I have a question for you all, hope someone can help. I found a local guy selling an old Syncrowave 250 for $1000. The unit looks "well used" as in it is sort of beat up a bit but he offered a money back if doesn't work. The serial # on it is KE638479.
I looked it over and it seem OK, if dirty but it's missing the Tig torch and foot remote. It looks like I can buy this stuff new, which is nice. Seems like Miller support older machines so I can replace whatever it needs.
Looking at used units this seems like a good deal but I'd like some opinions from someone else. If it works OK would this be a good deal? What should I look for to determine if it's messed up (the top of the welder is rusty, which makes me think it was left outside at times).
I realize that's tough to ask without looking at it but any help is appreciated.
Also, there is a weird hand held Mig gun with it where the wire spool goes in the gun made by Profax model AEC-200. What's this? Is it parts for some other machine or some aftermarket thing to use with the Miller.
