  • 195158 Mig Conversion Available?

    I picked up a Hobart 125 from a friend of mine that is brand new in the box. Its an older model part number 500487. It does not have the gas kit in for switching over to gas. I know the conversion kit I'm supposed to use is #195158, but I can't find it ANYWHERE. Does anyone know of somewhere I can still buy one, or if there is an equivalent kit in another brand or something? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

      Best to call Hobart and find out if the parts to do the conversion are still available. The latest manual references that kit number but I seem to recall reading that it had been discontinued since the newest HH125 came with a gas solenoid.

      The Hobart moderators read the forum and might answer your question.

        I have a similar question.

        I have the HH125 that comes with gas valve yet the manual references kit 195158 as the add on I need. What kit do I need to add gas to my welder?

        Thanks.

          Thanks.
          Since your welder has the gas solenoid, you need a gas regulator and the hose connecting it to the welder. And of course, a tank of shielding gas. Any welding supply store can outfit you. Those components aren't that expensive and buying local won't cost much more than ordering on-line.
