    That is too bad things turned out this way! I was sure hoping to see you get that thing going.

    Me too, maybe somebody will need some parts to keep their relic going. This thing is in amazing shape for its age other than the obvious failure

    Well, if you don't get a nibble on the sheet metal Jenny and I are always looking for something to take up space.

    Re: New Adventure Begins

    Maybe you could pick up a whole generator around somewhere too.

    Or buy a running and welding Big 40 for $800 and put in the enclosure. I don't think these were a very robust design generator

    I have seen auction torpedo SA's up your way go pretty cheap. You could graft one of those on possible.

    Re: New Adventure Begins

    We used to have similar vintage welder/generators in the paper mill that I worked at.They ran magnetos with hand cranks,really cool.I don't know who made them but I'm sure it was GE or Westinghouse.We used them for remote outside work where they lived with very little preventive maintanence care,just when we had to use them which was more for welding than power.

    This Westinghouse is a beast. I'm sure it was impressive back in the day

    Re: New Adventure Begins

    Well since the generator had a catastrophic failure, I scrapped all the copper out and used the housing and made a counterweight for my Kubota tractor. I bolted the field coils back in and welded field coils in from a scrapped SAE400. So it's heavy enough for sure. The old Westinghouse lives on

    Re: New Adventure Begins

    Good idea. I would love for somebody to get some use out of what's left. They are definitely a rare bird.

    I was pleased. Now I don't have to leave the 72" tiller on to be able to lift something

    for counter weights I bought rear wheel tractor weights about 800lbs each, I got 2 and mounted a hitch bar to the weight and it hangs from the 3pt hitch bars, nice and compact, I use to leave the flail mower on, but that was bulky when working in the woods moving stuff around..

    Re: New Adventure Begins

    I hear you. I don't think I could tear the old Westinghouse up if I backed into something with it.
