How to Change the Cable on a MIG Welder

After suggesting to Longevity that they make a longer cable for their MIG welder, Kevin was pleased to find out Longevity has done just that. In this how-to video, Kevin shows how he removes the 9-foot-long cable on his Longevity MigWeld 250P Mig Welder and replaces it with a 15-foot-long one, feeding the wire through the first and second rollers and into the cable, removing the nozzle and tip, turning down the voltage and turning up the wire feed all the way, pulling the trigger and letting the wire feed all the way to the tip. He then adjusts the wire, replaces the tip and nozzle, and is ready to go.
