THYNWOOD........DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANYTHING MILLER OR HOBARTS EVER MADE FOR SNAP ON........WE DID MAKE 1 OR 2 AS I RECALL.........MANY YEARS AGO........PROVIDE A SERIAL NUMBER AND I WILL SEE IF IT IS MILLER/HOBARTS...............ROCK
Well, here's what I could find:
- It uses a Tweco gun.
- My guess is it is made by either Century/Solar or
it could have been made by Telwin in Italy (hordes of welders are made by them and sold under Clarke power products, Chicago electric, even Lincoln at one time (Arcweld 100), etc).
Getting parts could be a problem, but then again it's branded Snap-on. Maybe you could ask Snap-on for a manual, that would clue you in as to their support of the product.

Is that a welder or a soft drink dispenser??? :)
I'm so used to the True Blue, that red is a bit unnerving
Soft drink dispenser? I was think more like a coffee maker. Sorry tynwood just having a little fun, Im not trying to offend you. Rocky D loved your reply had me laughing as soon as I read it.
Sorry tynwood couldn t get me to buy it, any more I pretty loyal to Miller/Hobart when it comes to a MIG machine.
