 Ancient TIG welder.  Wilson 200 amp MCM HeliWelder, model 200MCM-1H. 220v, single phase.  This is a DC machine with a  High Frequency generator option.  Works well in DC on steel with the HF for starting, and also works well on aluminum using the HF continuously.  Can also be used as a stick welder.  Three amperage ranges, with continuous amperage variation within each range.  No torch, no ground lead, no stick lead, no argon bottle, and no radiator.  I've always only used an air-cooled torch, and I need that and the other stuff for my new machine.  Works well, priced right.  Brian Lee 253-639-0489
