My oldest is a 1952 Lincwelder 180 C. The Dialarc is 1974, and might be the second one produced according to the serial number. The Syncrowave and the Idealarc are a bit newer.

I did see a tap today for a #0000 screw, 160 threads per inch. Around $45.

The sash weights I'm familiar with are cast iron. Probably white iron due to fast cooling. If so, it is very hard due to iron carbides that form. As in 47 - 65 Rockwell C.
