Have any of you ever heard of a KO Lee welder made in Aberdeen SD? Looking for any info out there. I am restoring one that I am having trouble finding the connectors that plug into the front. Marty.

The little I know of K O Lee is that they were supplying Valve grinding tools and valve seats, would this be the same company? F.J.W.

yes the same company, they are still in business with grinders and so forth but nothing to do with welders. I have found a couple pages about the welders but that is about it. Was hoping for an oldtimer in here to know somthing!!!!!!

My dad had a K O Lee welder we used years ago. It was round and about 3 foot tall with a vented top. We scrapped it years ago when it shorted out and started on fire but before that it was a good smooth running welder for 7018.
