Toolking.com has refurb hobart units at pretty good prices, but you almost have to find one at a steal to make shipping worth while. Check craigslist.com in your area...search under "welder". That way you get local stuff and avoid shipping.

www.toolking.com is my first choice, too. I hear the shipping is expensive to Canada, and since I don't have a sister, shipping to your location would probably still be cost prohibitive. But for those in the States, $8 shipping for a reconditioned HH175 at $450 is the ticket.

I've sold a few tools in the past and regrettably learn my lesson the hard way. I always take the approach of reconsidering any though of selling a tool now, often putting it on the back burner for years. Something eventually go but no where near as quick as they use to.

Cheap can't really help you there. I waited for months trying to find a local used one, after my tax return I went new. Not the best answer I know. The only practical route to cheap is your local swap sheets, craigs list, papers and estate sales and auctions. The biggest problem with any of these routes like craigs list and such is that people want to much for stuff. One guy had a miller welder listed for more than what I could buy it for new. Some peole just aren't realistec in that regards.
So I'd just start saving up money hoping that something comes up that is priced right and gives you the right performance. If that don't work you will eventually have the cash for a new one.
Just don't give up in a moments frustration and buy something from Harbor Frieght. Either find a good quality used machine or buy new. Well that or the reconditioned route already suggested.
