it's a 180em fan cooled 220v mig, it cost me $300. & as I said before it's easy to tote around

I brought this in the next town Pine grove, at the auto store, there is a member here from that town & he could verify this
if needed, I just don't know him or where he lives.
Rich
PS it was listed for more, I asked if he would take $300. he went & looked in a book & then sold it to me

My welder was made in Cleveland Ohio, for the record.

We do not know how much worse it can get.

Miller and Lincoln already make SOME stuff out of the country. I think Miller has a plant in mexico. Lincoln is in Italy and Poland for sure - check the serial number of your Lincoln, the first letter indicates where it was made A - America M- Mexico - P Poland etc.

Oh I think they both have plants in canada but I could be wrong.
