Clark mid welder/pace maker

I am welding patch panels on my 66 mustang with a Clark MIG 130 EN welder. Recently I had health issues & had a pace maker installed in me. One of my restrictions is not to be around arc welding unless the welder is 20 to 25 feet away from me. I am not having any luck finding out about extending the welding leads on my welder. Does anyone have any ideas if this is even possible or where to have it done?

The first person you need to talk to is your doctor because there may be issues with being close to the arc. MIG leads over 20' long do not work well at all and this is with much larger wire than what you will be using for body work so I don't think you would have much luck with it even if you could find one that long that fits your machine. Maybe a spool gun designed for Aluminum might solve your problem, I have never had any reason to try to use one with steel wire but maybe some of the other guys have. This would eliminate the problems with trying to force that tiny wire through a long cable. Have you thought of torch welding? Some body workers actually prefer to torch weld and in fact I did much of the welding on my 65 with a torch (Q-panels, radiator support patch, etc) and just recently I welded a lower door skin on a 68 with my Victor torch and a no.000 welding tip. This is the way it was done for many years and it worked then, still does today.

What type of Frequency the welder uses would be your concern.In alot of the Nuke plants i work some welders with high frequencies are not allowed in parts of the power plant because it triggers off electrical and electronic circuits causing an emergency shutdown..research the pacemaker and see what type of frequency it uses and compare to your welder.
