  • Miller Dynasty 200 DX for sale

    Nothing like joining a forum, then having to sell my Dynasty, my baby!

    If I've got 80 hrs. on it, I might be surprised. This is just a garage machine, and it's still like new. I had to sell my 125c plasma not long ago. Work has been picking up, but 20 hours a week, just doesn't cut it.

    If you live near Huntington Beach, CA., and are interested, send me a PM.

    I've got 2 80 cf bottles, and a purge regulator, along with the contractor kit. I never got to use the ARC cable. I hate to do it, but times being what they are, I need the money more. Misc. welding rods, stainless, silicone bronze, aluminum, 70 S2, tunsten, wired for 220, and ready to go. You'll need to make pig tail if you want to use it on 110.

    I spent $4600.00, on what I have now, and I'm asking $2500.00. Edited to add, I purchased my Dynasty in 2006.

      It is a real bummer. I'm pretty sure the warranty was only good for 3 years, which is one reason I'm selling it so cheap. I read a long time ago, the inverter board, or what ever, costs about $1000.00 to replace, should it go bad. So I figure even if it does go bad eventually, you've already saved $1000.00. Mean while, the $2500. I get, will be gone in 2 months, if things don't pick up, and I've got nada. Story of my life, as a welder. Layoff, after layoff. Even the place I'm working now, is thinking about selling one of it's machines. It doesn't take long to figure out how much to add on to a new machine, to realize what your really spending.

      Edited to add: I'm off to work, back later.

        This thread sure has a lot of views, considering there aren't any pictures to look at.

        I just took some this morning. Some are good, others kind of fuzzy. At least you can see it still looks like new, because it pretty much is new.

        I've also got some metal I won't be needing now.

          ever give any thought to comin to south louisiana to weld offshore?there are lots of guys that fly in from other states to go out for a month and then take two weeks off and then fly back in for another month .the money is real good and to tell you the trueth you might be out there for a month but when they set the jackets it's a sit down and wait game if they get it stabbed and they get the scafolding setup in time you might be ablt to weld but if not you make 12 hours a day playing cards .then you ride the barge to the next location and start all over again.this might be something that could work for you and you could still keep all your equipment.i was out there one time for 9 days the weather got bad so we just sat tere and rode the waves and played cards.when they finally got the jackets stabbed and setup i got on the scafold and burned one rod then my shift was over and my relief guy came out to take over.when i woke up the next morning they was getting ready to pull anchors and the crew boat was on it's way to pick us up.if there is anyway i can get you some of the company names and numbers you can call them and go from there.

            Tommy,

            You could send me a PM. I appreciate the suggestion. I haven't worked off shore in 25 years, and it was to repair a boiler on a barge. I got sea sick coming back. Most of my welding experience is in aircraft/aerospace TIG welding. I wear contacts, and use a magnifier to weld now. Learned to weld in H.S., and started welding when I graduated in 1973. I welded aluminum external fuel tanks for military aircraft within my first year of welding. Spent a couple of years ARC welding pipe for 2 different boiler companies, but never got certified. Being a welder is a lot like being a doctor, and deciding which direction to go in, I would have done things differently, had I known what I know now.

              man talkin about sea sickness there was one job we went on and the seas got a bit rough about 10' and above .everytime the crewboat would come down off a wave and hit another one it shuddered for a few seconds.we thought that thing was gonna break in two. the boat was about 125' long .well anyways there was this black guy who was braggin about how he did this and done that when we was in the van rideing down to the docks. when we got on that boat and cleared the jetties he went straight to the head and started pukin up his guts.it was about a 6 hour boat ride maybe more cuz the derrick barge with the jacket on it was under tow to the new location and we had to catch it on the run. when we got to the barge they had us pull up on the leeward side of it because it was a bit smoother. they sent the basket down for us and we happily jumped on it but that poor guy nearly had to be carried out the head and placed in the basket. .well when things got underway to do some welding this guy refused to buff or grind his own welds lucjily he wasn't my pardner on the leg i was welding. the barge foreman fired his butt on the spot when he popped up with that attitude.when your sitting on a 12" wide board 100' off the water there ain't no room for a helper the helpers would stay right above us and lower us down what we needed and another helper would man the machine for you and turn it up or down if you needed to.

              i'll get a list of the jobs around here and pm you them.there are some good shop welding jobs and some good stainless tig jobs in the fab yard shops.i'll see what i can dig up for ya.

                  work

                  What's it like working in the ocean never experienced it?
                  How is the rig, mounted solid and steady, I would figure it had to be?
                  Had a chance to do nuke subs once and turned it down back in the 80s wish I wouldhave taken it, now looking for work again.

                    workin affshore is great yes the rigs are solidly anchored to the bottom but in the winter they do sway a little bit.the best job offshore is a welding job. you can go out and hardly do anything the whole time your out there and make good money. there is another good welding job setting casing thats the pipe that they line the wells with for the first few hundred feet or so. back when i done it they paid you 24 hours a day round the clock from the time you left the dock to the time you got back.they pay you stright time no over time but you get paid for the whole day and not jus for 12 hours .the welders get treated like gold out there the gallies look like all you can eat buffets .when you get up in the mornin you go into the galley and the cook ask you what you would like .what ever you want he cooks it for you it's a good place to gain weight thats for sure. i would say the worst job out there is a rig deckhand.they make sure you are worked for the full 12 hour shift ain't no slackin on that job.when i was doing mud loggin work for welco i seen deckhands with puch brooms sweepin water off the rig floor in the pourin down rain.and if it ain't rainin and your not needed on rig floor then your chipping rust and slappin paint on it. the second best job is a fitter but you do a bit more work on that job.now there is work on the production platforms as a meter reader all them guys do is mainly walk around the platform every so soften and take pressure readings. one good thing about out there is the fishing after you knock off in the afternoon they run all the leftover food through a machine that chops it up into 1"cubes .everyone gets their poles ready and the cook comes out and drops it over the side the platform and it's game on buddy.they hooked a hammerhead shark one time and the rig operator had to bring it up in the basket it was about 8' long.i heard they cut it up and the cook fixed it for a meal one night.i left off the rig a day sooner so i can't tell you what shark taste like.but i can tell you this red snapper is great .another thing is when they move the rigs from diferent locations they ussually get a new order of food and sometimes the cook will load you down with roast/brisket.seasonings and just about anything you want just so he ain't gotta pack it up.when i was buiding hydraulic offshore cranes for weatherford i used to take all their offshore jobs just to get out the shop and have some fun.the worst thing about offshore is getting outthere and comin in.sometimes you gotta do the tarzan thing and swing from a rope off the deck of the boat onto what they call the +10 level of the platform thats a tricky thing to do i seen some guys take a swim lol.the helicopter rides are the best ruuf seas on a supply boat or crew boat suck .

                      SOLD!!!!!!

                      I was going to put it on Craig's List, but ended up selling the machine back to the welding supply company I bought it from. He knew it was a good deal, especially since I had them fill a bottle of Argon yesterday.

                      It's bitter sweet of course, but I'm happy I didn't have to put it on Craig's list.
