My welder was made in Cleveland Ohio, for the record.

We do not know how much worse it can get.

Wish I could make this my signature here on HR.

sad but true. When this happens, I'll buy the faded old welders you see at the pawn shops.

We have had several people contact us looking for Clarke Welder parts. We have been able to source many replacement parts for these machines, such as rectifiers, wire feed motors, tips, nozzles and welding guns. If you need a part for a Clarke welder, feel free to give us a call at ******** we would be happy to help you. We do have some of the parts listed on e-bay the link below is direct to the Clarke section of our store.

*************************************
Please note, as previously stated, the 130 EN and the 180 EN are made in Italy. I believe the 140 EN and the 190 EN were imported from China. So before you buy one of these welders, make sure you verify the country of origin.

Never tried a Clarke welder, but I did buy a Clarke metalcutting saw. Both units burned out trying to make a light cut on the first use. They replaced the first one no problem (although it took several weeks) as they admitted to a defective switch. After the second one, I gave up and bought a Milwaukee. They may be a victim of the times, but I think there are other factors for their demise.

The logo looks very similar. The color is a bluish color.
