Default Westinghouse SP9 spoolgun questions...

Hi members,

I am trying to put an old Westinghouse SP9 spoolgun back into service. To make it short, I found a brand new spoolgun and controller but the wiring was rotted. It had been in storage for about 30 years. It still had the inspector's tags on it.

I replaced the cabling for a 10 foot section but found that the one I used (it has six separate stranded wires in it was one gauge too heavy and I can't get the handle to close up as seen in the picture. I will have to change out the wiring again with a lighter gauge.

In addition I need a source for the tips and nozzles. Does anyone know of a source for the control cable. The supply house I bought the 10 foot section is no longer in business?

Finally, I'm looking for a parts gun. Anyone have one of these or know of a possible source for one?

Thanks for any help,
