  • Miller model 102 info needed

    I have an old Miller model 102 ser # 21,823. Was stored in a warehouse for many years and seems to be complete. Does it have any value other than scrap?

        Any information is appreciated.
        Would like to see it go to a user or collector rather than scrap. Kirby

            That would make a nice museum piece. I just was in Macon Ga picking up a Basset Hound. Road trip. How much?...Bob

              That's what I was thinking, doing a full restoration and using it as a display item. Dave

                    Do not know if it works. Came from a cotton gin that closed in the 60's and has been in dry storage since.
                    Don't know what a reasonable price is so make me an offer, email khayes@netcommander.com
                    Thanks Kirby

                      Man, that thing may be older than my westinghouse, lol. Those old machines like that are almost indestructible. Most likely the only moving parts are the screw that raises and lowers the coil, the pointer and the fan. The fan can be replaced.

                      The second time I toasted the 400 amp miller my boss assigned me a machine that I and I alone could use. It was the biggest lincoln shop machine I have ever seen, was so old all of the lettering was gone, he said it was built in the early thirties, he started the company with it, and he wanted to see me try and burn it up. They still use that machine daily.

                      I'm not working on a museum, but I am getting a pretty fair collection of old cutting equipment, and have an old 400 amp ac westinghouse. Aw heck, I might do the museum thing myself.

                          Screw drive and pointer do move (knob is gone) but haven't plunged in to see if anything else works.
                          Pictures were posted on 8/2.
