My old Forney C5 welder.

Recommended Posts

We flipped the 220V circuit through the wall. It has a 40 Amp breaker on about 50' of what looks to be #6's.

 

There is a chart on top that is very worn from setting crap on top of it for decades. I can't read it. I tried Google, didn't find an image of what it looked like when new.

 

I think it's a reference for rod size...?

 

...bad spot for the chart...

Having the chart would be cool, but I think you can get the needed info to use the machine.  I haven't stick welded in many years nor have I thought about it, but I'm pretty sure the rods come with the amp specs.  I would contact Forney and see if they have info on it, some companies keep old manuals and data.  Also, try googling forney c5 photos, maybe you'll find one of the chart in good shape.

That's not R2D2, it's a fucking still disguised as a welder.
