    Default hobart handler just got tired

    few months back i dusted off my at least, 10 year old handler, to get the mice out of it, it welded fine, yesterday, i tried to weld with it, the wire was coming out real slow, i did all of the normal stuff, like tension on the wheels ect, what made it work was to double the wire speed, if it called for number 4, ws, i would place the knob on number 8, it ran fine, but the settings are way off, any clue to what has happened

    Well kevin, apparently your Hobart Handler doesn't appreciate mouse urine.

    Again kevin, if you treat something like crap it goes to crap.

    Default probably the liner

    Open the tension arm on the drive. Does the drive roll turn double the speed? With the tension arm clamped down does the drive roll slip? Really, it sounds like the gun was coiled up too small or too long and the motor cannot push the wire through the liner.
