    Old forney

    Can yall help me find out the model of this. I went to the Website didn't see any manuals for it or anything else. I contacted Forney last night via Facebook and email. Here are a few pics I think its Forney F100 but not sure.

    Here is what i am looking to do.

    Is to find a user manual
    To restore this machine to work (last time i used it was working over 10-15 years ago)
    to find parts for it.

    Those sockets are different tap points on the transformer. How you patch in determines the current.

    Unless I'm missing something, the data plate is telling you where to plug each cable to get the desired amperage.
