Options On Mig Nozzle?

Postby rahtreelimbs » Sat Dec 30, 2017 9:11 pm

I was welding the inside of a 45 degree angle. I needed a lot of stick out as the nozzle was too widee to get in there. Are there any different nozzles to allow me to get in tighter?

yes you can, but that depends on what mig gun you have and if you already have the narrow nozzle.
work out what mig gun you have and search around for nozzles for it.

other options can be to use stick or using self shielded mig wire (especially if you can leave off the nozzle).
tweak it until it breaks

Grind the nozzle into a 45° wedge. Next question.... :D

Those small nozzles are sweet. Used them on a pipeworx system a while back for getting into the root really nicely.

They do need cleaned frequently though.
