    But if i do 3/8 or 1/2 in with it i need the high side working for proper penetration

    the high side works good this thing really sings on high range i do not care for the CO2 much now i now it works ok i will order a new switch, I get that fixed and liner and new everything on the end of the mig gun this thing will be a nice welder, this thing is way nicer then the MM250 at work difference of night and day even with a bad liner

    This makes me regret even more that I didn't pursue the NOS Vintage I found when I bought my MM210.

    i have not got nothing bad to say about MM 210 i used one for 18 months in a fab shop it was a great welder in fact they had a MM 252 and i would use the 210 over it any day, i do not like the continuous voltage on the millers they are really touchy i will take the tap over it any day

    it still welds good
    I am all for buying used but that is always a "beating down point " i like to make with a guy selling something , if i get this thing home and something is wrong your price isn't such a good price and i am stuck with a $500 POS . it doesn't seem like you did bad $600 in a $12-1500.00 machine your not hurt ! i just bought a oxy/acetylene rig with all victor stuff on it for $100 bottles and all i just had the regulators and torch rebuilt and will buy new hose and haven't got the bottles filled yet i told the guy who is a friend that i am taking a risk i don't know anything about this other than it's quality stuff and what i might have to go through if i can't get the bottles filled and he understood that's what you deal with buying used . sometimes you hit a home run and sometimes you strike out .

    if your referring to me buying the welder you didn't read all the post, i did try it it welded good even with a bad liner it was hard wired on the low side i did not know the MM Vintage had a high&low range the selector is fried. we wired it on the high side it works great soon as i get the switch and new consumables it will be great
