I've been very busy lately completing my mail-order course on brain surgery. Between that and my rocket science class, I hardly have time to pick my nose.

Get one of those socket organizer strips, either metal or plastic, and glue it in. That is, if it doesn't add too much height.

Sure looks like a Century. The Montgomery Ward Powr-Kraft 230 looks identical. There is a 295 Amp version.

That thing probably sold for $200 (US) new.

Somewhere around here, I think I have a Hmong necklace that was forged from Aluminum. The better ones are coin silver. I got it in a refugee camp 40+ years ago.

It sounds as though you have something like this. I suppose that you could TIG weld the open links to make it stronger.
