    Seems that could cause it. Can you try another meter to be sure? Some meters aren't that accurate at very low resistance values.

      I believe what the meter is saying, it is old but a good meter... I ordered a replacement resistor tonight, more to come when it arrives.

        Anxious to see if that fixes it. Let's hope.

          Ok gang.... good news, While waiting for the new resistor to arrive I used another that I had available to me to verify the issue at hand. I adjusted the revolving voltage to read the max spec, loaded up 1/8 6011 set to the medium course setting (80-150) and saw a dramatic increase in welder output. Frankly it now behaves as I would expect it to behave. Once I install the new resistor I plan to double check the revolving voltage but from what I can see I am going to call this a success. I feel confidant enough at this point that I am willing to run it to the local welding shop for a load test for verification. Thank you to everyone who chimed in and helped me to get this project the rest of the way to completion.

            Great! A couple of extra ohms in the exciter circuit is not good!
