    hi dane here,

    i have a question for you concerning my rechargeable 130amp 24V DC machine, maybe you can help.
    i have a matco tools WFW2135 wire feed FCW, welder.
    im not getting consistent current to the torch, motor runs very slow, no start just a blast flash and thats it no bead, cold.
    im thinking a bad rheostat and or bad resistor for rheostat, only thing theres no info on the rheostat or resister
    you can see both in the pick ive provided thanks for any help.
