    Got a new welder helppp!!

    I bought a older sears craftsman welder at a auction and have no idea what i have. The only thing I know is the lead is not right. It says that its a dual range, heavy duty, variable amp selection, 35-230 ac amp output..cant find a serial number or a model number any where on the unit. If anyone has info on this machine please let me know or where i can get parts and a manual for it. I have put a attachment on this of a picture of the machine.

    It looks ok from here. My guess is that there is a work clamp at the end of that attached cable. The two upper jacks are probably for the stinger, and should be labeled Low & Hi, or some such variation on that theme. Is there an adjuster up on top?
    Another like it.

    I had the same welder around 15 years ago. The good news is I still have the original owners manual.
    I can scan it into a pdf file and email it to you.
    The model number of the welder is 113.201470
    Let me know.

    Don't hold your breath on getting parts from Sears. Unfortunately some years back they dumped all their old parts prior to say the mid 90's machines and tools. Prior to that they were great and kept old stock till they simply ran out. The good news is that there is very little that can go wrong with those machines so there is little chance you will need many parts other than the plugs.

    I believe Tweeco makes the end plugs for those type of machines. I vaugly remember seeing a few posts where the part numbers have been posted up by some. If the counter guy at the LWS is on his toes he may be able to find the reference quickly. Hopefully whoever here posted the part numbers will see this and repost them for you.

    If the plug is no longer available, its a simple matter to just swap out the two female receptacles for more commonly available conections. Also, if you take apart the amp adjusting mechanism on the top of the welder you'll see the adjustment screw for tightening the mechanism...when I owned that model years ago it would swing to full power as soon as you struck an arc before I tightened down the adjustment.

    Welding Supply https://weldingsupply.securesites.co...:8:UNDEF::::PA has the tappered pin type connectors https://weldingsupply.securesites.co...+Machine+Plugs.

    But, you'll need to measure the receptacles on the machine and compare dimensions as a guy at work has an oooold Craftsman mchine that he bought one of the UP-10 for (larger diameter than the Miller LC-10MP) and it proved to be too small.

    I may have to get some tapered connectors for the M180 if and when I get back to it.

    I wouldn't repeat his mistakes when welding DC either. By the way, if you "splice" welding cables by using Dinse etc twist lock connectors you have more to mix and match.

    No need to worry about a manual, only adjustment is amperage.

    Have a specific question?
