Hi guys, new here
I have a miller 252 mig welder.
a buddy of mine that owns a mill write company have me a prince
alum spool gun.
the spool gun does not hook right up to my welder.
the gun came with a unit wired in line called the "torpedo"
after a inquiry to mk products, the said the torpedo was an "interface" module that allowed the gun to work on miller welder a using the 14 pin connector.
the connector is just slightly to big to fit the receptacle on my welder.
of course they wanted to sell me a stand alone module to control the gun for 500$
I will only use the gun a handful times around the garage a year.
if anyone knows how to adapt this to my welder than would be great.
i think I have the correct wire diagram for my miller welder.
if I have to buy the right connector for the welder and put it on the gun wiring harness that is fine.
I would just need to know what wires go were.

I wouldn't hook a "prince spool gun" up to anything. They are junk in my eyes. Just my thoughts...BobBob Wright, Grandson of Tee Nee Boat Trailer Founder

I won't hook up that piece of C*R*A*P to ANYTHING!! I toss em brand new into the garbage bin.
Go on Ebay and get yourself a 15 or 30A Miller spoolgun. I hook these up to all brands. Most dependable, crazy reliable unit out there in welding land.

Since you have it, is that prince a 6 pin or 7 pin on the amphenol

It's a 14 pin connector. Of the torpedo interface module.
i was able to get more info out of the mk products.
Theres only 3 wires on the 14 pin connector going into the miller.
and they gave me a diagram.
so now I just need the amphenol connector that goes on my 252 and solder the 3 wires to the new plug and I'm ready to go.
I believe I even have the right number for the plug.
