Better than new!
I got this replacement gun for my 35 year old Century 135GL, the difference is remarkable. I have been struggling for a long time with the stock gun having to squeeze really hard to get full gas, and now realize it’s never been very good. The HTP gun is so amazing, very light touch and full gas flow creates a perfect shield for the arc and the beads I can lay down are the best this machine has ever done, I thought it was just a weak machine, but it was the gun all along. So, as if the performance alone wasn’t enough, the added length changes the whole experience, no more moving the welder cart around big projects, the 10’ length means I can easily walk around the big projects which has sped up production immeasurably. I just finished a series of ladder-like frames out 16 gauge 1x1 square tube, I finished so quickly I kept checking to make sure I actually hit all the joints, I couldn’t believe it went so fast.
Very pleased, great costumer service and prompt delivery!
Carl's review of the 10' Tweco Mini MIG style (150A) welding gun (Made to replace Chicago welding guns).
Item worked, but the nozzle connection to the gun tends to come loose. It being right-hand thread, but the gun connection being left-hand thread, makes it difficult to tighten and keep tightened. This is a poor design, and the engineering should be reconsidered. Otherwise, I am satisfied with the product.
10 foot gun
Way better than the four foot lead that was on there before.
I had an excellent experience. Timely shipment and exact fit for replacement parts
