Check Home Depot. I was checking rental prices the other day for some yard work equipment and saw a big sign that said they sell used stuff. I walked around and saw that they rent Lincoln 125 Mig/Flux welders. When I asked the guy about it he said they sell their stuff after about 3 years for 1/3 to 1/2 of the original cost. They had one that is about to hit that mark and he said it would sell for about $170. He took my info and is going to call me when they get the go ahead to sell it. A brand new Lincoln 125 is $420 so I feel like a used one for that price for me, a total beginner that doesn't want to invest serious $$$ from the get go is worth it. Plus, after each use they are tested to ensure everything works and if something doesn't they are fixed before they go back out the door. Seems like its at least worth checking out.
