    Default Miller Millermatic 212 (used), should I buy?

    I'm going to look at a used Millermatic 212 with a 150CF Tank tomorrow. I have been looking for a 180 or 211. I don't need dual voltage, 220 Single Phase is fine. It's in great shape, only about a year old. Does this sound like a good deal for $1175? (I am fairly new to welding, and the 212 will definitely work for everything I'm planning on welding).

    I definitely want a Miller with Auto-set, I have talked to a lot of welders and most seem to agree that Miller makes excellent welders.

    Price is too high, a new machine from cyberweld would run you $1074.00..And thats delivered to your door.

    You could purchase a cylinder for 2-3 hundred dollars, or rent for dollars a month.

    you should get a better deal for used.

    Yep, me too, the 212, is great machine, very relable, and should last for many years without a hiccup. Thats a great price.!

    Thanks for the advice. I forgot to add that it also includes a Miller auto-Darkening automatic helmet. If it didn't include the tank and helmet, I would probably buy a new 180 or 211.

    Go for it. I have had my 180 for years now and it never lets me down. Great arc, enough power for me as I do projects 1/4" and below. With all the accessories that sounds like a great deal.
