Default Track Torch ID

I picked what appears to be a nice Track Torch fairly cheap at auction for $100 w/o track that works fine except for one dead spot in speed reostat. It has a ESAB plate with sn. only, no model no., however it has STRIPPER stenciled on one side. I thought I might replace the reostat but could not find anything on it by Googling. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow hopefully. Can anybody help ID.

Might be a UK/US thing but over here we spell it Rheostat (with the H0 maybe that will make a difference in your search results?

Well you are right 'rheostat' but well at 2 am? I am trying to find the model no. Can not find anything called a 'Stripper' made by ESAB.

What's the serial number, perhaps the model number is in the serial number.

If it has a wire wound rheostat you may be able to clean the contact surface and get it to work again. If it is a closed potentiometer then flooding the thing with contact cleaner may work to fix the dead spot.
