Hi. I have an older Marquette A.C. ARC Welder that I'm wanting to sell. It does work great, but I don't know how old it is:( Does anyone know what it might be worth. I'm NOT looking to make bank. Just want to know what it's worth. Thanks!

For one thing, you need to describe the unit much more than what you have in order to establish even a guess estimate for what you should ask for it. You will need to tell anyone the following minimum information:
1. Model number
2. Physical description - Arc/Mig/Tig and condition etc, -- photo would help
3. Voltage requirement - from tag on machine
4. Amperage requirement - from tag.
5. Size, weight and age
OR- Put it on evil bay and see what it would bring. You could either set a reserve or pull it at the last minute if you feel it was under bidded.

220 volt, minimum of 180 Amps with usable cables, cord and clamp, and known to work properly go for $50-75.00 here at Ranch and Estate auctions. Miller, Lincoln, Hobarts go for about $125.00. 110 volt units , working, go around $20.00...if they sell at all. Might help if your profile said where you were located...sometimes a local might express an interest.:)
