  • Balling on a budget

    Looking for a cheap bare bones power source. Preferably under $1000. Something 220/1ph or convertible. Bidding on an xmt350 Thurs, not having high hopes nor do I really want to gamble on a machine that I have no way of knowing if it functions. I have plenty of access to leads and feeders etc.

    ​​​​​Is the auction route my best or only bet?
    Any pointers or links appreciated.

    Decide on what you want and be patient if you’re looking on the used market. It will pop up, so wait for your deal.

      Craigslist & Facebook Marketplace always have dozens of welders. Be very well informed. More welders being sold on these sites are nothing you'd want.

          Found that out the hard way, I'm afraid to report...

          I know it was a bonehead move, I guess I just expected IronPlanet to be a little better than hosting a giant crapshoot. Is what it is. Plan on doing the little I can to cut my losses. I'll spread the message about IronPlanet and the next 5 Ben Frank's will go first few months pmt on a new one. It's only money.. The Gov prints it everyday!

                  A 2015 xmt350. I'm not exactly sure what the tech said failed pre power check. He estimated repair was $3k
