    Default Financing A Welder

    Does Miller offer financing or do the local weld shop/stores offer this? Thinking about getting a welder/Gen but don't want to put out 3K all at once, need to keep some $$ too buy steel.

    Or you can "rat hole" alot of your money into your taxes (claim 0 on your exemptions and an extra $10/day ) and get a Syncrowave 200 and All the things you need to grind , cut , clean etc... and some steel and aluminum and stainless !!!!!!!!!

    Well guys, none of the above. I'm just a poor dumb part time farmer that needs a welder, would like to start new and have it last 30-yrs. Can't really start a business with it (too many other welders in the area not making a living). I'm needing to build a power screen for gravel and loam, I have most everything that I need for materials except some sheet stock. Also will need it for many other projects as time goes on. The way I look at it, I could hire it out @ $40-50 an hr. or take that $$, buy a welder, learn how to weld and do my own welding for the rest of my life.

    do some welding for a man and fix his stuff
    teach a man how to weld and he will collect all kinds of crap off the side of the road and burn himself constantly

    To get back to the original question............most big national welding suppliers offer financing; from Airgas to MaineOxy/SpecAir in your area. Terms and such sometimes really good; sometimes you'll do better on a personal loan at your bank or credit union. Lincoln offers a really good program with Lincoln Electric Capital............not sure if Miller has a similar program or not.

    Airgas/Miller will lease to own to businesses only. It's a fairly good deal if you qualify and can afford the 12+1 plan. Divide the full cost by 12 and that's your payment each month - make one extra payment at the end of 12 months, and you own it. That was the deal a couple years ago when I looked into it. I ended up getting a personal 3yr loan (lower payments). If you lease from Miller for a longer than 1 yr, than it's not such a good deal anymore - bank loans are cheaper long term.
