Pinnacle MIDARC 165 Gasless Combo

I bought the combo from TSA Welding last week and was supplied with 0.9mm welding wire, and not the 1.0mm as per the information provided on the website. Unfortunately I only noticed this during the installation of the gasless wire over the weekend. When I removed the wire drive wheel to confirm the wire size it was designed for, I saw that it would work for 1.0mm flux core or 0.8mm solid welding wire. My first though was, "No problem, I'll just get a the correct drive wheel from TSA Welding this week".
After discussions with TSA Welding regarding the problem, I was informed that they don't have the 0.9mm drive wheels but will confirm if they are able to get me one and offered to exchange the 0.9mm for 1.0mm wire. Nice gesture, but it still did not solve my problem. Later it was confirmed by TSA Welding that there are no other wire drive wheel available for this welding machine, which limits your choice to only one diameter of flux core wire, 1.0mm.
The TSA Welding website clearly states that the Pinnacle MICARC 165 is suitable for 0.6mm, 0.8mm, 0.9mm and 1.0mm welding wire sizes. This might be true, but I find this misleading if TSA Welding are unable to sell you the drive wheel that you will need for the different size wires.
Mark me down as disappointed. If a part as small as drive wheel is not available, I am definitely concerned if something else need to be replaced in the near future.
When you purchase a product from a supplier, you expect them to carry small spare parts in stock to cater for the welding machine capabilities they list in their website.
I would not have been so eager to make the purchase if I knew I was going be disappointed three day after I bought the combo.
