I have that babys twin brother sitting in the shop now. I purchased this one new, it came with a air cooled tourch only. I got this one some where around 1996 and believe I paid $1800 for every thing except tank.

I would grab that real quick. Scrap copper value must be close to that. No luck on that kind of price anywhere close to me but I'm still looking.

Look like it has a foot pedal, which is worth a few bucks. We had to buy one from SSC for $180.

A brand new Syncro 250 DX runs $2,700. I see the older ones on Craigslist for $800-$1200.

I saw one the other day on CL for $3,000. I responded to the guy, who was selling it for his Aunt after her husband passed away. Told him it was way too much. We ended up talking on the phone and discovered we were both local and in the software business. Ended up having a lunch meeting and may be able to do business together. And he is connected to a guy who I know from the past and who may be able to provide some capital or business assistance. Weird. Anyway, he sold it for $1,500. but I think it did have a torch, pedal and cooler, and maybe even tanks.
