    I would put the 140 for sale NOW and see what happens. You got nothing to lose. Program good til end of may.
    As far as two machines, depending on your type of projects, set up the 140 with .024 wire and the 211 with .030.
    You can NEVER have too many machines. Ask any of the guys here.

    That is like saying that you can have too many tools... NOT POSSIBLE! On the other hand women can definitely have too many shoes!

    My MUST buy thing now is a great stick welder. While I like having lots of tools, I can't justify to my wife purchasing 2 new welders in the same year.

    So not sure if I want to sell the my barely used 140 if I can't get a new 211 in the same year to replace it. I've seriously only used 1 full 4" roll of flux-core wire and almost a 1/4 of another 4" spool since I bought the thing new summer of 2008. I've never even hooked up the gauges to a bottle, only used for flux-core its whole life. The thing has spent 90% of its life stored with a miller cover over it and then the whole thing covered in plastic to keep the dust off.

    I have a project in mind using 6" 9lb/ft H-beams to put a 20' long loft in my shop to move storage there out of the garage and the attic. While I've mig welded some over the years (1 or 2 small projects a year), its been 10+ years since I used a Big 300+ amp mig welder for anything substantial. So I'm not sure if I want to trust my mig welding skills to something that will have up to 2,000 lbs on it 8' up in the air with my toys under it. I've seen many instances on line where mig welds look nice but have no strength (penetration) so I feel more comfortable running 6010 and 7018 to put this together.

    Even though the 140 has little use, just not sure I'll be able to get anywhere near $500 for it due to its age and I don't want to be out of a mig if I have a thin project come up that I don't want to try to stick weld with 3/32 rod.

    Decisions, decisions...

    Well Clint 738, sounds like you better get the CST 280 Now. Then you will have until end of May to decide on another.

    Miller: Any chance of getting "Grandfathered" for two weeks?
    Unfortunately, the promotion is only available between March 1st and May 31st.
