        I wish I could help with a manual, but I am just here to say 'wow'.
        I have much the same machine in my shop, but made by Lincoln.
        the Detriot engine is near indestructible in this use.
        probably good for 15,000 hours before needing a rebuild.
        Neat option is the removable fine adjustment dial, just plug it into an extension cord.
        When Hobart was purchased by ITW , much of the information on these old machines was lost.
        A few companies still make carbon brushes for the generator.
        Other than brushes, the only wear parts are bearings.
        A little bit of grease and they will last for a lifetime.
