    Lending out a pipe wrench to the neighbor to fix his sink is one thing. Letting someone take a machine that cost a whole heck of a lot more than a dozen pipe wrenches is another story all together. <br />

    My tool loaning story is similar, but it honestly wasn't the guy's fault. He borrowed my set of cordless tools to do a project. Hurricane Rita came through and flooded his little shop. They were under three feet of salt water for who knows how long. I held on to them for a while planning to rebuild them, but they got in my way one too many times and met the scrap bin.

    I have had no luck lending tools. Some years ago, my former neighbor borrowed my brand new 20 ft.aluminum extension ladder and wouldn't return it even after numerous requests over a period of six months. One day I had had enough and I went to get it. It was covered with spray and roller paint from top to bottom. Then there was the roto-tiller than I lent to my son-on-law. I got that back a year later with a broken gear tooth in the transmission. I scrapped it because there were no parts available.

    It sounds to me like the OP here is owed a new welder by his "friend", This won't ever happen to me because I don't lend tools anymore. BTDT. LOL,

That's the reason I was looking for just the motor.
    Sounds like you now have much bigger issues as a result of this SODA exposure

    Hope your "Friend" is covering the cost of repair.... would not be surprised if you also experienced other corrosion related failures of board.& electronics etc

    Would bet that MILLER has improved the entire assy....

    Not to mention the normal wear and tear on the gearbox & gearset over the years...

    so it is worth your while to spend the $103 for the whole BRAND NEW shebang

    no good reason to be penny wise pound foolish.... $103 sounds like a heII of a deal...

    Here is the whole unit with motor, gears and leads for $103 with free shipping. I bet it will be difficult to source the motor alone.
