I found a 1956 Wisconsin TFD two cylinder with a Lincoln arch welder. After a lot of work i got her running .Just curious what something like this is worth

If you can get it to generate a good strong, stable arc, and have the discipline to properly clean, fit, and chamfer the metal, select the proper rod, and maintain a steady hand while drawing the bead... somewhere between $65-$90 per hour depending upon the local labor market demands. You'll find it's worth more in the higher range when you can do good-quality overhead and vertical beads... and even more if you have it in the back of a truck and can respond to phone calls within a half-hour...

There is a guy in my neighborhood that runs an auto repair shop who has one of these. He had it in the back of a truck for a while and now it is on the floor of his shop with a bunch of other stuff. Looks like he wheels & deals quite a bit, so it is probably for sale. It looks to be all there. What would be a typical value on one of these? I'd consider making an offer on it if I thought I could get it at a reasonable price (cheap would be better )
