    Whatever you want, PM me & let me know
    So you're telling me...You're not nostalgic? Then, give me another word for it......

      why would some one post an ad like that, i assume there are patent issues, using miller,s name on a phoney, p,s. how did you know it is fake, i dont keep up on every welder miller makes, i sure would be ripped if i bought a china welder in blue cloths

        Didn't we see this before a year or so ago? Certainly looks familiar for some reason.

          take a close look at the pictures...

          This has got to be a fake, the font and script style of the miller name in the logo is not consistent with the regular style miller uses. It is also all capital letters. The other detail photo of the gun looks like a tweco style gun. I would steer clear of this scam. Maybe its for sale again cause the seller got roasted on the deal. Nothing about this unit looks remotely Miller, just some offshore piece of crap.

            Looks like Miller might have made something like this for companies like MAC tools:

            http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o154405a_mil.pdf

            Note, I still think its a scam - maybe someone scammed the pawn shop. But Miller did make some flux core welders with hi-low switches.

            Then again, we have this:

            I guess it was once a 100Amp unit, just kept burning out, so they re-badge it as a 90Amp unit

              The Miller logo doesn't look quite right to me

              Is it just me, or does something about the logo on that machine look a little "off"?

                  Never one to let a windmill go untilted at I have sent the following question to the seller of this item. I will post any answer which I get.

                  Sir:
                  Miller Electric Manufacturing does not list this welder on their web site. To my knowledge they have never made a welder of this size. Can you confirm that this is in fact made by Miller? It looks to me to be a knockoff infringing on the Miller trademark.
                  Thanks,
                  Ken

                    If you follow the link I put up earlier, Miller did indeed make a small welder like this and it was sold by Mac Tools.

                          Yes they did but they labeled it as a Mac tools welder not a miller welder...

                            This reply came in shortly after my question...
                            Hi Ken, You may be right. I can't find anything on it either. I am at home right now, but as soon as I get to work, I am going to call Miller just to be sure. If this is not a Miller model, I will end the auction. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, John

                              And people get upset with me when I question the "Chinese Marketing" that goes on on this and WW.

                              Don't really care if they choose to sell their junk to unsuspecting newbie's (they'll learn) but when they claim "Just as good as Miller, Lincoln, etc., and 1/3 the price", it makes the hair stand up on my neck.
