Default Re: Help! I need info on this Hobart welder

Hey gents, l had a welder nust like that one pictured. The weld supplyer and all the old guys called it a gray beauty. The grays had the weld clocks sitting side saddle and the later ones sat on the end opposite the radiator. In the early 60s the cabinetry lost the round corners and sharp edged. I believe the400 amp had 3 rows of brushes on the wdld end. They welded smoooooooth. The heat will wonder with the temp of the machine. The 110v side would have to be flashed acter long inactivity. If you get it going, while running with polarity swich in either direction, check for volts betweem both.cable lugs and chasis one at atime.any volts indicates short . All the big outputs are coppper bar wraped in insulation and doped. Don't clean around those ereas with comp air or you will uninsulate the .achine. good for low volume shop that wants a serious welder. .mike a
