Got to be one of the poorest welders made. Neighbor had one & It would not burn a 7018 rod no matter how you tried.

No, sorry, it's long gone.

Assume he sold it when he closed up the shop.

Probably the best welder ever made for the market they were designed for. The rod, 7018 is a beautiful rod for DC reverse. AC welder doesn't like it. I have two of the red forney's. They have served me well. The brutes will run at 180 amp setting most of a day long and not kick a 30 amp breaker.

The carbon arc also works great to heat stuck and rusted nuts. Pull the carbons together on each side and hold. Even the carbon will get red hot!

If you want to signal the neighbors a carbon arc makes a great yard light at night. Doesn't last long without moving the carbons together.

My dad bought a used one back around 1960. I learned how to weld with it and got pretty good with it, I thought any way. It also came with a carbon arc torch, and I got so I could braze some pretty thin sheet metal with it. Kinda like shooting sqirrels with a 30-60, a little too much gun for the job. You had to turn it way down. If you had to straighten any thing large like a coulter shank, you had to go slow and not get too close or the carbons on the torch would get added to the steel and make it brittle.
