    Welder rebuild from old parts, its a rescue-image.jpg almost welds chain even at this reduced power better get back to googling parts & schematics. I will probably donate this to a starving artist in AZ

    I'm looking for generic(any) schematics that show how a small ?single? turn ?current sense winding on the main xformer is used. Also pictures of how ca 1965 HF arc start is added.

    Hi,

    This welder restoration looks like a neat project. Two questions:

    • What type of welder is it?
    • What was the main objective of the project (simple resto, improved function, etc.)?


    Thanks!

    Ken

    I have no idea, judging from the knobs & number of positions and various markings its most of the welder part of a Linde 225 (- the wirefeed?) I intend to get this working enough as a stick welder and donate it to a starving artist
    Welder rebuild from old parts, its a rescue-image.jpg this is one of the caps 0.1uF from either the workpiece clamp to ground or from the stick part to ground. Made of Aluminum, 4mil mylar and packing tape. Welder rebuild from old parts, its a rescue-image.jpg now running with 240v and more of the bits bolted together. I have a 1963 Lincoln working stick for loose inspiration on the schematic, but it would be nice to find a real schematic googling parts hasnt worked yet

    Welder rebuild from old parts, its a rescue-image.jpg Wheels from a red wagon sitting outside until the wood rotted. The axles and wheels are good, These will be wheels for the welder
