  • Which mig gun for a Hobart Beta-mig II 200?

    I need to purchase a mig fun for my Beta-mig II 200 welder. The serial # is 88WS20982 which says it was manufactured in 1988. The original gun was a Hobart GAL200.

    Doing a search, it appears that I need a mig gun with a Tweco #2-4 end. Can someone confirm before I buy one?

    Calling Hobart tech support didn't help. The recommended that I buy a Hobart piecemaker 25A mig gun. I would rather buy something different if possible.

    I'm looking at this gun. Binzel style 230amp, 15' gun for $97.xx + shipping.

    Any other gun recommendations would be helpful. I don't want to spend too much $$$ for a mig gun.

    Thanks,
    Charles

    Can't confirm the interface type needed, but I urge you to check out the Bernard guns.
    Really a great design. The neck can be swivelled 360* which usually insures you can get your body and hand into a relaxed position. The nozzle screws on and won't get jarred loose when you bang it, like I do, to knock the spatter out.
    I always miss the Bernard when I switch to the M25 gun that I keep set up for small wire.

      I put a 15' Tweco on mine. The LWS listed an adapter for the Beta-Mig but I didn't use it. It just seemed like the O ring grove was a little tight.
      What do I know I am just an electronics technician.

        Thanks for the info.. I ended up ordering a Tweco #2 gun with a Tweco end.

        Except mine was $125 shipped from the same vendor.
