Well yes and no. If it's the cord feeding the welder, most likely not. But definately if it's either the single wire for the anode or electrode coiled up and even more so if you put iron in the middle, such as a drum. Now you've created a "choke" that creates impeadence. As long as all conductors for a circuit are bundled together, their magnetic fields on each wire cancel out.

I agree completely, I was refering to earlier comments about coiling extension cords.

OK, I'm confused. I have my TIG welder hard wired with 20' of 8/3 to a 100amp breaker. I keep the extra cord looped over the back of the welder. Should I have it laid out doubled back on itself instead of coiled?

What you are doing is perfectly fine. There will be very little, if any electromagnetic effect generated by the remaining looped wire.
