    Owned my machine for 12 -13 years and never knew that there is a flat knurled pressure roll available. I'm going to have to order one them, and start using it with solid wire over the knurled lower drive roll.

    I just noticed it looks like they are shipping the order short. A few days ago I called to inquire about why it was taking so long. I was informed that they were waiting for a flat roller. Looks like they shipped it less the .040 - 1/16 serrated roller as the charge is $0.00

    Parts arrived and they eventually charged me for that roller they shipped which they did not initially charge me for.

    So how's your machine working out for you?

    It works good. I have not used it for a minute. Tore the gun appart at the machine end wanting to convert a tweco V350 15’ spraymaster gun to work on this machine. That is where it sits. I got sidetracked buying a couple of garden tractors and other things. Had a vacation and had to learn how to diagnose and repair the ac compressor for my home. My biggest concern was getting this machine to work properly. Since getting it to weld like I think it should I moved onto other projects. I have it for later on when I get involved in large projects and spray transfer.

    Edit: I also still need to get a good multi meter that can measure DC amperage.

    The guy that sold this machine to me still has another one listed. He has been trying to sell it for the longest time. The machine he is trying to sell is suppose to be a good working machine given a good bill of health by a repair center. He is asking less than $400 for it.

    Thank you AGW. The description states that it does not measure dc current.

    This meter seems to capable of what I want a meter to be able to do for not too much money. Notice it can read both AC & DC Current.

    Thank you MJD It looks like it has way more good reviews over the bad ones and even some comparing it as an alternative to their more expensive Fluke meter.

    I have a fluke and bought this as a lower cost option to keep for home use. It's done all I need and the magnet, light and non contact voltage are nice extra features.
