Iggify it! Place your focus on the central piece of machinery. You can always pick up a cooler, foot pedal, and "stuff" at a good price and customize your own package. Doing that will give you a knowledge of your equipment that you don't get when you just buy it all and plug it in.

LTL curbside delivery shouldn't be "too" bad. Call around for freight rates while you have that phone out.

I found a syncrowave 250 on proxibid but I can't find anything to tell me if it is even located in the USA. Is there a way to tell the location of an item I'm interested in bidding on if it's close enough?

The "Return to Catalog" button gives a page that says Midland MI. Bob

Don't use cloronated solvents, like brake cleaner. Use alcohol, or acetone.
AC current and a good brushing should do it. Keep your brush clean, use it on aluminum only.

I have some MEK at the shop, would that work? What I've read is that it's similar to acetone but slower drying.
Thanks for the tips, I bought a new wire brush to use on aluminum only.

I never use proxibid for this reason alone.

Here's the best price I have found so far on a Miller Syncrowave 250 DX in my area (less than 100 miles), I'm more tempted to buy one of these brand new than buying a used package for $1850.

I could use the torch and water cooler from my old machine, I would just need a new or used foot pedal. Anyone know of a better price? I thought I would see if my closest supplier would match the best price I can find.

I looked on ebay and was kind of shocked. Economic recovery is underway. Prices are not what they used to be, maybe 2x higher.

Before you think that...check the number of buyers.
You will find FAR fewer buyers.

I can't say. But I would think that you would want it to dry quickly. What happens to MEK when exposed to hard UV light and heat in the presence of iron?
I understand that brake cleaner can form phosgene gas under those conditions.
