    Okay, I was planning on buying either a Miller 210, or Miller 251 off of www.cyberweld.com but looked at shipping to Canada and they can only send packages 115 pounds or less to Canada. So I cannot order from there. I searched google and didn't get much luck. Where can I buy a welder online? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Quite a few retailers selling new welding equipment/welders on Ebay...not sure about shipping to Canada, but... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    P.S...I got mine off Ebay. Lincoln SP135T to my door for about $430.

    Your probably going to run into the same problem with any US distributor. It's a crossing the border problem.

    What you might try is to print out Cyber wleds prices and find a local distributor and see if they will price match. I do that sort of approach a lot and have pretty good luck doing it.

    I can't help you with the Canada thing, but I bought my MM210 from them. Cheap, free shipping and it drop shipped from Miller near my city, so I got it in two days. Nice people, too.

    Buy locally or come down to Vancouver. It's cheaper. I just got a 251 from KMS and it was $2100 or $2200CDN. Air Liquide is the same. If you buy a bottle you can prolly get it filled for free too (worth about $45). Right now is a good time to buy because the dollar is sliding again so they will go up in price. They are selling welders now that they got when the dollar was strong. A good helmet is another story. I'm currently search ebay for that.

    Now I just need lots of practice as I've discovered its quite an art, if you want your welds to look good and be sound. Hey Rene will you teach for beer? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
