    Thats fine too. But i have 4 of them with different wires and since i have a welder and a shop to make stuff i built them. But i could have just as easy ordered four and spent 80 bucks and watched more Duck Dynasty reruns ....Bob

    I found this on the Atlas Welding Assec. website but they are available from some welding distributors and other websites.

I was going to rewind them on an empty big spool but don't have the time. So i thought of an adaptor, i don't have time to make one for a few days but i will throw out the idea. Use a piece of 2" black pipe the width of the big spool. Bring 2 arm's straight out with a 5/8" hole to hole the 4" spool, you can tighten the 5/8" nut for some tension on the little spool. Then you will need an arm downward like a kickstand to keep everything level for the wire to go into the drive. I have some 1/4" bolts with rubber feet i plan to use. Hey give it a shot. Sure beats buying a giant spool of .023 if you only need a little. Will post some pics in a few days...Bob
    One other thing it would be good for those small rolls of flux core if you want to try flux core welding without buying a $50 roll.

    Thats true, when I have time I will fab some things but for the price of a hamburger and fries I purchased the adapter and started to weld when I got it back to the shop. If I had time I would carve my own duck calls. Maybe a guy could machine a stainless duck call?

    Here is mine using PVC. Filed most of the Nylon out of the nyloc nut to get the tension. (easier to turn/tighten) Works with Lincoln/Miller Machines just perfect. Esab multimaster and Thermal-arc feeders also .Lines up just right on the feeder.
