    Or maybe have an ebay recommendation for MIG and Plasma machines. Pricing is better then local but I'm a little leary pulling the trigger as I am an Ebay newb.:o

    I'd look around locally a bit more. I know I personally can get stuff in my favorite welding store for the exact same pricing, cheaper on the Miller 251 I believe.

    Though I guess free shipping negates Tax. I just like the idea of having a place to take it back to if I am spending that kind of money.(which I will be very soon).

    Thats exactly my problem. Local is 20 bucks less but online stuff is no tax and free shipping,...that's a lot of $$$ on a 1200-1700 dollar item on state tax. I guess if the local shop is a mfg repair shop they will service my stuff regardless of where I bought it from. Then to make it worse or better depending on your comfort level, the ebay stores ar even cheaper but you wonder what the risk is w/ the "to good to be true" online transaction. Like anything it's a comprimise. Pay for a known good thing or go for the deal and hope all goes good.:o:o:o

    I'm a beginner welder and got my Lincoln SP135 from a place that also sells on ebay called Indiana Oxygen Co. Price was great, too. They also have a pretty good website. Just my .02$

    Buying local has its benifits. The guys at the local shop can be a wealth of info for you and may hook you up when it comes to consumables. If the price difference is just tax I always stick with the local guy.
