Default Help with Hobart Bros welder ID

Hi All,

I was hoping someone might be able to ID this welder, or at least point me in the right direction in getting more info about it.

Thanks,

Jim

My father-in-law has a similar one. I am also curios how old these are. Here are a few pictures I took the other day.

I had a welder that was very much the same,or was the same as Master Fabricater's believe I still have manual if you are having trouble - I will copy a page and send to you
One I had was powered by 4 cyl. flathead jeep - very good welding machine
I got rid of it because I needed AC power on the Auxilary
I believe it was GS-250 I sold it in the late 70tys so I maybe wrong on model
