A friend of a friend is selling a Miller Regency 250 with a 22A MIG attachment for what seems to be a decent price. I want a machine that can handle 1/4" to 3/8" on a regular basis, yet still be able to throttle down to lighter gauge if needed.
My friend has seen the rig and says it is in very good condition, adding that his friend is pretty anal about his stuff.
I've been looking at new 200/250 Lincoln MIG machines, but the asking price for the Miller is <1/2 of what a new Lincoln 215 would run. That has it's attraction! I've downloaded the manuals for both the 250 and the 22A, and it seems to be what I'm looking for.
Anyone running the Miller combination (or similar), in either a production or small shop environment, that would care to relate their experiences would be appreciated.
