Default Lincoln Wire Matic 250

Being a Miller fan...I gotta good deal on a Lincoln Wire Matic 250. Going to do a full test on it today. Looks in really good shape...came with it looks like a 120cf bottle maybe half full and a roll and a half a wire......she was asking $1200 for everything...I ended up paying $750....I did a quick test on everything before I bought it.....Was just wondering on anyone's input...This is my first post and also wanted to say "Hi" to everyone....Ty!

Assuming it is a working machine you did fine, fair deal for $750, $1200 was high.

Good machines.

I agree with Shade. $750 is a good price for an older working Lincoln 250 MIG. If it is clean and been stored inside even better!

BTW, Welcome Aboard!
