Re: I need to find a manual for a Craftsman welding...
I think most of the older Craftsman welders were made by Century which is now owned by Lincoln Electric Company. If this is a wire feed welder you adjust the wire feed speed so that the arc sounds like eggs frying, the voltage setting (if any) will depend on the thickness of the material you're trying to weld. If it's a stick welder there will just be a current range control that you set depending on the thickness and type of material you're welding.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Repairman (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Your compressor is made by Porter Cable. You can use sears parts or takes your old parts to a local Dewalt service center and they will match them up with replacements. You can save some money on the bearing by using a generic. Universal bearing number will be found on the dust shield. Most likely the sears part numbers will be the same as porter cable. Dewalt service center will help you with other questions and or instructions. Good Luck!
You can find the manuals for sale for almost all Craftsman units at sears.com and navigate to the craftsman site and then to customer service parts and enter the model number and they will typically show you a parts breakdown of the unit and also offer replacement manuals for sale. Hope This Helps Don
Mike Not sure what was happening when the previous reply was created, but the owners manual is part number 211260001 $7.99 at SearsPartsDirect.com
That said, I'm staring at my own copy of the the owners manual and I can't really see why you would want to pay for one. The only really useful information is the parts diagram which is online at SearsPartsDirect.com. The rest is generic grinder information (support workpiece, select proper wheel, etc.) and CYA (always wear gloves and eye protection, don't remopve safety guards, don't use damaged wheels, don't stick your finger in the light socket, don't cross the steet in the middle of the block, etc.)
so i spent the better part of this morning trying to figure this same thing out... here's what I found.
You need to identify the serial number, which is found on the unit hanging from the ceiling... it will be like a 13953970. I found mine behind the lamp light protector thing. NOT the back with the stickers. 41A5021 is actually not the number that is important.
then go to www.managemyhome.com its a website ran by sears. you have to register, for free. then go look for manuals, in one of the tabs running across the top of the site is a choice for manuals. then search by Craftsman then enter the serial number.
then pull up the owners manual and check out the instructions.
** i found out that the old house i bought did not actually have the same keypad opener as came with the craftsman. so i had to closely inspect all sides of the internal keypad opener (not the one outside) and find another serial number. then i went and got the manual from www.managemyhome.com and realized i needed to add a new 9-V battery before I could proceed. So now i'm heading out to walmart to get that.
after a frusterating morning of service number and internet searches I hope after I get this damned battery the clouds will part and god will shine some luck on me.
