matts37chev building your cart, is supposed to be your first welding project

(nice looking machine)

ToddMcF2002 New toy just unboxed! BTW that cart is a COMPLETE piece of dung from Lowes fresh off the boat from China, do not buy at any cost. The cart is warped, and was a big struggle to bend everything to fit, heck even the cotter pins didn't fit the axle. Low standards even for China

ToddMcF2002 Yeah I know.... I'm brave but I'm not running another circuit. That's for them electricians! Next time I have one at the house I'll consider a second 220.

matts37chev very nice
now go weld somthing then blow some air on it
05-06-2011 04:13 PM
ToddMcF2002 So here is the end result. The socket on the left is for the welder, and when in use the hanging plug will be swapped with the compressor plug. Pretty easy job... after asking 4000 questions

ToddMcF2002 I bought a 6-50R receptacle today to mount on the wall next to my regular dryer receptacle I plan to use for both welder and compressor. My plan is to buy a basic dryer power cord and wire it in to the 6-50R. That way I can use a standard 6-50R/6-50P 25 foot extension for the welder ($50 for 50A rating) and not have to construct a custom extension cord.

ToddMcF2002 Awesome guys thank you!

you will be good to go

05-02-2011 12:31 PM
crownver I looked on the Lincoln site and the welder only draws 20 amps. The dryer would be a 30 amp circuit so you should be good to go. What does the compressor draw?
05-02-2011 12:24 PM
ToddMcF2002 The dryer wire is about 30 feet.

I found some specs in a PDF, I believe the answer is 20A...

Input Current @ Rated Output
20A

Input Power is listed as:
208/230/1/60

Rated Output Current/Voltage/Duty Cycle
130A/17V/30%
130A/20V/30%

Output Range
30-180 Amps DC
50-500 ipm WFS
(1.3-12.7 m/min)
Max. OCV: 33

matts37chev again, i'm just worried that the dryer circuit is not big enough to support your welder.
how many amps does the welder say it needs?

what size and how long are the wires for that dryer?


if you can put the wires on the compressor, you can make the extension cord
