Ok. I'll take a crack at answering this. I pretty much agree with what TrePaul said. If you don't see any sort of Gas Input on your welder more then likely it won't work with anything other then Flux Core wire.
Any welder I've worked with has a gas input that you simply connect a hose to from the tank which gets tied to the gun. Now I've mainly worked with Millermatic 252s and 350s so a different level then this.
Can you describe more where you got the welder? Do you see any Manufacturer information on the welder or model numbers? I've did a quick search and found this:
Amazon.com: Campbell Hausfeld WF2150 Flux Core Wire Feed Welder: Home Improvement
Which appears to be designed only for Flux Core. But again, we need some information about the Welder in general to really help out.
You could also try out forums like OFN (Offroad Fabrication Network
) and see if they can help. But again, they will probably ask a lot of the same questions.
My guess though would be it won't work with gas. You'll need a new welder.
Did some more searching and found this:
As you can the 1st link there is the MIG version of their welders. It already has a built in Gas valve.
The 2nd link is the Flux Core verison. It can't use Gas.
