  • Age of welder

    Is there any way to figure out how old a welder is?

  • #2
    depends on how old.

    If it has the serial number on it or a model number and a name brand that is still in business---possibly.

    But even if you dont there are people on the forum that might know the general age of the machine.

    Got a photo of it?

      It’s a Hobart. I’ve attached a picture of the plate with serial number and a couple more. Click image for larger version

          The features of that machine are about identical to the one I have that was made in May of 1950.Only difference I see is mine has 220 3 phase and 220 Edison also.

                Use the catalog number/serial number and call up the manufacturer. This worked for me

                  A little lesson in the English language is in order. Welder, a machine used for welding. Weldor a person who welds.

                    But, only commonly used this way by Lincoln and a few "elder weldors!
