    I put a switch on the wire feed of my MM175, I kinda like it. Never put one on the PM215 tho. I get by fine either way. Nice little option but not essential.

    And now you know better! :-) It's what Hobart calls their setting to allow for the setting of the gas flow. I didn't make it up. No matter the purpose, it does "purge" the gas.

    Exactly how I feel about it. If I can quickly isolate the drive roll motor connection, I'll do it. If not, I won't. And I'm pretty sure I'll be fine either way too. :-)

    whenever i need to mess with the gas i just flip the spool gun switch which turns the wire off. of course that still requires opening the side and can be annoying in tight spaces but generally not an issue for me
