Default Antique welder info needed

We had this welder donated, and I figured you guys could give me some general info on it. We have no intentions of firing it up.
I only had time for this one photo. I can get more next weekend.

Hi Brad
My vote is a welder. I worked in a welding shop meny years ago, back in a dark corner of the past, was a machine that looked a lot like this, with a large open frame rheostat control, welding cables hanging on hooks, on a cart for portability. This machine was built by Allis Chalmers. I thought this was a neet machine, I did my best to get it when the shop closed in 1987, But the owner said that it was his Grandfathers first welder and he wanted to keep it.
Bob
