    Default Some CraigsList Ads

    I spend some time each week shopping for good deals on welding gear. Much of my time is spent on Craigslist. Last year I started collecting my favorite ads. Here are some lines from a few of them:

    This is a good welder I donít know anything about it

    If you call and a man answers say you are calling about the baby stuff donít mention the welder

    I need to sell this welder to get my brother out of jail

    Was $550 new, will sell it for $1500 obo

    I donít know how it got here but I need to get it out of my garage

    Will consider a trade for a pick-up NO FORDS

    I think it was made in China as the instructions are in French

    Linkin welder almost new

    Bring someone to help you load it. It weighs a million pounds

    This is a great arch welder

    There is no place to plug it in because they shut off my electrical

    I canít weld worth a **** so Iím selling it

    Those are some good ones. My favorite for an old, small engine drive welder:

    "Great welding but ugly. missing doors and dented. Electronic ignition. Try before you buy. I can show you what I weld with this. My wife is making me get rid of everything ugly, soon I will be gone."
    Miller stuff:
    Dialarc 250 (1974 vintage)
    Syncrowave 250
    Spot welder (Dayton badged)

    Here is some stuff from a local ad that I saw today. Keep in mind the picture has a 130xp...

    Next up is a Miller millermatic wire feed welder. this unit runs 110 or 220 also has a miller spool gun for aluminum welding. 2 shop tanks and a heavy duty cart to hold it all. I have over 5000.00 in the set up. I wont sell separate its for sale as a complete welding unit. Im asking 2500.00
    I have a lot of tools from miter saws to nail guns. if there's something your looking for let me know, I probably have one or two. I will take off 400.00 from the welder or torch set without the tanks as I can sell them back to phoenix welding for 200 a piece.
