  • Purchasing an old dayton/miller welder

    Looking at buying an old dayton/miller 250 ac/dc welder. this appears to be at least 25yrs. old. Anyone have any experiance with this welder and are parts still available. is this a good reliable unit? Any comments are appreciated.

    If it was sold thoriugh Grainger, you can check with them for parts availability. Another option is checking with a local welding machine repair shop. Most of the older welders are pretty bullet proof.

      Do you know or can you get the serial number of the machine in question? This would help to see what is available.
      Thanks

          Rock,
          I have the serial # numbers of the welders I purchased, A Dayton model 3z564, 250amp ac/dc buzz box ssn. W227990. The next unit is a neat engine driven portable Hobart G-180-K, ssn 81WS08848, spec. 6270-1 w/Kohler gas engine. Are their any manuals still available for the units? The Hobart engine drive welder needs the micro switch that allows you to use the ac outlets (spring missing). You have to hold in the little button to get the outlets to work. Both units are in super condition...the guy I purchased them from really took care of his equipment.

          Thank you
          Walt

              That part number is for a current 250 amp AC/DC welder. I would contact Grainger with the serial number. They should be able to help you.

              800-877-0150 or

                  Glad I could help. That old welder should be around for a long time. Any idea yet who made it?

                    The Buzz box was indeed made by Dayton Mfg. and still sells in the current Grainger catalog. Little has changed in the 20 yrs since my model was mfg.
