  • Generic Spool Gun

    I have a BetaMig 251 and weld mostly steel. I don't need to do aluminum often enough to spend a lot on a spool gun, but a local guy has a generic (Chinese...) 200 amp spool gun. It gas the welding lead, gas line, and a 4 wire cord (red, white, green, black). Can this gun work on my machine. The Hobart manual calls for a module for a Hobart gun, does the module just provide a prewired plug for easy attachment, or does the module serve another purpose? Thanks, Fred

    The Betamig is DC only, right? You'll need AC for aluminum.

    I see you list a Miller 330 A/BP Tig in your sig... why not use that?!?

      Don't know anything about that spool gun but just to clarify mig welding of aluminum is done in DC not AC.

        Oops! I was thinking TIG.

        As far as I can tell, the "module" is just a plug.
