We went and picked up the Millermatic Welder I posted about earlier last week. It is in almost new condition. The man I bought it off of was there as well as his Dad that bought the welder new. The father stated that the roll of wire in the welder was the only one that ever had been in it. There is half of it left. So this welder has done almost nothing. They where trying to do body panel work with it. It does not have a stitch setting. You have to do it your self with a short count as you weld. They could not get it to weld the thin stuff with out an automatic stitch setting.

So I got it home and installed a full tank of Argon/CO II. Changed the tip as they had it all messed up.

The welder welds like a charm. It was real easy to get set for me to use. I even tried it on some old sheet metal I had laying around. It works fine. Just do a fast two count and trigger your own stitch welding.

The serial Number is: JE797945. Would this be a 1995 model??? I did not think they made the 35s that new???

Found a serial number chart on Miller's web site. It seems that the welder I just bought would have been made in July of 1984. Wow it sure looks newer than that. It never has seen much use.

So what did you end up getting it for? JE would be 1994 cause JA would be 1990. Not sure about the July as that could just be when a manual was printed. Looks like a really good deal, especially if you talked them down from $700.

One thing you might want to do is put a better MIG gun on it like a Bernard. The old Miller, I'm guessing, GA 20C weren't the best MIG guns and you might have to order in extra nozzles and such for them.

I've been using Tweco guns for almost 40-years, no real complaints. I think the Profax is a cheap version of Tweco, but not sure.

I gave the $700. That included a bunch of tips, and an extra lead/gun(new never used, still in the plastic bag) Two rolls of wire. So all in all It was not a steal but a real good deal on a low usage welder.

You are right about that looking simmilar to a
tweco. It looks just like the gun that was on the 35
that I used.

Is the wire wrapped in plastic? If it's still in good shape and 44lb spools it's worth about $100 to replace. For that machine you got a good deal.

The wire is still shrink wrapped and clean/dry. I think it will work great for me. I just do not like the circuit boards and such the new welders have in them.
