    Cool

    You can't set your welder up there and use an extension cord on it? Might be cheaper. I have see some extensions but not for that gun...Bob

    You may run short of weld power with that length. I know when i run .035 steel thru my spool gun i have to have my machine maxxed out and it doesn't weld well. Drop down a wire size and its fine...Bob

    I run .030 4043
    Ithink ill be ok
    I just took the spool gun apart
    Looks like the cable has a tube down the center and 4 cables
    2 for the switch
    2 for the motor
    Im thinking about leaving the spoolgun alone and building and extension with the 4 wires and tubing running on the outside.
    I think it will be better this way .
    And only hooking up the extension when needed.
    1. Ill need some brass machined to a female coupler.
    2. Brass hose fittings
    3. some 16g wire.
    4. A male end identical as the one found on the spoolgun.

    And I think that will get me going.
    Any advice guys

    Thanks bob
    I found part# 234236 @ miller4less @ $28.
    Its the same male plug found on the sm100.
    Any suggestions on how to run the gas hose out of the plug with out (interfering?) With the weld cable.
