Jagged Edge is absolutely correct, Yuor welder and compressor must be grounded to your panel only. Do not attempt to ground your equipment by driving a pipe in the ground and not uusing the ground at point of service. The equipment ground must supply a direct path to the overcurrent protection device (circuit breaker) in order to trip that breaker asap. The ground is there for protection of personnel. BTW, I've been electrician for a bunch of years.
