From what I read it looks like a TB would have no problem powering an MM 211........hmmm

Yeah, except the earlier TBs (mine) don't have alot of 230vac power. Plenty of 120 though. Also, if I have my TB there I don't realy need a small MIG, the MIG is to avoid having to drag an extra piece of equipment out.
Much as I like Miller eqiupment I may be leaning toward the Lincoln. The guy offered to deliver it for the same price as well ($36 value for the tank of gas that I would have to burn to go get it.)
I'll let you know tomorrow.

Thanks again,

I expect that was a stroke of luck.

Just different packaging and some minor changes, far as I can tell.

Was that a craigslist deal? At least half of sellers and buyers are flakes from my experience. They either call and don't show (if buying) OR sellers never return calls or Emails in a timely manner.

Yes it was a CL deal. I emailed and spoke to the guyy beforehand too. His loss, I just bought a brand new welder at the LWS instead. (see my more recent thread on this topic.)
