    To clarify, the reason I asked about the diodes is they seem the be the only parts that parts that would fail on this type of welder. That type of large welder is very rare in my area, and I did not want to drive 14 hours round-trip, pay $500, for a 45 year old welder and throw it in the scrap pile if a diode failed.

      $500...??? that seems pretty high..... $300 would be tops in my estimation for one in FINE condition
      (your pics indicate that this one has lead a tough life)

      It is a 45 year old stick welder after all

      Where are you located...........??... Upstate NY..?? Maybe...??

        Atlantic Canada, as far East as you can go without getting in a boat. Very few units of this size around. I dream about the Airco Heliwelder in Maine, on ebay for $200, but too far to drive, towing a 950# welder. Even a 30 year old AC-DC 'Buzz-Box' is going for $450. A rusty 40 year old AC-only is going for $250, and 35 year old Dialarc that had a rough life is going for $1250. I envy those who pick these units up at auction for $100. To clarify, the unit in the photos I posted is similar, not the exact unit.

            You dream about Helga's sister?<br />
            <br />
            That's awesome. I'll tell her in the morning. She will be pleased.
