3045 FCThe 3045 FC wire feeder turns power sources such as stick welders and engine drives into welding systems for under $750, according to the company. The light industrial feeder weighs 29 pounds and welds material from 20 gauge to 3/8 inches thick. It runs 0.023- to 0.035-inch solid and 0.30- to 0.45-inch flux cored diameter wires. With an optional gas-solenoid valve, the 3045 FC permits MIG welding with constant voltage machines. It also holds an 8-inch wire spool and adapts for 4-inch spools.
