Hemi Powered Hobart Welder

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by four-thirteen, Dec 18, 2004.

  1. It's a 600 Amp Hobart welder, from 1956. Powered by a 354 industrial hemi. The generator is the size of a 55 gallon drum. I just got it home today.

  2. The Hemi is getting stuffed between the rails of either my 29 roadster or my 29 model A truck, I haven't decided which yet. The first step is to get it off the trailer, then see if it will run tomorrow.

  5. um, yes, that is in fact the only designation on the thing to identify it, 56A. So what does that mean?

    Oh come on...leave it alone and use it. I've seen plenty of Hemi powered model A's. Thats the first Hemi powered welder I've ever seen, the coolest welder I've ever seen!

    Keep it as is and find another Hemi for the A!!!

    I had a 300 amp Hobart with an 8CM merc flatty. It was a sheer joy to weld with the sweet cackling of a flathead for tunes. I also had one with the original flat 6 chrysler. Both of those were big by huge, I can't imagine a 600 amp-never seen one before
