Getting Craftsman 240/160 amp AC/DC Stick Welder

I placed an order for the Craftsman 240/160 amp AC/DC stick welder this
afternoon and was told I should have it in 7 to 10 days.
Item # 00920674000.
The on line catalog shows it as "Temporarily out of stock for delivery"
and the sales assistant's screen said the same, but when she placed the
order it showed it was available. She also added that this was a
popular item.
Anyway, this welder comes with the wheels and handle that the Hobart
didn't have. Delivered price will be less than $14 higher than what
Amazon.Com will be getting for theirs now that the $25 coupon no longer
applies. The delivered price, to my location, is $393.75 which includes
NC Sales Tax (7%) and TRUCK delivery to the door. Your price could vary
slightly depending on the sales tax rate in your state and your zip
codes relationship to their ship point for your area.
I fully expect this one to arrive in good condition . . . the first time
. . . since it is coming by truck. . . . Not that they don't also
occasionally damage merchandise. :-)

I have no idea. If you go to sears.com and search for that part number it will also give you the manufacturer's part number but I'm not sure that would do ME any good. Perhaps someone else can tell us what it means.
Here, I did a cut and paste. Mfr. model #0-132-002. A search of the web for that number didn't tell me much. I did find BobVilla.com where he uses that as the Craftsman part number. :-)

You may be right. Northerntool.com has a Century that looks very much like the Craftsman one I ordered.
Century 84241 235 Amp AC/DC Arc Welder, Model# 84241 Ship Wt. 117.0 lbs Item# 1647217
They want $430.
