          My 2 cents worth!?!

          Just purchased a Millermatic 210 with spoolgun and tanks from my local authorized Miller dealer. Got a better price than cyberweld and after tax it is a wash. Did my dealer loose money on me, of course not, and the people who run the store actually weld and are very helpful. And past experience tells me that paying a few bucks less for such an expensive piece of equipment to get local support and help and be put in front of your machine you bought on the web if I ever need service. Before you tell me that is not the way it works, just think how your local dealer feels when you bring a machine in under warranty and he knows you did not even give him the chance to give you a good deal. (You know this is the way it works even if you will find no one to admit it.) Just my thoughts on the subject. I know this is a late post, but I just became a member to this forum and was reading this post and had to chime in! In my experience if you give the local guy a try and are not trying to buy one low priced thing, but a major purchase, they will give you a deal if they can. Or maby your local guy is a jerk, then by all means buy online and then find a different gas supplier!!!!

            I went to three seperate dealers with in my area, none would come of the quoted price. In short I was fully disappointed in the dealers lack of interest in making me a customer. Cyberweld's prices were the best so I went with them and would purchase from them again.

              Some dealers don's get it!

              Sorry to hear that your dealer was unwilling to cooperate. Had a dealer like that in the last city I lived in. But that city was big enough to have more than one welding supply and I found one that was willing to work with me. It amazes me that dealers don't get it. They make money on consumables and gas and could afford to give you a great deal on the welder. My dealer is fairly high volume for the small area I live in lots of farmers and ranchers and several aluminum boat builders buy from this shop. My dealer has one more loyal customer, I plan to buy a plasma cutter in the next year or two and will give my dealer an opportunity to make me a great deal on that too!!

                All in all it was a very disappointing dealing with the local sales people. Sales must be way up or their business is stricky large volumn commerical shops. Now I just go to the closest store to buy my consumables, no loyality to any one store...I'm glad your experience was a good one.

                  Well said Ale Master. You should always try the local guy before making a major purchase. By doing so you find out if the local guy is worth patronizing and you also send the message you preferr to support hiom than someone in cyberspace you don't know from adam.
                  Good luck with your new welder.

                      Ordered a plasma cutter from cyber weld. It works fine. Was truck shipped. I agree, I would rather buy from a local vendor but $300.00 is alot and no tax, free shipping. Sorta like buying lumber from Home depot instead of your local hardware store. Sometimes they just cannot compete

                        Home depot, yuck! But I end up going there anyway myself. I've been lucky having good local dealers for gasses and welding supplies close by, like Harris Industrial Gasses, and Barnes welding Supply, both of which always come through. Sales tax is a big issue but even with that they can often work with me on the price to take the bite out of it.

                          My point about Homedepot was with lumber, not welding supplies. Although I have bought small pieces of aluminum for a little repair there. I have a good dealer for gas and expedables, they treat me fair but just cannot compete on some things. So........I do as much business with them as I can but when it comes to $300 I have to look elsewhere. They know deal. Example. My father is a Toro lawn equipment dealer, he pays for a Toro push mower what Homedepot sells a toro push mower for. How can you compete with that. Unfortunatley the Home Depots/ Lowes/wal-marts have pushed the small guys out. Sad, but free enterprise I guess.

                            Yep, so very true. I don't mind paying a little more at the little shops but on those big ticket items just the sales tax is a big pop. The only way the little guy can commpete is by giving better service. Example: I have a farm in Oregon and my irrigation system has been giving me fits so I called a guy in Eugene 50 miles away that came highly recomended. The company was named, Pacific Ag Systems, and explamed my problem. Ty, the owner, said, I'll be out your way thursday and can bring what I think you will need, I can also help you check things out. He did, and didn't charge me a dime except for the parts I needed. That happened last year. Last week I went to his store to pick up a presure switch for the irrigation pump and Ty said he owed me money. He asked me if I remembered the extra gaskets I had bought that were wrong for my system, I said no, he said well you did and I owe you for them. I didn't care about the few bucks for those gaskets but Ty did, he remembered and I got my credit. Its good to have local businesses like these around even if it does cost a few bucks more. Well more bucks?? Not sure about that, if you were to put a value on the expertise and assistance they often provide like Ty did above, we may find that it is actually cheaper in the long run. How many times have you gone to HD and bought tons of crap for a job you didn't need? I know I've doen this many times.

                              Interesting you talk about service. Home depot can't fix a thing. Yet they sell them and we're supposed to warranty them. That sucks. Fortunatly most issues with new mowers is the owners own doing so very little is actual warranty. Service is all the smaller shops can do. We have a very good reputation for fixing what others can't [won't] fix so thats where the moneys at. Not cheap mind you, but fixed.

                                Yep, pricey at first glance, but when you add up all the other visits to the shop for help and advice without charge, help which dosen't exsist at HD, makes the cost very cheap in the long run. Not to mention the savings from making fwer trips wasting money on junk you didn't need. Hey, I often will plunk down the extra cash to buy locally just cause of the past help I've gotten free, that is if I have the money.
