    Default Love my Millermatic 35S but...

    Is there any way to get more wirespeed out of it? Seems like I have it cranked on only the second or third power setting and that's it.....it makes some killer welds but high voltage is out of the question I guess because I can't feed more wire....

    Cool

    I have had quite a few 35's and don't remember wire feed being an issue...Bob

    I have it cranked at 100 with .035 and c25.....seems like it's running slow....I can easily get ahead of myself....it welds beautiful but slow...

    Is it possible that the wire speed is semi relative to the voltage on this old machine? It has the plug in voltage selection(not a knob).....I haven't tried it on anything more than the 3rd voltage setting and it felt like with the wire speed maxed out it was "almost" enough.....is this adjustable?

    The wire speed is controlled by the voltage tap. The higher the volts, the faster the wire speed. The wire speed on that is the fine adjustment

    Does the motor get hot? If so you may need to pull the transmission apart and regrease.

    Put some .030 wire in it and you will see a big difference...Bob

    I agree with bob. My mm180 doesn't even like .035. I always use .030 with good results.

    My MM185 doesn't like .035 either and the specs for the 185 and 35 are about equal...Bob

    Yes bob may be correct. My hobart e-z 125 flux core runs .030 much smoother, you are the adjustment for.035.just takes patience. And sometimes for really thin weird composition alloy tubing, I even feed in some deglazed 7018 rod as a consumable to beef up the puddle and reduce the heat. Sometimes you just have to toy around with it. Dave
