Anyone have a vintage Maquette welder?

john_in_maMarch 11, 2005

Purely curious. I'm not looking for any particular info, just wondering if anyone here has an older one. Want to hear what you think of it.

I just traded (old mini drill press, mini scrollsaw, little motor, and beat power hacksaw) for this lovely machine and 15 pounds of new rod:

295 amp total output, fan cooled, 10' leads, 140 pounds of angry welder. Looks like late '60s vintage. Probably all copper. Just need to put in an outlet and we're off to the races.

I have an old Marquette welder. It goes from 25 to 275. I got it for a hundred bucks from some guy that had it sitting his diveway with a for sale sign on it.
