  • Best place to buyFeed wheels and tips.

    Hey all: I finally bought a HH210 mvp w/spool gun. Thanks for all the tips on the downside of the 110 units. I have been practicing with the flux core it came with and really like it so i know ill like it when i start using gas. I need to buy some .23, .35 tips and .23 feed roller. Ebay has been slim to none on feed rollers but im not the best searcher either. I have never used a mig/wire feed but it seems to be fun. Might be more expensive (wire,gas) than my stick welder though...............Fireman

    I don't know what you're welding, but a roll of .030 solid wire drops right in (don't forget to change the polarity) and probably can do 90% of what you need. Exception would be use of thin sheet metal like autobody work. You might check with Northern Tools/Hardware or Tractor Supply Co., they stock Hobart parts.

      One source for drive rolls & etc.:

      http://store.cyberweld.com/hodrro0vsmso.html

      .024-.035 V Smooth Solid Wire Hobart part number 237 338

      Get a couple packs of tips or whatnot and you'll be over the $25. minimum order, which included standard UPS ground shipping.

        When searching on ebay, unless Hobart uses different terminology, use "drive rolls". I never heard them called "feed roller". Also, search the part number with and without the space, "237 338", "237338". And narrow your search. Start in Business & industrial - Manufacturing & metal working - Welding - All welding.

        But I agree, .030 should be good for most thin stuff.

          I agree. about the only time I would put 023 in was if I had a steady diet of auto body, have 2 units this size and have never ran 023 in them.

            HH 210 parts.

            Hey all: thanks or the info. I will mostly be welding tubing (square sign poles) and 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4" steel. Ill leave the heavier stuff to the stick welder. Also i read the liner needs changed with different size wire, i sure hope not.

                The liner that came with the unit will handle .023-.035. But as the previous posters suggest, the .030 will work unless welding thin gauge material under 18ga.

                    use .030" wire

                    I have the same machine and like the way it runs with .030" and .035" flux-core. It also does very nice with .030" solid wire. I am disappointed with the way it runs .035" solid as the wire is a little "drippy" on tap 6 (maybe not enough inductance). The wire doesn't burn off smoothly...a lot of spater. It isn't a problem for me as I just put in a roll of Lincoln .030" and am quite happy with the lower spatter and flatter bead. This is on tap 6 and I don't use tap 7.
                    Your question about .023" solid...I wouldn't bother with it except for sheetmetal. The .030" solid can easily weld 18g and with a little practice you can do 20 g.

                      i never thought to blame drippy wire on the machine before... i personally adore drippy wire.

                        come to think of it im rather fond of .023 too. yeah, if youve the free time to write novels in your head as you weld your wire might be a little small but otherwise....
