Probably not the best place on this forum to ask this question but many of these SA200's are projects in themselves for restoration.
I've noticed that the price of the SA200's have gone through the roof. A year or two you could pick up one of the grey ones for a couple hundred bucks and lately I saw one on a trailer and the guy was asking $3300.00 for it. Seems a tad expensive to me for a 40 to 50 year old welder.
So, my questions are why are these in such demand? What's so good about them?
