If you’re on a budget, you may not have the money to buy a
brand new welding machine. You can buy a used welding machine if it is in good
condition and works well.
There are several ways to buy a used welding machine. Make
sure to check to be sure the welding machine is working properly. Just
because the outside looks like it is in good condition, does not mean that it is
Some of these sites also sell reconditioned welding machines
that have been fixed and recertified by the manufacturer.
Look for reputable name brand machines such as Lincoln,
Airco, Clark or Miller.
When you find a welding machine that you like the look of,
ask for pictures from the seller. Check the pictures to make sure the machine
is free from rust, holes or scratches.
Email or call the seller to arrange a time to come and look
at the item. Because electronics and welding machines can be finicky, never purchase
one you cannot use first unless there is a money-back guarantee
If you are able to see the machine, plug it in and try it
out. Make sure to tell the seller that you want to try the machine before you
buy it so that they can have it ready for you to use.
If you don’t find anything you quite like the look of, check
out Baker’s Gas for regularly discounted welding machines.
