Default E316lto-1?

So I picked up another Cobramatic push-pull system. The one I have works great with aluminum, but is in REAL rough shape. This one is in really NICE shape. I never thought there would be anything in it but aluminum wire, but it turns out I got a 25lb spool of(.45) 316. Is there any reason I would hang on to it? I can count on one hand how many times I've welded stainless, and I used stick to do it.

The law of improbabilities means that you always need something just after you have chucked it out.

I do more S/S TIg'ing than Al or steel etc. I keep a few rolls of two different type. Wire does just fine with my machine.

I might be interested if you want to rid yourself of shelf clutter.

I'm guessing you got a fair deal on the gun.

I am a cheapass, so yeah, I done good. I never thought about just leaving it sit and not having it rust hahaha!


LW, got any interest in the stainless spool and a cheap push-pull in rough condition?

How cheap on the push pull gun? Pm me with details. I will have to check to see if it would work with what I have. (Powcon)
