Nice buy!!! Those dialarc machines are tanks!!! When you get it up and running show us some of the welds.

I have a feeling you won't be posting a whole lot this week end 'cause you'll be playing with the new toy!!!

YOU SUCK!!! Big time, too.
By picking up the argon bottle with it, that's like getting the machine for $300. And just look at all that free dust! That thing looks like a real monster.
