    Any ideas on age and value

    Can anybody give me an idea on the age of these two and what they might be worth. I know I used to use the one with the tarp when I was Jr. High.

    I’m guessing the Forney is from the 60’s. It’s a $100-150 welder if it has leads and works. The Lincoln is newer and worth more money. Before I paid a bunch for that Lincoln I would look for an old Lincoln Idealarc250 AC/DC. They were much better welder in all respects

    I got both of them for nothing. The Forney has two sets of leads with it and the Lincoln need a new power cord and wheels. Both of them need to be cleaned up inside and out. I was just curious to see what they might be worth.

    Thanks

    I like that the Lincoln is an AC/DC machine.
