I bought mine from the LWS, they actually beat the best ebay price I bought them by a few dollars. So, my suggestion is to go to the LWS, show them your best ebay offer, and see if they can help. Any money is better than none, so I would think they would deal.
btw, the 210 is awesome.

Mm210 & 3035
I needed to purchase a new mig welder to replace my little Hobart handler 110volt unit.
I looked on eBay also and found it had the best pricing on the MM210 & 3035. So I contacted my local welding supplier (Toll Welding Supply Co.) and they beat the eBay prices. I thought this was absolutely great that my local supplier would do this to make the sell.
I absolutely love the welder. I have had it for about a month now and have already gone through a spool of .035" wire without any problems what soever.
I am really looking forward to an aluminium mig project with this setup and if it welds anything like it does on steel I will be jumping for joy.
I used to struggle with the little Hobart mig to do some of the simplest
things. I am truly glad those days are all gone.

210 - or any other purchase
There are advantages to having both a local supplier that knows you by recognition and purchases, and a Internet supplier that knows you by your purchases.
When I bought my MM135 - I had spent days on the internet researching whether to get a Miller, Lincoln, or a Hobart. I knew what I would pay for each - it only took 20 minutes with the salesman at the local welding supply store to convince me to get the MM135 - it cost me less then the Internet price. The same for the my 200DX, the advantage is that my LWS people know me - and I can go in and ask for advice or solutions to problems I can't figure out (I took a few of their welding courses to boot). They also give me breaks on consumables.
On the other side of the coin, I bought my Spectrum 375 Plasma Cutter and LMSW-52t spot welder from Cyberweld.
Nothing is etched in stone - work it to your advantage.
