I am with Franz on this one, I would be looking hard at a TB if I was in the market for a new machine. I ran across a guy in a gas station with one the other day, asked how he likes it, he says super. You could run almost any process from it also. A guy like Marko would never wear it out and as was mentioned new is nice. I dont much care for buying used machines either unless they are near giving them away. I paid 100$ for a 300 sychrowave, ok, thats worth it, but to give 2000,, or 2500 for it,, nope, gonna buy a new one.

NON SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE!!!

BUY A WELDER WITH SOME SERIOUS AUXILARY POWER. WHY? YOU ASK! I HAVE TWO WORDS FOR YOU..... HURRICANE SEASON. A SA-200 AIN'T GONNA HELP YOU THERE PAL AND YOU AIN'T GONNA BE RUNNING A PIPELINE TO THE FUNERAL HOME SOON!

I'm starting to think Marko is sipping the embalming fluid again. I have an SA 200 for sale, at damn near a giveaway price. S has an SA 200 that he doesn't want to sell, but Marko wants the one S has. Wazzup with that?
Maybe Doc needs to go give Marko some reflex tests with a 2# crosspien hammer.

Well Mr Markopolo, now that everyone has made the decision on what welding machine you really want, maybe tomorrow they'll pick out your clothes for you

All this talk of "practical" shidt again.

I have a tractor that sees about 60 hrs of runtime a year a tiller could most of the same jobs it does, I bought it because I wanted it. Was that "practical" who should care but me it's my money.

I have a rolling tool box crammed full of expensive American hand tools. I am not a professional mechanic, I really could have gotten by with some chinese Wal mart tools. Was that "practical" who should care but me it's my money.

I have a Husqvarna chainsaw when a knockoff Poulan built Sears brand could have done everything I needed it to. Was that "practical" who should care but me it's my money.

I have a Kennedy tool box at work filled with Starrett measuring tools I cringe everytime I think of all that money sitting in one place. I probably could have gotten by with Mitutoyo tools at 1/3 rd the price. Was that "practical" who should care but me it's my money.

The wife and I bought a house 25 miles one way from where we work because we like the country surroundings. We are being eaten alive in monthly fuel bills. Is that "practical" who should care but us it's our money.

I bought a used SA-200 for $2000.00 when I could have bought a $2800.00 Ranger 250 that would have worked just as good for me. I bought the SA-200 because I wanted it. Is that "practical" who should care but me it's my money.

Marko, nothing anyone says on here matters 1 iota. Buy what you want, that will make you happy. It's only YOUR money and I really don't care.

Jeff
