    Ranger 8 Question
    ZAF-LLC
    I recently purchased a Miller 251d hf box brand new for an extremely reasonable price. Been looking around for a good miller portable capable of running it. I came across an awsome deal on a ranger 8. 100 hours on unit. 200 foot of lead, stingers, and air arc lead. For price of leads. The issue is...

    Welder and generator outlets on same circuit
    wwdubose
    I currently have an outlet wired in my shop with 10/3 for my generator that goes to a double pole 30 amp breaker in my sub-panel (red and black goes to breaker, white to neutral bar, green to ground bar). I only use this to plug my generator into for back-powering the house (not used other than that)....

    Adequate 220 voltage for MIG
    wwdubose
    I have a shop with a sub panel that is approx 150’ from main breaker. I have a 50-amp double pole breaker in the main panel with #6 wire running to sub panel in shop. I’ve never had a reason until now to wire 220v, but plan on getting a Hobart 210mvp or 230 Ironman. Am I wasting my time wiring 220v...

    I am jumping head first into welding... I have no welding experience and less brains. Also this is my first post on the forum...as if you couldn't tell.

    Just bought a new to me Miller Big 40, JG073678, July of 1986 I think. The welder had been sitting for a couple of years. I have cleaned the fuel system, and gave it a good tune up, it's running great and welds super smooth, but my issues are it doesn't have any AC voltage at the receptacles. Also the...

    Hobart 210 MVP - Another generator question.
    Nipper
    A while back I asked about what size generator I would need to run my 210MVP and Keith posted the information. I cant find that post now and it may have been deleted with all that spam we had a while back.

    If someone could post that information again it would be appreciated.
