I am trying to decide on what would be better long term for durability an older style miller matic 250 with analog dials or an newer stye digital display miller matic 251 or 252 mig welder? A friend of mine just bought an older style millermatic 210 over the new 212 because he thought that the circuit board repairs would be expensive when the welder gets some rough treatment over the years.
any feedback on the pros and cons of old school versus new style 250 series welders would be appreciated.
thank you for your consideration
