I suppose its because I have already perchased the machine why make the parts readily available.

    i have a squarewave 255 (10 years old) and a lincoln 100 wirefeed (5 yrs old and home depot bought). both have been excellent machines. in my opinion this is just another ford/chevy/dodge debate. i do know that an idealarc of that vintage is not worth 3500$. even with the hf. i wouldnt pay more than 800-1000$. a brand new syncro 250 with a cooler could be had for 3500$. you can watch ebay and find mid '90's syncro 300's for under 2,000$. if you want a welder, sell your truck out right, get what you can, and buy what you want.......................................as to the blue,red,grey debate, i have guys lined up to buy my squarewave 255. which is not for sale, alot of people feel this is one of the nicest tig machines built

    Looks like a statistically sound sample to me... an example in a logics class I had many years ago "all Indians walk in single file, at least the one I saw did". Any of the majors, Miller, Lincoln, Hobart etc build mostly good with a few lemons.

    Mac, I see you have a 460 Ford ... Great truck from Canada, eh, mine is a 1996 F250 supercab, short box w/60,000k on it.

It lasted in my driveway all of two months before they got it, so I figured I'd go back to Fords, go figure.
    In New Mexico? Though I do remember driving down the entire length of the state without seeing a single law-enforcement officer of the non-border-patrol type. Well it wasn't so much driving as it was flying really low...

    Mine's a year older, I put the 110,000th mile on it this afternoon. F-250 Supercab with the long bed, only 2WD.

    Wow : Times are really getting bad when you have to make a decision on buying a vehicle based on who will and when it will be stollen .

    Miller guy here for sure, but there are some seriously fine machines out there with red paint jobs. Lincoln has all but owned the pipelining industry (not exactly warehouse production-line environment...) and is the still the only serious DC generator manufacturer. Ones built in the 60s are still in high demand.

    Lincoln welders may be good when new but they don't last like miller welders!

    Just remember this if you decide to swap. The lincoln is one of the hardest machines to get parts for I have delt with them for years and it always take about 5 calls & 2mnths for the parts to get to my door step so if the machine is not in the best of shape don't go there.Besides if you can make that kinda money on the truck I'd hold out for a better swap.

    P.s with miller I get my parts within a week or less.

    If you can see rust on the outside, the coil could be in pretty bad shape.
