Don, this welder thing reminds me of motorcycles. There is one group that won't even acknowledge some one on a non Harley bike. If you ain't ridin a Harley you ain't s**t.

I have four welders and they suit my needs perfectly and one happens to be a Bobcat. I think the folks here are in the same category and have as much welder as they need.

I don't plan on going squirrel hunting with an RPG either.

JT has the chart on his website, but you need the serial # and possibly the code # to date the machine.

Jack I'm 90% certain hourmeters have always been an option.
Now I gotta wander out to the weeds and look at the residue of the one I bought used in 1965 and verify that it has a meter on it, just to be sure, but I think it has one.

My SAM-400 is a 1979 model, and an hour meter wasn't even an option.

The 1963 machine has an hour meter on it, so they were available back then.

The old timers tell me that Lincoln first put hour meters on it the 80's. Of course everybody put their own on for years before that. The same oldtimers say that starters were an option up until about 1970, when they became standard equipment. Nobody would spend the money for a starter when they had a welders helper that had to crank the thing. Most old ones have been retrofit with starters by now. Almost every 50's model I see has a starter on it. Hand cranks were standard well into the 70's and I'm guessing maybe up into the 80's.

Now Doc, don't go gettin all spell happy. I go back to the days of Caddilac HURSES with the suicide doors. The Superior Coach dealer here also owned Sterling Siren, and set me up with a tradein for a service vehicle so I could run all over NY servicing fire house sirens. I never could talk him into putting a fire engine red paintjob on that old girl though.

I'm guessing the helpers also knew how to tune a magneto pretty well to!
