  • 1942 gas driven welder question Rock???

    I have a 1942 miller welder that I plan on repairing and cleanning up here. I was thinking of sandblasting the cover and painting it but I would hate to losse the stickers on the unit. I was wondering if I can get replacemnet stickers for this unit?

        Sorry its a bit yonger then that. its a AEA-200LE was built in dec. of 1961. its a 255 amp A/C stick unit. there is a gen. half I think its rated for 22 Amps at 220 Vac. If needs to be I can take a few shots of the sticker ... some of them are so bad I can really see them thoe.

            Old Man Stick, I have a Model 88 made in 1968, Same decals as yours, and Rock told me several months ago that there were none available. You can get newer decals, but that's not appropriate to the machine. Too bad Miller didn't have a special run of them made when they restored one for the museum.

              Hi Old Man Stick;
              Well we know it wasn't a AEA-200le beacuse we started to build them in 1947. Before them we had the AD225L and the MEMCO BANTAM AND THE BANTAN 2-E. We don't have any of the old decals any more. Do you have the serial number on the unit you have and what type of engine is on it?
              Thank you and please get back to me,
              MATT

                Aw shoot, I have machines older than that. Worst case, if anybody has good pictures of what the decal is supposed to look like, and correct size, I have a guy who makes them in either hot ink printed onto vinyl, or cut vinyl letters for me. He doesn't charge a lot either, and his work is fantastic, and the colors last.

                  This is the info I gave out last year when I pick up the unit. I have been very busy and just now getting time to work on it. I copyed the post that I got back stateing the year it was made. I have no books on the unit. All I know is it needs some cleaning and little bit of motor work. But I would like to get it running and welding and looking great!

                  I will take AS much info as I can get. I have a couple phone numbers to call once I get a min. to see if I can get some books on it.

                  Thanks

                      Hi Old Man Stick;
                      Sorry I didn't get back to you. All I have is a parts book for that AEA-200LE, I haven't found the engine book let. These book were store away 8 years ago for these old machines.
                      It might take time to located them. If you can get me your address by fax, and I will ship what I have to you.
                      Thank You
