    Its not a problem when you have a great LWS, they service Lincoln, Esab, Miller. Not sure about others, its nice when its a employee owned company run by the same family for years.
    They would be a store you should contact about being a dealer possibly, just a thought.

    You are beyond hope here. Nothing I say matters. You throw shade just to do it. We have several policies which cover this. One is our long standing (9 years) 30 day satisfaction warranty. It's a 100% if there is a problem with the unit, including shipping. If there is no verifiable issue, and the customer simply wants to return it, then it is covered by the same policy, but it is subject to a 15% restock fee and return shipping. Additionally, we have a 6 month policy which allows the customer to "trade up" with marginal expense, to a larger item if it is too small or not enough to meet their needs. Many times, it is 100% trade-up unless the unit is heavily used, and then usually no more than 20% hit against the original purchase price of the trade in .

    I have an ESAB. No one wants to service here within 100 miles that I can find. I've always had to go back to Florence for my parts and service and fix it myself. They even discontinued many parts while the product was still in production.

    The reason ESAB has that policy (very recently I might add) is that their reputation for service was, well, through the floor. When they bought out Victor, they realized that they married "up" and had to do something about their reputation for parts and service. I love the products, hate their service reputation for the size company they are.

    Our warranty policy (even if it doesn't cover shipping) is for 5 years. Parts and Labor. I remember that people poo-pooed it when we brought it out 10 years ago, saying we wouldn't be around 3 years. Here we are. Still enjoying yearly record breaking sales, and are shaping the industry with our products and policies. Others have come and gone (Including TA, and afore mentioned Victor), but we are still here.

    And if someone is not happy with that policy, they can buy from Home Depot for 90 day return.

    To be clear. ESAB didn't Buy Victor. ESAB doesn't even own itself. Colfax owns ESAB and bought Victor ( and paid 2X more than it sold for last time ) to help with ESAB's 2 years in a row = 40 million dollar losses. They were tanking. Then the morons at Colfax let ESAB run Victor and now it's tanking too. Seen the POS new imported Victor torches yet? I'm still a big Cutmaster fan though.

    You are the one in this forum pushing S##T. You might want to take it over where you pay to post this dribble..Then People will believe you, and follow you in lock step.. Here it's not going to happen. You pretty much have a stake in what you are pimping, and really should stay over there.. (IMO)

    I was a contributing member of this forum, long before I started working for Everlast. And N2, you post the dribble for free. Think about that.

    Correct, but it was done under the guise of ESAB publicly. In fact before it was publicly announced, ESAB had a large, veiled quote on their page: "To the Victor goes the spoils". Which I saw a few weeks beforew, and wondered about it before anything was up. It was sort of random. But currently Victor product is being sold under the name ESAB or Thermaldyne moniker.

    And yes, I have been teaching part time in a tech school and have had to contend with that junk. Regulators going bad, hard to read, and the newest stuff feels like fisher-price designed it.
