  • Like new Syncrowave 180SD - What's it worth?


    I am new to TIG welding and have been looking at some stater machines. A good friend has a like new Miller Syncrowave 180SD that he is wanting to sell. He said he used it 3 times. I am not needing to weld aluminum any thicker then 3/16" (mainly just automotive inter-cooler piping). What is a machine like this worth?

    Just for reference sake, I just bought a used Syncrowave 180SD that has a gas solenoid problem (gas flow is on always, has to be shut off with a remote switch right now). I paid $550 for it, and I feel like I got a screaming-hot deal, even with the solenoid problem.

      How old is the machine?

        I don't know the age, but Serial # is LC660833

          Not sure on the age or serial number but he said its not that old. It looks brand new. I'll try to get the serial number this weekend. Thanks!

            Looks like yours was made sometime between July 2003 and Jan 2004.

            Look up chart is here:
            View the Miller serial number chart to see when your product was manufactured. Use the serial number and/or the style number to identify the year. Learn more.

              Found another chart that puts it as 2002.

              This was from an old forum post... so I'd probably go with the miller website link above.

              Serial Number Reference Chart
              The first one or two digits of your Serial Number can identify what year your Miller product was manufactured - see the example and chart below.
              A product displaying the Serial Number W-117683 was manufactured in 1970.
              A product displaying the Serial Number JC122376 was manufactured in 1982.
              Cross Reference Chart (Serial Number to Year of Manufacture):
              1960 1961 1962 1963 1964 1965 1966 1967 1968 1969

              1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979

              Every digit of the Serial Number is significant. When ordering replacement parts, Owner's Manuals or any other type of information, always supply the complete Serial Number to ensure accuracy. Some models may use a Style Number rather than a Serial Number. Style Numbers use the same letter designation with a two-digit number. Example: LA-52

                That's fantastic information. Thank you, Clint!
