I wouldn't do it...

just IMHO.

Yes, those old machines are made VERY well, but many of them have been overworked, abused, run hard and put up wet for a few decades. It takes its tole on them...

You can get a brand new Hobart Ironman 230, a 250amp machine for $1,539 shipped to your door with that new welder smell, and a warranty.

I know many people swear by these old machines, but still. Theres a lot that can go wrong with anything old, usualy at the worst possible time.

 Re: Just bought a Miller 35 wire welder. in reply to Lanse, 10-30-2012 20:09:05  
Lanse: I already have two newer Miller welders: A 251 and a 252. The Miller 252 is only about three years old an I have already had to replace the circuit board in it once. This is with light shop use not full time welding.

This welder is supposed to have only been used a few times. The seller's Dad bought it new and only used it a few times. The seller has used it on some heavier frame type repairs but his main business ins auto body work and he uses welder that are setup for thinner metal.

I am looking for an old wire welder without all of the electronics that the new welders have on them. I think that these Miller 35 welders do not have any electronics on them. All is diodes and rectifiers. I am not sure of this but that is what I want.

A long gone buddy had a Miller 35 that he used in his weld shop for years and he never had any problems.

That new Hobart welder has that new welder smell but it also is full of electronic crap that can take a dump and become a big paper weight. LOL

Thanks for the reply. I am really looking for some of the older guys that actually ran these welders. I want a good welder on 1/8 to 3/8 thick stuff. I have good stick welders for thicker stuff.
