I regularly get asked “How Much Wire is on a Mig Spool”, so I figured it was time I posted some figures 😀

0.6mm

  • 0.7Kg (1.5lb) Mig Spool = 350M (1148ft)
  • 5Kg (11lb) Mig Spool = 2502M (8209ft)
  • 15Kg (33lb) Mig Spool = 7506 (24625ft)

0.8mm

  • 0.7Kg (1.5lb) Mig Spool = 194M (636ft)
  • 5Kg (11lb) Mig Spool = 1387M (4550ft)
  • 15Kg (33lb) Mig Spool = 4161 (13651ft)

1.0mm

  • 0.7Kg (1.5lb) Mig Spool = 125M (410ft)
  • 5Kg (11lb) Mig Spool = 894M (2933ft)
  • 15Kg (33lb) Mig Spool = 2682 (8799ft)

1.2mm

  • 0.7Kg (1.5lb) Mig Spool = 85M (279ft)
  • 5Kg (11lb) Mig Spool = 608M (1995ft)
  • 15Kg (33lb) Mig Spool = 1824 (5984ft)

All of the figures are based on weighing a sample length of Mild Steel Mig Wire to calculate how much wire is on a Mig Spool.

Figures for Stainless Steel Mig Wire will be similar.
