Re: Building 220v welder cord
there is probably a differnt pkug between teh 30 amp stove, and 50A dryer outlet right?
if not wire it up for both, and use whichever is closer to what your welding, but the 30a will most likely kick the breaker under heavy load.
I made a 30 or so footer out of 6/3 to use with my ac/dc stick machine, and its too stiff to have much fun with carrying around, but works great.
i use it with my dryer outlet simply becuase its closer to the workshop
too small to be seen, and too big to control, and treated like a walking bomb...
