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! ⇨ SUBSCRIBE to Brandon Lund DIY Builds: https://www.youtube.com/brandonlund THE TOOLS & GEAR I USE 🔴 https://www.amazon.com/shop/brandonlund Any commission earned from the above Amazon affiliate links all go towards helping to support my channel.

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.
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
Good point on the faceplate! I never thought of that!

You answered the breaker mystery I’ve been curious about. Thank you!

Your welcome! Glad I could help!

How much would an electrician charge to install the plug?
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
I would think no less than $200
Steve Lipinski (4 months ago)
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...
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Good point! I still might do that. I think I might even have a spare 2 pole 100 amp breaker. I'll have to see if I can find it. Thanks man!

Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
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!

Thank you for the series. Although I have a different 230 or 400 Volts installation, but as to the rules, it is very useful to see what and how.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
+Jacek Strzembkowski thank you! This will be a very fun and interesting series. I'm really excited :)

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 :).
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
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.
D Rickard (1 year ago)
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...
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
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.

Love your videos Brandon. I’m looking forward to your upcoming welding series. Stay warm!
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
rickbolin Thank you very much! This should be a very interesting series! Take care brother!

Thanks for the video Brandon! Did I miss a video where you made those stars that are hanging on the wall? They look great! 👍🏻😉👊🏻
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Bill's Builds Thanks Bill, unfortunately I did not build those, my wife picked them up and insisted they went next to the copper flag :)
Gordon Reiher (1 year ago)
First! Yaaay welding! And stick welding to boot, which I definitely suck at.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
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!
