    Hi, Anyone have images of what the spool and wire feed should look like please ?
    The second hand 130 unit I just purchased looks very awkward, pulling the wire from the spool at an angle. Also can I fit a 5kg spool to this machine ?
    Thanks.

    I assume that from your question on the 5Kg spool that it has the smaller <1kg spool loaded which will give a very odd angle up to the feed unit. The pic attached is with a 5Kg loaded. (Google image search is your friend ;)).
    Note that Cebora migs were sold by Snap on with there branding
    And welcome BTW :hug:

    Is this a late manafacture model, my Cebora Turbo 130 internals looks different.
    The drive mechanism is different & the cover case has no hinges just a location tab & screw closure.

    Thank you for your help so far. Sorry about multiple images. Seems I have a smart phone but a dumb operator. any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Yes it does look a poor angle. Considering these machines are designed round hobby use and there fore use of the small spools you would have thought the positioning would have been better. But it might not of allowed for 5kg spools to fit. Machines like the Portamig (much bigger machine have an adapter to take them DOWN to a smaller spool. It is an arm that attaches to the spool holder and if I recall puts the small spool in a better position.
    You could get the machine up and running to make sure it's all ok, then invest in a 5kg spool (just keep moisture out as its gutting to scrap a near full 5rkg spool and then you can put the small spool in a plastic bag with some of the decadence sashes and have it for emergence use.

    you coild put a runner over the top of the spool to lift up the wire so it runs more parallel.

    I've refurbished 3 cebora 130's over the last 18 months, My experience of them:

    Run a 5kg spool, the angles are much better
    Fit a steel liner to the torch (net curtain track)
    Change the ground clamp for something decent

    Then they weld really nicely with zero feeding issues.

    To fit a 5kg spool to that machine you will need an outer flange adapter plate (piece of stepped plastic with a hole in the middle) and a compression spring. I assume those are in your parts bag somewhere?

    To me it looks as if that machine has been modified to allow bigger spools to feed better.
    Do any of the bolts line up with the hole pattern above to bring the spool higher up, giving a better feed off angle?

    That's exactly what they are supposed to look like guys, they're all setup like that.
