    Spoolmatic 1 on a millermatic 35

    there is a site somewhere(if my memory serves me well,which normally it doesnt) which i cant seem to locate that gives a way to wire an old millermatic 35 with a wc1 control box to operate a spoolmatic 1 gun.Does anyone recall this site?

    Thanks

    the manuals do not cover the old 35 because it had no hook up for a spool gun .the site im speaking of had a way to hard wire the wc1 into the millermatic to make it useable

    Looks really nice Monk.

    I meant to respond to your original question and let you know that a Spoolmatic 3 would be easier to set up on that MM35 and with a couple easy mods to the welder it wouldn't require a weld controller (WC-1). If you're still interested let me know.

    Thanks Duanne but the spoolmate is working just fine so i think ill leave the old 35 alone.

    Nice!

    What brand / paint code is that? I've got a couple units that are asking for a fresh coat of 'true blue'.

    I get all my paint mixed at a local automotive paint supplier. I use an inexpensive acrylic enamel with a hardener. Runs about $85 a gallon, about $ 20 a quart. You're best off taking a sample piece in & having them color match it. Miller made several shades of blue, depending on the year of the machine. If you have anything pre 1990's, or late '80's it will most likely get second generation blue, which is darker than the blue they use now. The early machines were a dark metallic blue. Even the second generation blues had variations.

    AE paint is 100 times better than crap alkyd enamel (tractor paint) Miller sells IMHO. It dries fast with a medium reducer & after a couple few coats glosses up nice & gets hard. I like to throw some Smoothie anti fisheye in it too.

    Earliest Miller machines were green. Glad that didn't last.

    Good luck.

    Re: Spoolmatic 1 on a millermatic 35

    That would certainly work but as I said in an earlier post, a Spoolmatic 3 could be set up to work on a MM35 without the need for the WC-1. It would only require a couple simple wiring modifications to keep the drive motor from activating with the spoolgun trigger but anybody with a little electrical back ground could pull it off.

    Somehow I figured you were going to say some form of Ford Blue. Thanks.

    If you're going to paint a machine, do it right & color match it. It's not very expensive & looks the bomb when you're done. There's a few that are somewhat close, but nothing beats a true color matched paint job if you're going for the real look.

    Just my take on it.
