    I believe the vintage is a copy of the Millermatic 200. They had so many people wishung they still made that model they reproduced it. That's what I heard anyway.

    I thought they were a 250 vintage but regardless i wish i had bought that instead of the crummy 250x the dealer talked me into. I think they were a great machine should have a tapped transformer

    Vintage is a 250 amp machine. I had a chance to buy a NOS one in 2004, but the dealer wouldn't come off list price, and I bought a MM210 from IOC instead. I wish I had driven over and tried to get him down.

    Good luck, if it is in decent shape, it's a good deal.
