MK Products' Sidewinder™ Mini-Spool™ gun with small diameter wire feeding capacity is suitable for aluminum GMAW.
Weighing 26 oz. with the wire spool, the ergonomically designed gun is simple to maneuver, the company reports. A patented spool and brake system distributes wire uniformly.
A patent-pending quick-release feature allows quick wire spool changes with no tools and requires no additional settings or adjustments. A built-in gas valve facilitates simplified connection to most welding power sources without complicated purge time control circuitry.
The gun also features a knurled drive roll for positive welding wire engagement. An open/close drive roll cover protects the welding circuit and drive rolls from dust and other debris.
