In some of the videos I have seen there is a large suction pipe or hose above a welding table to collect the smoke and I am wondering if anyone here has any information on a machine like this.

    Ground clamp
    bulldog7
    I just purchased the 100 flux core welder and it seems that the ground clamp could be better. I am wondering if it is okay to change the clamp and what would be a good choice to replace it with? Also if I want to use an extension cord what amp and maximum length will work. Thank you for any information...
