Default Calling all you old Hobart Bros welder guys.

New here and have an idea to help in researching these old machines. How hard would it be to start a list of these old welders and the date of manufature by serial number if we know it? Then we would at least have a data base to start with. You could sort of fill in the gaps you might say. Mines :
Serial #DW8134 built 1948

300 amp 40v Chrysler Flat head 6 powered. No model number.

If you know your date of manufacture and serial number let us know eventually we'll have a pretty long list.

I'm in. Mine's a 200 amp Hobart Simplified Arc welder powered by a Ford V8-60 flathead engine.

Serial number is CW3121. There is no model number on the plate. The lady at Miller says it was made in 1937 which is consistent with the engine.

It's being restored now.
