How to Set Up a Stud Gun for Welding CD Studs with a B Stop
This setup works for Truweld, Proweld, Midwest Fasteners, Erico, H.A. Jones, SWS stud welder guns.
PARTS YOU WILL NEED:
STEP 1: Cut the Universal "B" Stop to the length necessary based on the length of your stud. For a 1/2" stud, cut the stop so that 1/4" of the stud is in the collet and 1/4" is protruding. You want to get as much of the stud into the collet as possible but you need at least 3/16" sticking out.
STEP 2:Place the Universal "B" Stop inside the collet, then install the collet in the gun shaft. Tighten the set screws.
STEP 3: Screw the legs into the foot.
STEP 4: Slide the foot piece assembly (CD foot and 2 CD Legs) into holes in the face plate. Line up the legs so the legs lines up with the face plate. Adjust so the CD stud sticks out past the foot 3/16" (the plunge). Tighten the set screws in the face plate.
