It is enabled… Continued

New nozzle design from Wire Wizard

Wire Wizard’s PowerBall MIG guns now ships with a new two-piece nozzle design. The gun’s design provides a higher amperage output than traditional air-cooled MIG welding guns, resulting in a lighter weight, energy-efficient torch. Improved conductivity also means less heat build-up in the gun, which reduces spatter build-up on the contact tip and nozzle and reduces burnback.… Continued
