Before you turn the machine on, you are going to want to put your ground clamp in position.  You can ground to the table that you will be welding on, or you can ground directly to your piece.

After your ground clamp is in place, you can turn the machine on.  Be careful when you turn the machine on, the electrode holder (torch) is now HOT HOT HOT!!!
