    Small spool on old HF

    Hello guys.
    I have the old Chicago electric mig welder model 93793 (blue case with an eagle sticker ).
    Is there a way to modify it to accept a smaller wire spool?
    Thanks in advance.

    Probably. How about a good picture of the wire feed side of that machine.

    There are vendors on Ebay that likely have it.

    I bought the similar part for the recent model Mig-180. It's named 'universal' so there should be some way to mount it.

    They offer 30 day return so you are out only return postage if you can't make it fit.
