    Thoughts on this older Hobart?

    https://offerup.com/item/detail/637061046/

    $50, which wouldn't kill me if it turns out not to work, but I would like to have some thoughts if it is even worth that before thinking about messing with it. No leads, so no way to test it as far as I know. I for sure don't have any leads.

    Thanks,
    Russ

    Unless you want to clean it up for your man cave, I'd say no.

    I’d pass. It doesn’t have the neat Art Deco styling that the old Hobarts do. I restored one for my man cave, but it still works

    Ok, thanks.
    I wasn't thrilled about buying one that I couldn't test anyway.
