Looking for info/year about old welder.

I've got this old Dunlap/Sears arc welder that I've had for over 10yrs, looking to see if anybody knows about what year or how old it is.

I've searched the web the last two days and have been looking thru the welding forums with no luck. Hopefully someone on here may be able to give me an idea of its age. Thanks.

I'd bet late 50's early 60's.

I've been searching the web most of the night, still no solid info, stupid Internet!! He he!

Searsparts.com has it on the website, but no info about a date, only that the parts are no longer available.

The search continues!!

Heres my guess... Manufacture date: 1941

I am a Water Well Driller and Pump Service Tech, I install about 200 pumps a year, I also see alot of old ones. Back in the day the manufacturers liked to put the year of manufacture intigrated into the serial number.

J41 S928

Thanks guys!!! I do know of one "old timer", he comes into work once in awhile to do jobs for us. I'll need to pick his brain.

My search results haven't been to good, I'll start researching sears serial numbers.

THANKS!
