I have a Montgomery Wards 250 amp AC/DC buzz box that my dad bought in the early 70's. Aside from being generic and having those infuriatingly short welding cables, it has always performed well. However, I fired it up the other night and it was awfully quiet. It would still strike an arc just fine, but with the fan not working I know that it has no ability to cool the coils. I remember my dad saying that the internals were made by Lincoln, but who knows if that was salesman talk. I need a new fan and am looking for a place to start. I suppose I could go to Grainger for a new fan, but just thought I would ask for input.
