So, there was very little interest in the ad. If they had posted the model nuumbers, serial numbers and a list of all the accessories included, it would have gone for a lot more. I picked it up for less than one of them would sell for scrap. I could not lose on the deal. I knew the Airco could run on house current; the others were 3-phase. I figured I'd fix them up and sell them.
Here's the haul: about 1700 lbs of stuff. Was near the weight limit of my trailer
Equipment in deal:
These are industrial welders that are more than I would ever need.
All 3 welders were filthy. Looks like they did a lot of hydraulics. Everything was covered inside and out with black goo that was a mix of oil and mud.
The Airco, Miller and Lincoln were restored to working condition, cleaned up and repainted. The Lincoln was sold. So, I have the Airco and Miller for free with some extra money to boot.
|The Airco and its restoration is described here.|
|The Miller was restored and converted to single-phase and modified for short-arc transfer. It's is described here.|
|The R3S-325 was restored and sold. It is described here.|
Some of the extra cables, gouging electrode and connectors were sold on Ebay.
