    Looking for switches for Lincoln AC180C welder.

    I am finally getting around to restoring my 1952 Lincoln AC180C stick welder and need some help finding a couple switches. Looking for the Arc Striking Control switch (rotary switch,) and the power switch needs replacing as well. The rotary switch part number is 70241-1. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I'll give them a call. I wonder if there are any online sources for rotary electrical switches that would work for this application.

    Try a M10830-2 selector switch and a S7670 or S9264 line switch.
    The s7670 is used in all the current welders.

    Make sure it is a 3-position selector switch. There's probably something you can substitute. The one on my AC180-C seems rather dinky (delicate), but I don't know how many poles or the contact rating.

    Here's the whole thing. I wanted it for my man cave but to far to drive. Looks to be in good shape. Still has the original Lincoln style electrode holder

    The rotary switch is actually 4 position, with 3 wires connected.

    The s7670 looks like the correct line switch. Cheapest I can find it is $58! Not that it'll break the bank, but damn that's more than I paid for the whole machine. The black plastic is missing on mine, with the metal lever exposed.
