I am new here , so bear with me..
I have the opportunity to get a (used, very little) miller matic 250X Mig Welder..

I would like to get some ideas on the good, the bad, and the uglies about this machine.

I can get it from a gentleman(neighbor) that bought it in 1999 and hasn't had hardly any use..

I'm certainly not a certified welder,but am dangerous enough to get by...
Anyway, I know that 250$ is a Steal on this machine..He gave over $1900 in 1999.

I would appreciate any ideas on what trouble(if any) to expect from it..Thanks a lot to all..Trav.
