    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.

    Did you ever go ahead with the repair? My Lincoln Fleetwelder 200 has same situation, and I would like to get that feature working.

    I mean the whole unit only has three controls including ON/OFF lol

    Mine still has the old Lincoln style holder and the KFC (Krispy Fried Conductors) leads.
