Lots of torches are fairly universal and you are likely to find it cheaper to replace only the parts needed if you can find them - manufacturers tend to prefer to sell the torch (or gun) complete with the hose, cables and sheath and they are expensive though considerable savings can be made dealing with factors or independent supplier/repairers.

Most professional mig welders over here use the euro torch and when a welder doesn't have one and the torch is ready for replacing it is a worthwhile modification, especially if the necessary parts can be sourced secondhand or salvaged.
The euro torch just plugs into the machine and once the machine has been modified there are plenty of usable secondhand ones about that can be had for a song.

If you aren't conversant with the euro torch, try a search...

You can buy liners for torches from most welding suppliers, if the torch is very old, it may be time to update.

SOURCE: Have a Hobart Beta-Mig 170 Wire will not feed

First make sure the nozzle tip is free of any debris and the wire will slide easily. Lift the case and go to the wire feed unit. Loosen the pressure nob then lift up to release the pressure wheel. Make sure the bottom wheel ( should have two grooves, one for .35 wire and the other for 025 wire.) Make sure the Wire Feed Tip is also free and it allows the wire to pass through. Pass the wire through the feeder across the drive wheel and into the hose. Allow the pressure wheel to drop, then lift the pressure know to the upright position. Turn clockwise to put tension on the wheel. Make sure the gas is OFF, turn power on, depress trigger switch. This should allow the wheel to turn and feed the wire.

Bob,

Those parts have long been discontinued. www.usaweld.com might have an adapter kit if you have a piecemaker 14A gun, or they have a complete replacement welding gun.

I have a hobart beta-mig 170 welder that I just put a new wire feed motor on but still won't work. The old motor I could tap on every now and then until it just quit. Any ideas?


Check the Switch on the handle. Many times the two wires from the trigger down to the Mig Unit break or get a bad connection

I have an older Hobart beta mig II welder and the drive motor does not work when trigger is pulled. any ideas


Hi:

have you tried to by-pass the gun switch by disconnecting the gun cable (not the lead) and using a paper clip to by-pass the gun?. If the motor turns then you need to replace the gun switch if not probably the PC board fuse it's blown.

I will make about 12 3" passes over 3" square


Nothing's wrong with your gun or machine. Your unit has a duty cycle of 20 percent at 90 amps, meaning that it will work (weld) great for 2 straight minutes and then it needs to cool down for 8 minutes. The duty cycle it is measure in 10 minutes lapses.
All you need to do is to let it cool down, and start again. That's all.

Welding aluminum and wire keepscoming out of rollers


your hobart machine it's not suit up for standard aluminum welding, the lenght of the gun it's too long therefore the wire will nest at the drive rolls. You need to buy a spool gun. Or change gun liner for a teflon one (instead of metal one), then change the drive roll for knurled ones and finally oversize your tip if you can. No need to do ALL this if you buy a spool gun.
