Kiwi,

Take the drive North and I will happliy let you play with my 350P, that
will speed along the purchase cycle. I have a 30A spoolgun for it also.

if you get a chance try the xr alumapro gun with it...

once you do... your 30A will be put in the spare pile...

the 30A is good.. but the xr Alumapro is great!!

I kept my 30A but it is now only used with the TB301G (w/WC24)

the Alumapro is the the answer... for MIG on aluminum with the MM350P...

Ah, Now you gone and done it.. I've never even heard of Pearson.. They make a 600amp clamp like the Tweco/lenco with a larger 4" opening

I all ready have several Lenco and tweco rotary clamps and you went and showed me another variation. Dang nab it..

The hunt is on..

Shade,
That was a kind offer, thanks. I am sure if I used the 350P I would be hooked.

If you can't make it to STW's, I got a MM 350P, so does H80N (along with probably a few others), either one of us would probably be glad to let you give it a spin.


A great machine

All of you guys are awesome and I appreciate the kind offers. I received my Miller ground clamps so as promised here is my review of them. The cost is reasonable $22 each shipped. The have massive clamping pressure as compared to the factory clamp on my MM210 and my MM252. The handles are insulated as opposed to the clamp on my MM210. They appear to have great contact surfaces and a large copper shunt. I will hook them up to my MIG and TIG and let you know how they perform.
