        better yet ,just tell me what the symbols mean on the front case and i go from there?

          From the mame plate it was manufactured in the Hobart AG plant.

          International symbols were not standardize in the 60's - 70's and I think that is the vintage of the machine.

          My best quess for the front panel controls are as follows:

          A. Upper Left - AC/DC selector / up = DC and down = AC

          B. Center Left - rotary 4 position process / range switch Left SMAW range 1 & 2, Right GTAW range 1 & 2

          C. Center Right - rotary knob = high frequency intensity
          switch = up HF continous, center HF off, & down HF start

          D Center Lower - hand crank is weld current fine adjustment

          E. Lower Left - Jack Plug is for remote contactor & the tig torchpower/gas connector

          F. Lower Right - negative terminal not used in tig mode but is ground terminal for SMAW / positive terminal for GTAW ground or SMAW electrode when stick welding.

          Hope this helps you

            Any more info guys??

            No,the guy who sold it to me sayed it is DC only,so i cant weld Alum

            A) still no idea....

            B) i guess ur right there..

            C) rotary knob is timmer for gas flow (found that out) and the switch is only 2 settings up or down,so still no idea

            D,E.F) yep ur right there...

            Come on guys help me out

              It is definitely AC (the lever on the upper left is the AC DC selector in the DC position). It would be pretty unusual to have an older AC/DC Tig welder that didn't have high frequency. Why not spark it up and see what it does? Let op!

                You were told incorrectly. See these symbols in the red circles? Those are an international symbol for alternating current, a representation of a sine wave.

                    It appears to be set up to run on 380V rather than 220.

                    It is "old school" because it uses selenium rectifiers rather than silicon.

                    There is no obvious spark gap for the high frequency, but maybe it is enclosed or covered.

                      I think the upper right switch may be a pulser.

                        I'm looking for an owners manual for a Hobart welder model: TG-201 serial: T-2021.
