Yes indeed. Without a scale to go by but I'd guess about 360 mmf . :-) Now you're into stuff I grew up with and worked with for 20 years . Note! the description I used. Long before the advent of "pico" made the scene. :-)

If you got it to run on ac it most likely works like a hand drill motor those will run on 120 ac or dc.

Time to raid the used drill pile for a variable speed trigger and you would be well on your way to the weld positioner easy peasy

Then you could have your other part for something else.

Calling a Variable Transformer other than a Variac is just going to confuse people, so call this Duck a Variac and if you want a specific manufacture then call it out with Variac.
Variac is an adopted name like
Allen wrench = hex keys
Crescent wrench = adjustable wrench
Channel locks = water pump pliers...................
