Miller Spool Mate 200 on Dialarc HF TIG

I would like to transform the TIG into a wirefeed MIG for steel and possibly aluminum, is that possible by using the Miller Spool Mate 200? I think I have the 310 amp model. Please let me know my options if I have any.

ken,

i think it is possible, but not cheap or easy. I think you will need a control box. Even then, you will be very limited on what you can weld because mig machines are constant voltage, and tig stick machines are constant current.

thick aluminum can be welded with mig and constant current but thinner than 1/4" will be a challenge.
