If your thinking about picking up welding as a hobby, or even a profession, this will be a fun series and a great place to start! It doesn't have to be difficult or overwhelming. I will help you figure out what you need and maybe save you some money on things you don't.
In this episode, we discuss basic power requirements needed to begin welding. We install a welder outlet and I strike an arc with the 230 AC stick welder that hasn't been fired up in 15 years!

This will be the first episode of the "Beginner Welding" series. This wont be just any ol' instructional video. We are going to be BUILDING SOME COOL STUFF as I share my personal experiences with you.
Thanks for watching and be sure to check back often!
I was happy to see you rotate the receptacle. Takes stress off of the plug and wires and also protects against the possibility of your metal face plate coming loose and falling across your two hot plug terminals.
May be too late now, and it depends on your local code and the distance to whatever is feeding that sub panel, but a main disconnect in that sub panel would be best. Even if that means "back feeding" through a breaker to act as a main disconnect...
Hello, Brandon, Like от меня !!! Пришлось отсрочить бег и поглядеть твоё новое видео. Меня это тоже ждёт летом, когда поеду в отпуск. Буду тащить провод от дома в гараж. Там MIG/MAG, MMA , ленточный станок JET -нужно подновить проводку ! Хорошее видео, фурроров.
Thanks buddy! Your going to need that power to run all that equipment your stocking up on! I plan to have a new video up this weekend! I had to post pone my run also...it was too cold to go out, so I decided to stay in and weld :) Take care brother!
220/240 is standard juice over here in Euroland so we are kinda lucky there. I plug for 6013s because they can be used on transformers (buzzboxes) or inverters (they can "arc blow" sometimes on inverters but rod angle often reduces that massively),
7018s can be a PITA to restart so I only use em occasionally, be interesting to see how you get on with em on the buzzbox.
They are supposed to be kept in an oven blah blah blah, but for home use I just keep mine in the house, I'm not welding any critical stuff. Stick and fluxcore MIG I do outside or by the open shop door with a fan at the bottom end of the shop to push the fumes out.Welding cart for first project?.Now you got all that power, you should be able to charge up your razor :).
Jaques Daniels Hey there buddy! I never had much luck running 6013 on this machine. It could be rod angle like you mentioned. I plan to burn a bunch of various rods and see how it works out. I'm very curious to see how this will run a 7018ac rod. The 6011 rods you see in the video have been sitting in an unheated garage for 15 years! I can't believe they even lit lol! I might do a welding cart project...maybe one to hold multiple welders? So the deal at work was everyone had to go back to being clean shaven by January 1st. So now that everyone was clean shaven and high and tight, boss man decided that the beards could stay...im a bit undecided now! Lol.
I've got what would be that welder older brother... But it needs some serious going through to be consistent. Tried the 7018ac rods and couldn't keep an arc. With new leads and tlc it may do better. I've got several welding projects started but the cold (I know it's not Maine cold but it is Alabama cold) has stalled them for now. Looking forward to this s series...
D Rickard Thanks man. Yeah, I tore into this one about 15 years ago right before it went into hibernation. It wasn't holding its voltage settings. It's all good now though. Maybe I'll crack it open. It was pretty easy to clean / adjust.
Gordon Reiher Hey Gordon! This should a very interesting series. Not only am I going to be teaching a few things, I'm also going to trying a few things I have never done before. We all may learn a few things during this series! Take care buddy!
