    Hi all!

    I have an old Norweld NL-130 welding machine I'm trying to fix.
    The potmeter is blown, and I can't find a spare..

    Trying to find a similar, but the markings are confusing me..

    The markings on the potmeter are:


    All I need is to figure out the ohm...
    Could anyone please help me?

    Did you check on-line to see if Colvern (who I never heard of), is still in business?
    They could tell you what their marking mean.
    This is my GUESS:
    Colvern must be the manufacturer
    1106/M50 is probably the model number
    10KK is where I'm confused. 10K is 10,000, but 10KK? I don't know why the double 'K'
    8013 Made in 1980, manufacturing week 13 (13th week of the year)

    Sorry I can't give you a definite answer, maybe somebody else can on this site.
    Good luck.
    P.S. Make SURE you put in a replacement that can handle your amp/wattage, when you find out the resistance.

    I'm pretty sure it's 10k ohms, it would be a sensible value to use in such machines. The extra K could be a type or power rating. A picture would help ID'ing though.

    This seemed too easy. Do a search at for: CLR110611S10KK . Take a look at the picture. Is that the part?
