Arc Welding Advice? Answered
My father-in-law just gave me this 295 amp arc welding rig (he's forbidden to use it anymore--pacemaker.) It's complete with mask, rods, etc. I've never welded before, and have a couple questions:
-- Any good books or tutorials to recommend?
-- I live in an older home (1930s), which has bus fuses and certainly can't supply 295 amps without burning out (or down.)
Should I get a separate service installed for the garage? Is it expensive? I've looked on the power company website, and it's typical superficial information for the average customer...
