Default Lincwelder DC-180-AS Restored

I'm new to this forum but I just had to show off my restored Lincwelder DC-180-AS to some people that might appreciate it. I picked this up in boxes very cheap and after some work and paint I ended up with what I think is one of the best looking welders from 1954. The motor is a Wisconsin THD hand crank twin from 1964 and I would guess that the original owner must have replaced the motor after using the welder for 10 years. I didn't think to take pictures when I was restoring it but now that it is finished other than the two Lincoln decals on the side I am more than pleased with the way it turned out and how smooth it welds.
