    Am I right in thinking you have to reverse the poles when using flux cored wire?

    Yes, polarity has to be reversed.

    Better read the destructions then. I don't see a way to do it and there isn't a switch I can see either.

    Learning curve like a shuttle taking off.

    On my MIG (Hobart 210MVP), wires are swapped on the inside of the unit, under side cover next to wire spool.62583293_1.jpgunnamed.jpg

    Same as the Sealey unit I saw, with the output cables attached to the underside and the supply cables swapable on the outside, (or visa versa?)

    I just got a message from the seller's technical team saying there is no polarity changing on that model but is on the 185 model (at 320€) so they have advertised it incorrectly as a gas / no-gas model. I will either have a problem returning it and upgrading at extra cost or adapting the one I got with a couple of binding posts and some cable.

    Something like this.welder mod.jpg

    That's a shame Peter, life is never simple. Surely you can return on the basis on incorrect advertising.....then hunt for cheaper alternatives?

    I have just sent them a suggestion, or three, excluding where to shove it. I have also informed them of their 'listing error' which they have acknowledged.

    I could have bought a gas only model for 30€ less in the first place but Brett said go for gas so I went for what I thought was a dual model.

    I said I could;

    1, Refuse delivery from DHL who will send it back up the line and demand a full refund including shipping.

    2, Look at it, see if I can do a mod and if not send it back at their expense, as I can reclaim return shipping under PayPal rules, (bottom left of info).

    Binding posts, cable and ring terminals and a knurled wheel would be about 10€.

    Really a pain in the bum when people don't even know what they are selling, in this case their own equipment but I have learnt a lot about MAG/MIG, TIG etc in a week.

    Change the one coming (110€) to dual cost 30€ more for parts or return and get gasless one 30€ less (80€)
