    I offered a guy $50 for a broken Mig welder he was asking $400 for. $400 was a reasonable price for the same welder if it wasn't broken. I figured I could afford to lose $50 in case I couldn't fix it but I wasn't going to chance $400 on it. He said he'd rather part it out than sell it for $50. Like anyone would want parts from his lower end broken welder. My guess is it never sold. Maybe we don't see all the broken ones because people just have them stuck in the back room collecting dust.

    Ebay has plenty of broken high end welders for sale for crazy prices. I wonder if they ever sell?

    My local CL has a couple decent welder for sale for a decent price.

    Like this one. Doesn't seem like a crazy price.

      Are you a real person? Every one of your posts has been a cut-and-paste advertisement that wasn't relevant to the thread it was in......

                  I see them every so often. I had never seen a broken Thermal Arc 300 AC/DC until a couple weeks ago and scooped it up. Same with a Lincoln Invertec V350/Power Wave 355. I have seen a lot of XMTs, usually at decent prices ($300 and under). And many POWCONs of all sorts. For the ones I have fixed it's more often a power component (capacitor, rectifier, IGBT) that needs replacement than a board.

                  What I have noticed more often is if I fix one and put it up for sale (I always disclose I did the work), I have one or two folks ask me to rebuild theirs. So I think part of it is they're holding on to it in the case they can find a way to repair it cheaply - lots invested.

                      You run across the right Powcon I’m looking for John, you know the type, give me a ring. You seem to see more of them than I do. I’ve only seen them on eBay.

                        Ryan, there are two in my garage, one's a 400SMT a buddy gave me for fixing his. I'll let you know when I get it together.

                          I’m in for it. That is precisely the machine I want.

                            You probably have to look it up by serial number but the manual I looked a shows HF start. It's a transformer based machine with triacs instead of IGBT's.

                                I'm leery of anyone that replaced a Miller Syncrowave with an Everlast. Something doesn't add up there.
                                he replaced it with an everlast 252 mti......3000 dollar machine that does it all

                                i guess i was just asking if 1300 was too much for a used syncrowave 210....thanks
