    OLD Sears Welder

    Good day:

    I am new to the site and am seeking information regarding an old Sears and Roebuck Model 2019 portable generator/welder.

    It is a 180 amp @ 25 volt welder and a 5 kw 120/240 generator. See attached photos.

    I am seeking an owners manual and/or wiring diagram. Most of Sears welders were made by others so any leads, play on words intended, would be greatly appreciated.

    That is an Onan model #. It looks to be in pretty good shape, for its age. Good luck with it.

    Dear Mike:

    As I research it, it is an Onan 5.0TJ-343E, early to mid 70's. Does it work? interesting question. The engine runs but needs some TLC. I have 25 v on the weld lead and 120/240 on the power leads. It appears to be missing the welding amperage control from the front.

    Maybe when I get the engine speed stabilized I can try to load up the power outputs and throw an arc, 180 amp only, to see if it REALLY WORKS. $100.00 at a garage sale

    I think you may have something worth using for $100. Just need to get it in running trim now. You can do a pretty good bit of stuff with "only" 180 amps. Most 1/8" rods require no more than 130. Maybe want to give it a heavy dose of carb cleaner in the gas tank while you tinker with it, to help clean that out some. Can't hurt nothin'.

    I wondered where the amp control is and where the welding leads connect. I see a battery tray with what appears to be battery cables hanging over it.

    The welding leads should connect on the front but the amp control and connections are missing. I suspect that I can jury rig something from an old welder, perhaps even with continuous control

    Go back to the location of the garage sale and ask them if you can look for the missing parts?!
