    So we are in the shop today doing a little fab work and all of a sudden the wire was not feeding, yes the spool had wire. Checked continuity of the trigger wires and nothing. Broken wires somewhere internally on the lead. So cut the wires on each end and wired in my own external wires and yes! all up and running. Saved me a trip to buy and MIG gun and lead.
