" with your TB 302 but you already have the more compact and lighter WC-24 and 30A combination.

    Keep in mind the SM-1 was a direct connect spoolgun for the early Millermatic 200s with the 4-pin spoolgun receptacle, do not require the WC-1 and are sought after from time to time.
