    Spared!

    It looks like Il Duce's tariffs have spared us hick weldors that want a red or blue but can't afford it!

    NOT SUBJECT TO IMPORT TARIFF:

    "Machinery and apparatus other than hand-directed or - controlled, used for soldering, brazing or welding, not gas-operated."

    WHEW!

    Actually what you quoted, would indicate that manual plug in welders would have a tariff.

    Yes. It's a 25% tariff.

    Key words he must have missed the "other than" part.

    He must not have realized that makes it the opposite or reverses the statement.

    ...but they are gas operated. Lol.

    Pretty simple though to just say well they are gas operated so screw you. It won't operate without the shielding gas so that makes it gas operated in my mind(wallet). LMAO !!!

    So a engine drive wouldn't be subject to tariff. This is going to get real messy. They can't even spell it out where it is black and white but they make the laws. Beat them with their own words.

    So gas operated. Is that gasoline or compressed gas ? So if it operated on diesel would be different.

    Well considering our president thought "clean coal" meant they physically clean the coal before burning it.....I am not surprised by this wording one bit. Technical, he is not.

    As someone who spent almost 3 decades in IT, the non-technical potatohead is HRC. Or she's just a big fat liar.

    I honestly doubt there is anyone technical in our government Otherwise they would be earning an honest living.

    Hmmm. I'm wondering why EVERY unit that I've bought from Everlast is considerably less currently than I paid for them originally? Tariffs?

    Maybe you got ripped off Yofish! JK! Probably due to greater competition and advancement of technology, either way it's good for us consumers

    So I haven't paid attention to welder prices in a very long time, have everlast's prices and other companies prices gone up since the tariff?

    I can only speak for the Everlast I bought and a few others that they make. They have went down.

    I don't know if that applies any longer. Prices just jumped back up. I was considering one of the TIG models over the holidays but the price increase decided that! Not now!

    No. That was our largest sale ever, and when we have a major sale it is toward the end of the year. We do have some "weekly" or "monthly" specials.

    20% would push me over the edge...a new TIG and a water cooler. I may hold off upgrading to that new Millermatic 255 for a while.

    I just started reading and visiting the web site last Dec., had no idea what the prices were before that. That explains why the prices increased after the 1st. Oh well so much for that.

    Miller has a price increase that was supposed to go into effect yesterday. They have yearly ones and sometimes more than that. But we've held our pricing stable for several years now.
