That welder was made by Miller. I used one when I was a kid and it is a very good machine. I can't think of the model number but still see these once in a while. I think Miller could still furnish those cable receptacles.

Those cable ends can be bought through Grainger or about any welding supply store...They still use them today on alot of arc welders.

That is the same machine as an old Miller Dialarc. Miller tech can help you out with the specifics. www.millerwelds.com

Thanks for the info guys I will see if i can get them and get it going. I have to get power to it since my breaker is not big enough to pull it. I'll get it going this summer.
