    Default Help Needed, WW2 German Field Welding Set

    Hi, I have what I understand to be a WW2 German field welding set, 2 stroke NSU engine.

    Originally painted in ordnance tan, the sprung base still works, small amount of movement in kickstart.

    I'm not sure if its a 'field welding set' of just generator? I am looking to sell and was looking for any information as to what it actually is?

    Any information would be gratefully received. I have found an old thread here of something that looks very similar.

    German generator

    Thanks in advance.

    Not my field, but it certainly looks like a field generator to me. More than a few parts missing, however. Interesting find!

    Definitely a gennie and not a welder.
    There is no transformer for starters nor controls.
    It would be a great restoration project! !

    Looks to be a 3 phase Genny, used to power up any kind of field installations - command, medical and radio posts, camps, workshops etc. The skid could be fitted to a small trailer if necessary.

    Many thanks for the replies. It has been standing in a barn and should have sold years ago as it has deteriorated somewhat. I have no idea what it is worth (?) and I will be listing it on eBay tomorrow with no reserve if anyone is interested.

    Regards
    Michael
