    I am retired. I have a HTP 130. Bugger welder. Happy to be here.

    My better half inherited 2 Miller welders (one a large mig with a big spool of wire and gas tank) (and a stick welder) last year. We are debating if keeping them for later use is in our future. We do not have a 220 volt/50amp setup in the current garage where they are stored to test if they work. Included are photos. Any helpful guidance is appreciated.

    They will run fine on a 30 amp dryer outlet for light duty work.

    Nice machines for somebody who has need for them. If in no rush, I would list them at max price and wait. What is the max output of that mig? 60% at 200amp has value to somebody.

    For a hobbyist, when ready you will be able to pick up a smaller mig with all the amps you need when you are ready.

    Why is the HTP 130 a booger or bugger welder?

    Black face MM200 is a highly sought after mig welder. Will work with a 30 amp outlet like I use. I have one with the optional burnback/pulse-spot panel. I love it.
    Weld like a "WELDOR", not a wel-"DERR"

    The Thunderbolt stick welder is an AC only unit that's likely worth $100-250 in most markets since stick welding works much better using DC power. One plus is they're very simple and have very little to fail. The few things that can fail are inexpensive to replace so it's not a big risk buying one you can't test.

    The Millermatic 200 black face is a very nice machine that is something of a cult classic for auto body repair guys. They love the soft, smooth arc for working on sheetmetal. It's the newer version which will accept the newer spool gun plug, which is a nice plus. Every market is different, but prices on MIG welders are up right now, so I think almost anywhere that's a $1,000 machine. They are also extremely robust and fairly simple so almost anything on them can be fixed. That one looks to be in good condition so I'd be willing to be it would fire right up and weld just fine with minimal fuss. The torch plastic is broken where it goes into the machine, but that appears to be just the part that protects the hose, so it should still work. If you think you might want a welder in the future, that would be a good one to keep.
