    Novice welder

    I am teaching myself stick welding; I am in need of the user manual for the following welders:

    1. Sears Craftsman 230 Amp Continuous Control Arc Welder Model 113201330

    2. Sears Craftsman 230/140 AC DC Infinite Arc Welder Model 93420129

    Where can I find them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Those are pretty simple machines - what would you like to know about them?

    Bottom one was a 3 second google search

    Thanks a lot for your replies.
    I am being cautious because these machines have not been used in a long time and I am not the original owner. Both of them started. I can't change the amperage in the the older one (230 AC).

    If it has been setting for a long time, it may take a little finesse to move the amp control. Try loosening the knob, then pushing it back and forth several times. I have a similar Craftsman AC buzz box, and it sat for years unused, as I just use my Miller machine. Some months ago, I decided to do a little stick welding with it, and it also was stuck, until I jogged it. Worked great, and still welds just as good as ever.

    BTW, I bought it new in 1980.

    Some of these are built by Twentieth Century, now Century. Pretty basic. I couldn't lay hands on my Twentieth Century manual from 1974. What's left to know?
