    Vulcan Spool Gun

    Hey Folks,

    With the new line up coming to Harbor Freight and people talking about the Vulcan series price rising Iím wondering if I should go ahead and buy the spool gun for the MigMax. Does it function well, have any of you guys used it yet?

    Iíve got a 20% off coupon I can use on it, only reason Iíve held off on buying it is because at the moment I donít do a lot of work with AL, but that can always change in the future. The other thing being that 160A isnít a whole lot of power when it comes to AL, but I could always use a HE mix if I had a thicker AL project.

    If itís good, I think Iíll purchase it with my coupon before the price goes up on Vulcan welders and accessories any more.

    What do you guys think?

    Have not used it. But, I am pretty sure anything branded ďVulcanĒ is excluded from the 20% off coupons.

    . Then, that coupon should do just fine!

    That’s what I used my 20% off coupon for that came with my Omni Pro. I saw the prices of Vulcan stuff was starting to go up back in August and decided to jump on the spool gun. I’m going to be using it for a first time either today or tomorrow so I’ll report back how it works. I’ve had it out of it’s case and it looks decent enough but I’ll see what it can do...

    I’d appreciate it Ian, thanks! If it seems pretty good I’ll probably go grab it this weekend.

    Don't let them take that coupon, you can use it over and over.

    So I got it all set up this past weekend and then got called away to do a couple other things around the house so it will get its test this weekend. I just didn’t want people to think I forgot about this thread.

    160amps @ 35% duty cycle.

    You can use it for the full amperage the Migmax outputs -just at a lower duty cycle.
