you know what i might think of trying ..... get the bottle of gas ... fckin borrow one if u can .... and wire a piece of brass tubing to the side of the tip of the migwelder and bend it so its aiming right at the weld center

brass wont let slag stick to it, and if u just run rubber tubing w/ a valve in it, u can manualy operate the gasflow ...... if u can set it up like that, lay some weld on scrap and then take the scrap to a race shop that DOES mig welding, ask them how good the welds look .... im sure u wont weld at THEIR level, but that can tell u if it will hold up well of not

*** seen in my gargage 3rd grade drawing below ... the red is the "sheilding gas nozzle" with the gren the manual valve strapped to the torch unit

(yea i know ... bad art ... effe everyone that wants to mock it)

My dad asked around and found nothing. I am going to look into united Rentals, and start saving my money for a low end lincon, hobart, or other true mig welder! Stay tuned as I plan to rent the welder friday through Sunday!

Here is what I have and I love it.

Welder
Kit
Cylinder
Harbor Freight's version - I wouldn't hesitate to get this one but my Lincoln was on sale so I got it instead.
HF doesn't list the gas kit on their web site but it is probably equally bargain priced.

There is a solenoid valve build into the welder that is actuated when you pull the trigger on the welding wand. Shielding gas from the cylinder is fed through the regulator, down the hose and to the solenoid. When you pull the trigger to weld, the solenoid opens, and gas is fed down the dual purpose welding lead (wire and gas both are fed down that conduit) to the welding head and is blown concentrically around the wire as it feeds into the weld puddle, protecting the weld from oxygen. When you release the trigger, both gas and wire feed stop. You also need a different welding tip on your wand than you have now. The MIG tip is a screw-on copper 'tube' with a Teflon lining that guides the gas all around the wire.
