delkeen 5pts Just need to note that while according to your article, the Eastwood 175 only handles 2 lb spools of wire, you actually have an 11 pound spool installed in one of your photos, with the adapter as it is included with my Eastwood 175! So, you may want to correct that error. Also, while you're at it, you should note that the welder chart indicates that it can use .35 solid and .35 flux core wire. It is not equipped to handle .45 flux core. Again, your article stated that the largest diameter wire it would run would be .30.Not sure about where the confusion came from, but both of these corrections point to a more versatile unit. And no, I'm not an employee of Eastwood; just an owner of the 175.
