    The one I have here is definitely Hobart, it has the old plastic drive assembly with an aluminum power block bolted to it. Just a rectangle block, bored to fit the pin, with a power attachment and a hose attachment. Nothing like your picture.

    Making a sleeve on a lathe isn't an option,...

    I have a Trailblazer 301G (2002), it will NOT operate either my 185TSW or TD 51 plasma. Both will start normally, but then immediately quit. It doesn't trip breakers or anything, just won't operate them. On the other hand, both plasma and inverter work just fine plugged into my Lincoln Commander...

    Left an inquiry with Hobart parts this morning, hopefully they'll get back to me next week. Doubt anybody else would have it in stock, it's not a normal replacement item. BTW, the Miller gun won't work, read Sandy's post above. I'd be afraid of boring the block out more, walls are already too th...

    Yeah, Keith, I'm finally starting to get it. It must have been bored out. The walls are really thin, even where the hold-down bolt goes through, I only see two threads.

    This machine is old enough, it has the old hard plastic drive housing. Nothing wrong with it, I remember many people...

    Still kicking, Richard. Email is still the same, I lost yours. Seems the only time we talk anymore is when somebody passes away.

    I got pretty wet the last few days, working outside, I finally came to my senses and am sitting in my office today taking care of a few things, with a nice hot...

    Keith: I still have a question. The power block has a bore of 5/8", does the gun you mention have a 5/8" backend? Every dimension I have seen on these Hobart guns specifies a dimension of 0.46". That is what my HH210 has. Did Hobart use a 5/8" power pin on the earlier models,...

    Just to explain, this isn't my machine. A friend found it at a pawn shop, the dealer let him take it and bring it to me. I checked it out, everything worked, although I couldn't actually run a wel, due to the gun issues. Pawn shop was asking $200 for this, I told my friend to offer $50, if they don't...

    Thanks, Sandy. Just went out and double-checked the one I have, the ID of the power block is definitely 5/8". Hopefully one of the Hobart guys will see this and comment.

    HH187 gun/backend

    I'm trying to find a gun assembly to work on an early HH187. This has a 5/8" diameter power pin, looks like about 2 1/2" or a little more long, from the front of the block to the drive rollers. Nothing I see on anybody's website fits. Gun it came with, looks like a standard Tweco, correct...
