geoffbeaumont Posted April 25, 2009 Share Posted April 25, 2009 Okay, with my complete newbie hat on... I bought a MIG welder (Sealey 180) second hand a couple of years ago and it's been sat in my garage doing nothing since then. Had a play when I first got it and found the wire wasn't feeding properly, but have only just got round to investigating properly. Turns out there are a couple of blockages in the plastic conduit the wire runs in. Other than that, all looks in good order. So, just need to work out what bits I need to buy. I think I've worked out that the conduit is called a liner? There seem to be both plastic and steel coil versions - bizarrely I can find the steel coil ones cheaper. Obviously plastic will fit as that what it had, would a steel coil one fit and if so would it be any better? Does the plastic type come in different internal diameters like the steel coil? I'm also going to need to get a gas bottle and a regulator - any recommendations for the regulator? Planning on finding a local place I can walk into and ask for advice, but I'd quite like to have some idea first... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
