    Saw what looks to be a miller dialarc 250 (not sure) it shows 300A AC and 265A dc on the high low switch. Its serial number is JK (so 1989) and selling for $300 with no leads.

    Yours is 2 years older (JH = 1987), but you have a few advantages:
    -wheels
    -can hold tanks ---- why would you want to hold tanks on a Stick welder???
    -come with tank
    -radiator cooling system
    -Foot pedal -------------- how would this plug in??? Don't think the dialarc has a plug for pedals does it???
    -leads

    So I would think maybe a few hundred more, depending on the condition of the stuff.

    Was this welder being converted to tig with the foot pedal, tanks and cooling system? It lists this welder is capable of tig, but a lot would probably have to be added to make it work I'm guessing.

    As always, a picture is a thousand words.

      SEANS,

      Where are you located? That will determine price almost as much as the condition of the machine.

Size:  108.9 KB at a auction for $753.00. It came with 3 Victor flow meters w/hoses, 2 Weldcraft water cooled TIG torches w/hoses and hookups and a Miller foot pedal w/ all hookups.

            My son, who is a industrial maintenance electrician and welder, tested it and said from what he could tell it looks like the machine was purchased new and was only used as a backup welder and hardly ever used. If you'll notice, the paint isn't even hardly scratched.

            I also have a older model Miller without HF Name:  c88e5b933ffbd359a78571db4a73520d.jpg

Size:  122.1 KB that I bought a couple of years ago for $200.00. It came with 2 50' sections of lead. It's not that nice to look at, but it sure has been one nice sweet running machine.

            I guess the value depends on what someone is willing to pay and what you're willing to sell it for, since, from what I've seen, the price range DOES vary quite a bit, depending on what area of the country you live in.
