I've come across a Colbramatic unit and don't really know anything about it. Would someone explain what/how it is used and what other type of equipment is necessary to use it.
I can get it for cheap.

This is an older one. I assume it hooks to some other sort of welder. What kind of welder could that be?

They are for weak wire that does not push through long MIG feed equipment, like aluminum, they are lighter and more compact than spool guns.

But it must need to hook to a welder (power supply), What kind? Does it have to be a MIG?

Can a stick welder be used for the power source?

No, definitely not, it needs a MIG power supply

So, would this work with a Eastwood MIG 250? Would it be as good/better than a spool gun?
Thanks
