Esab TIG welder w/ Lincoln water cooler - $995
Esab DTA 250 um, Lincoln Magnum water cooler, 60% duty cycle,250 amp, comes with cups, collets, electrodes, torch, grounding clamp, all cables and hoses, foot pedal.
They guy who has it says it is a 60-70's vintage welder, he knows the gas valve needs replacing but thinks everything else works - he got it a year ago and never used it as it takes a 90 amp/220v breaker and his house only has 100 service. He says this thing weighs 5-600# so getting it in and out of the truck will be fun. He will hook up a temp connection and porve it will strike an arc before I buy it.
I was looking for one of the newer portable models (60#) but they are pricey and I really don't NEED to move it. I would set up in the garage and leave it there.
What else do I need to know/ask or should I run like hell??
