    I do a lot of restoration work on minis. Have been offered a Murex Mig 130 welder and have been trying to find some info on it. Does anyone know how old it is ? or any other info on it. Haven't had chance to see it yet but a mate has told me its in really good nick and has had little use.
    I've checked the Murex website but can only find 180 upwards, no mention of a 130.

    Is it the Tradesmig 130?? In which case it is probably getting on for 15 - 20 years old. A cracking set but I'm not too sure on spares availabilty now.

    If it is the Tradesmig model & it's as clean as described you can't go far wrong at that money. I can get things like PCB's repaired for that machine & other, likely main component faults replaced. (not all).
    If, however, it is the 'Autolynx' 130 BEWARE. The original Autolynx, circa 60's & 70's were branded BOC & one of the first MIG's on the market. They were REAL machines but you can now FORGET any spare parts. Murex did re-launch the Autolynx name fairly recently (6-8 years ago) so if it is that model not a problem.

    Hi Nige,
    The Autolynx 3 was the modern relaunch of the very early Autolynx machines & although they are not made now you will still get spares. The Serial Number denotes the year of manufacture, ie.1999.
