I have just registered and am not sure if I am doing this correctly. I have acquired an old Blue Radium Arc Welder in new condition (still packaged). It says that it was manufactured in Corvallis, Oregon. The manufacturer was Blue Radium Arc Co. It has directions included. It has #M-69 on the box. However, I can find no date anywhere. This is a hand held welder.
Since the State of Oregon has a website that lists the registered businesses, I tried looking info. up that way. I still could not find anything about this company.
Judging from the box, I'm guessing that it could be anywhere from the 30's to the 50's. I don't know a lot about antiques, so I'm not sure. The welder has never been used and is interesting because of the vintage look to it, and to the box. The box says, " Complete with welding and soldering and cutting points.". I'm looking for some help on identifying this. Can anyone be of any help-or know where I can get help?
