What is a Miller Matic 35 worth?

Thinking of replacing my old Miller Matic 35.
I bought it new in about 74, and actually used it very little. I would
estimate no more than 500 hours over the years, tops. Still works as good as
ever, and even has a new Tweco gun with less than 2 hours on it.
How much should it be worth?

Where are you located, and how much do you want for it?
Id not mind having one.
Whatcha want, and what its worth may be different.

Just trying to figure out a fair asking price. It's located in Tulsa, OK.

In excellent shape, around $1000. They are great machines. Nice smooth arc on sheet metal. The current equivalent would be a Millermatic 252.

And don't let them wear you down. Those are GOOD machines, and it sounds like it has a lot of life left in it. Most 35's are worn out from shop use, and one that has been lightly used by a hobbyist like you should be in high demand by someone who knows what they are looking at. Stay firm at $1,000 particularly if you are throwing in any extras.
I'd pay that much for it if I didn't have a new Lincoln. I paid about $750 for that one, and would have happily sprung for the extra for a 35.

Sorry, but I would not consider any of those to be in "excellent" shape.
YMMV.
