I want to build a Scrambler using aluminum. $3500.00 for a mig welder new stops me in my tracks. So how to save a few bucks to build a boat that is the question. Don't kill yourself's responding to this thread. I'm looking for used welders. I'm just wondering what could be said about the cost of a welder.
Keep your eyes on craigslist and even ebay. I recently saw a Lincoln PowerMig 275 with a 1lb spool gun for $1750.00 on craigslist. I have seen Millermatic 250s with the XA spool gun for $1500.00. Even though the 250 is an older model it is still a tough excellent welding machine,, I like it a lot better than Miller's newer models. The XA spool gun is a very fine gun.
