got a snap -on wire feeder in trade for some work,the guy didn't have enough money.don't see any i.d. numbers but it looks pretty old. its not a welder just a wire feeder that hooks to a power source;big stick welder maybe. Question is do i need a cv power source or can i use cc,say a bare bones miller 250 tig welder or am i better off selling it to a welding shop and buying something else.

It's not a spool gun is it? Does it look kind of like a suit case? If it does you'll probably find that the only place you can get rid of it is either on ebay or through a Snap-On dealer, I don't believe you can use it with another power source. If it is the suit case style.... where is the rest of it? One is useless with out the other. You may find it's stolen.

it doesn't look like a suitcase,its not stolen b/c you need a truck to move it.its a wire feeder on a cart with a place for a gas bottle and its got leads to attach to a machine they're like 50 feet long and the welding gun is about 12 feet long.the mig gun is big too,either a 200 or 250 amp gun.the cover says FW 111 WHICH AFTER SEARCHING THE INTERNET MEANS NOTHING SO FAR.i know its not stolen after talking to the guy and some of my welder buddies.they say he got from a welding shop going out of business.the wire feeder part sits on top of the cart with the spool of wire sitting vertically and exposed[no cover].ther's a wire speed adjustment on a control box in front of the spool and a slow-blow fuse and a purge button.not sure what to do with this thing but hate to get rid of it.
