    Hi all has any body got an idea how much a 5yr old 180-1 migmaker is worth? works a treat and it's never missed a beat, I'm thinking of getting a bigger one coz when I brought it I didn't have 32amp supply.

    If it's been well looked after, I would have thought at least £350 -£400 :dontknow: I've just purchased a new 240-1, and definitely well worth the money :thumbup: Contact @Tom Orrow L on this forum, he supplies the Oxford range and he's very helpful.

    It's the same with my 180-1 great welder I done a lot of looking into it before I brought it! I just haven't seen any used ones for sale!!!!

    People don't often sell them because they're a great machine. Throw caution to the wind and advertise it high, you can always drop if you get no interest ;)

    That's a good point I'll have to give it a few weeks and come up with some more cash first I want a 270-1, from what I've read that's the highest I can run with my power setup. I don't suppose you know what the Tigmaker's are like do you? I'm thinking of getting an AC/DC one

    I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the 270-1. No idea what the Tigmakers are like, but get in touch with @Tom Orrow L , he'll give you all the advice you need on the Oxford range :thumbup:

    There are slight differences between the 180 and the 270 the smaller has semi sygenic wire speed, the larger is manual. No big deal once you know. For a 270 youll probably need a c type breaker to run it full tilt.

    To be fair the breakers not to much of a problem. I'll just have to spend a bit of time with the wire speed
