    330 A/BP black face plate needed

    I would like some advice on where I could find a black face plate for a 1983 330 A/BP. The one I have is in very bad shape it bent up and you cant read half of it. I have started a restoration of this one and I hate to have to use the ugly one.
    Thanks

    Thanks, I looked at them already. There is probably not much demand for this on an old and obsolete welder but, it's what I have. I would be happy with a used one almost anything is better than what I have.

    Im surprised they don't have one listed. I know a few people that have that welder. My one friend has the unit his father used at CurtisWright back in the 60's . You should give them a call, they might have something, just not listed on web. They can make them on the computer, and print them up pretty easily. Sign guys can make them up and print them in vinyl, like the car/truck vinyl wraps. They might not be as cheap as the control plate site.

    I haven't bought one for my econoTwinHF yet. Its a black plate with white letters. to fix worn lettering, and add new options, I used a PTouch label maker with white lettering on clear tape. Many of the ones I see on craigslist have been written on in magic marker.
    Some even have the old Dymo labesl on them , often very faded.

    Pics ?

    Re: 330 A/BP black face plate needed

    Since I am restoring this machine I would like a nice face plate. My face plate is not even good enough to scan and make a decal. I have a vinyl cutter so I might could cut the main parts out if I had a good scan of one. I have an older machine with the silver face plate so I may be forced to use it or scan that one but, I really don't want to go that route.

    That looks plenty decent enough to work off of... I have 'repaired'(digitally) old photos worse than that since you have a vinyl cutter anyways section it out if you can't do it whole... get a hires scan or pic of it then remaster it in photoshop or you favorite editor... I like the Gimp myself.

    Or fix it digitally then send the file out to one of the engraving/printing shops they can screen you a whole new panel then you can cut/mill out the openings.

    Have you looked to see if you can get one from Miller? According to this you can order one by model and serial number.

    if you can run faceplate through a copier and give me pdf images, even if they are sectioned images, i can convert / draw and size accordingly into 1 drawing file for recreation for silk screening (like original) or an engraved plate. I too have a welder like that. i have been meaning to recreate a faceplate for. I have white face plate. I have a plate engraver that I make signs with. Just have not had time to dis-assemble my welder to measure and scan the faceplate. I know many people don't recommend them for aluminum but I don't seem to have trouble welding aluminum with it. Expensive welders with all the options make welding aluminum easier but you can create nice welds without the fancy expensive weld control features once you get to know your welder. I really like my 330 A/BP.
