JEGS 555-81541 Welder Features:
Two Welders in One
- MIG: The wire feed welding technique can provide a strong weld for even very thin metals which makes MIG welding ideal for assembling and repairing the body and or interior of any vehicle.
- Supports both 11 lb. and 2 lb. wire reels with either 0.030 in.-0.035 in. welding wire
- Welds up to 3/16 in. thick material
- Requires shielding gas CO2 or Ar+CO2-mixed gases (not included)
- Welding voltage and wire feed speed are adjusted with one control according to the thickness of the welded sheet
- Arc: The arc electrode welding technique is the most economical welding method that provides the ability to create a good bond on rusty or dirty metals by melting the metal at the point of contact. It's used for welding thicker metals of 1/16 inch or greater such as tubing or frame rails.

What kind of plug will I need in my shop
if I need a replacement tip for the mig gun, where would I get this?
Where can I procure a knurled roller for 0.035" (0.9mm) flux core wire for this machine? The dimensions are 20mm OD, 9mm ID, and 12mm wide. The roller appears nearly identical to the one used on the Eastwood 140.
The picture for this item shows an MMA type arc electrode holder. Does that mean this unit is capable of doing arc welding as well?
Is the mig 180 an inverter or transformer based welder?
Will the Eastwood spool gun fit on this welder? It looks like it uses the same standard of connection.
Can this welder handle 1/2 thick metal
Can you mig weld aluminum without a spool gun?
