But my main electrical panel is 60 feet away on the other end of the house. Despite it's size and the type of voltage it plugs into, this welder has a lot of power! The cheaper route is to use a short cable. Do check with your electrician on this situation. You may not have the same problems, but I wanted to share my experience. I have the manual for the welder dowloaded from Miller Electric. The doesn't produce any power for the welding generator.

The reason for this is because you don't want the wire trying to navigate through your hose as you feed it through because it can get jammed up that way. Got a welder with a 115v or 230v input. Ive got everything wired ok here i think. There's a reason he works in a store instead of making real money in the real world. After I posted my question here I contacted Miller Electrics online tech service. I think ive solved the problem.

Hopefully you considered all this before you bought it, right? Usually if you have the machine wired wrong it simply will not work. The wire should feed nicely through until it sticks out of your gun without the nozzle or contact tip. Units such as this are usually connected directly, see page 21 of the manual. Don't depend on that peak power rating. I then realized that the three pronged dryer receptacle has two hots and one neutral and only puts out up to 30 amps. I realized I needed an extension cord to go into the laundry room cause there is no 220 volt receptacle in the garage. I just purchased a used Miller 351 Syncrowave welder for my garage.

How to Wire a 230 Volt AC Welder

Is this thinking reasonable or crazy? Though accidents happen especially if your activity is such as this so it is best to wear your proper gear when working. Based on your recommended breaker size, I'll see if they can make the second panel 100amp too. The dryer plug that has three plugs is two hots and a ground. In this example image you can see if we're using copper, we'll use 60°C. There are 2 unused 20 amp 110 v circuits in the garage. I ran a 50 amp breaker with 6-3 wiring according to my electrician.

Spool Gun Hookup Chart

Take a chipping hammer a specially designed hammer specifically for removing slag from stick welds and give the bead a few taps and rakes with it. By the chart you sent, i think the wire is correct, i have a 50 amp breaker, bought at home depot, a stablock panel. To determine what electrode to use, take a look at your work. Thanks in advance for any helpful advice! When hooking up a welder with , you must first understand how the equipment works. That said, if the amperage capacity of the size gauge wire you determine in the chart is very close to what the welder draws you may want to go to the next size larger wire. If this is the case you'd be best off starting a new thread to ask questions rather than using this one. Green or bare copper are normally your ground wires.

You may have to really scratch your head to get a Syncrowave 350 hooked up in your garage. Then, take a stainless steel wire brush and brush of the bead to further clean it. This is the socket on the bottom. The shielding gas you will probably be using is 100% Argon. Which means we'll have to check the breakers temperature rating, and the subpanel terminals temperature rating. Originally posted by bluepower Cope,why don't back off.

Your electrician might be right, though, you may not be able to pull another 125 amps from your existing panel. The money you would spend on rod alone can almost pay for the class, let alone the steel. A 200A weld will draw a lot less, you should have no problem. I'm not questioning your knowledge and or ability, although I have my suspicions, but it seems strange that you would question anyone else's ability when you had to post such a question yourself. The class idea sounds like a good one. I have 3 millermatics in my shop that run off of 230 volts and a 50 amp breaker so that should answer his question about what he should do because i already told him talk to an electrician but not today because it's sunday but on monday he should. If it's too stiff it will jam up.

Currently I have a 60 amp breaker on a 220 line going to a separate garage. This is where you go a little out of the puddle with the arc for a about second to give the puddle time to cool, and then you come back into it. I don't have a problem taking of the cover and installing options, I think I could leave the machine unplugged for 24 hrs to let any capacitors to bleed down then do the job. Now that there is more development out here,l this problem has gone away. I had to finish the job, he was in shock for the rest of the day, pun intended. In the meantime, what do you Guys think? Be sure that the wire is on the correct drive roll size.

The only thing that is holding me up is whether or not I have the juice to power it with. How can I connect this to the sub panel and the 3 prong outlet box that I have. I have a long way to go to be able to use this equipment's capabilities but I want to start exploring. Anyway, I did get some good info, so thanks for the help. I upgraded my home from a 200A service to a 400A service which involved buying a new 400A meter base with 2 200A disconnects and the adapter to connect it to overhead power.
