I have an older Lincoln Tombstone, probably from the 80s that I bought used a few years ago. Works great, but the previous owner removed the back panel at some point and never put it back. Does anyone with a similar machine have a picture of the back that they wouldn't mind posting? I want to make a new panel to make it a little safer, and I would like to include any vent openings I assume it originally had. Thanks in advance.

Probably could copy the back of a current model if you happen to have a dealer nearby. That welder does not seemed to have changed very much over the years. They seem to be fairly durable. Mine gave up the ghost after 35 years .....

Great little work horse.
What I learned to stick weld with, then owned one for a few years.

Thanks everyone, I think I found what I need. Looks like I just need to put some openings up by the fan and it'll be fine. Finally got an electrician buddy to come run a dedicated 50amp outlet for my welder, used to plug it in the dryer outlet. Figure if I'm gonna leave it plugged in, I better close it up. Updating it with a 10' #6 soow power cord and if I can figure out how to get to the lead connections inside I'm gonna replace the worn out thin factory leads with 25' of #2 cables on each side. Hopefully I can get another 30+ years out of it.

How about just a piece of expanded metal?

Gandrfab, expanded was my original plan, but I have a piece of sheet metal laying around that's almost the perfect size with no other use anyway. My daughter is pretty close to walking now, and the less deadly things she can stick her fingers in, the better
