    First month I had my old shop set up the power board sent out an inspector... I had 2 aluminum rollback beds I took in to repair and I worked some late nights with my a/bp 330 doing 1/4 through 1/2 aluminum rail and deck repair.
    I knew the first bill was going to be high but I figured the jobs to offset that cost.
    The building was previously an old radiator repair shop that had 3 or 4 incandescent bulbs for lighting and just a small 110v air compressor.
    Power company thought that I had a short or bad meter but I hung 6 metal halide fixtures,installed a 220v compressor and worked that old miller hard that first month.
    Bill was little over $700 that first month.
    Average bill after that was $250-300 a month

    Or might have thought you had started a "growing" business!

    Yep, that 500 probably dims the lights in the neighborhood when it is running at the top end.

    I worked on a new house under construction in the winter of '93. The owner was a banker. They heated with oil fired torpedo heater. The owner lived near, and would fill the tank each night. He spilled a few drops on himself, and stunk all next day at the bank. He asked for electric unit heaters. I hooked three 5000 watt heaters up. They ran 24/7. In the day, the power company read meters every other month, and averaged for monthly billing. His first meter reading was a shocking figure. He called the power company, and convinced them the meter was defective. They replaced the meter, and settled for ten cents on the dollar.

    My conscience would never allow me to do that sort of thing. I guess that's how people get rich.

    OK you win! $330. I got power enough for it. Likely, I can't afford the first month's electric bill, but I'll worry about that then. I once had a Dialarc 250 HF, 310 amps seemed unlimited in power! 625 amps AC should be plenty. I could do 1" thick aluminum. They don't make coolers for these torches, you have to live beside a river.

    Hell, you would need a separate transformer for your garage to run that sucker full out

    Why do I direly want this. I have a #12 torch NIB that would compliment it. Will take 5/16 tungsten.

    Beast of a machine for sure. But it looks like it's seen some hard use and maybe not been cared for all that well. I could see wanting to own it just for the "brag'n rights" it'd give you but in light of all the advancements that have been made in TIG welding machine technology in recent years I'm not sure $1500 makes very good economic sense.

    Better off putting the money towards a dynasty. It was a good machine in its day and still is, but it's power hungry and big.

    I'm open to reasonable offers. However "$330.00" is too low.

    Re: Miller Syncrowave 500

    I would take the $330.00 since the machine is no longer supported by Miller. If a board goes out or you need a major part Miller is no longer stocking the. You would have to find the parts on the after market and that is not easy for this size tig machine. Miller stopped supporting equipment they no longer build after 7 years. This started in January 2016. There are a lot of old Miller welders that will soon be parts machines. Good luck!
