Thread: Century 80 amp

    Question Century 80 amp

    Almost brand new, got for free , uncle couldn't weld with it .

    Anyhow, with tension full on drive it still slips, like it's worn already. How easy should wire pull thru lead? According to manual drive wheels aren't available seperate, have to buy complete motor. Linc to parts or if another manufacture part work on this.

    Do you have the wire threaded all the way thru? I mean is it poking out of the gun?
    Is the wire coroded ? If it is might be hanging up in the liner!

    Is it one of these?



    Mine came with a drive wheel for .035 and .045 wire. Anything smaller slipped, and I had to make up a new wheel for .025 wire. (see next Pic on webshots)

    No, on mine the drive wheel is horizontal.

    If the liner is kinked,it would feed poorly.
