Can I safely power a Syncrowave 200 from either a Bobcat or Trailblazer?

    It might be easier to keep the current house and get a new wife.

      I used to plug my first welding machine into the dryer socket. Worked great.

      A mill will almost certainly use 240v. You can still run that off the dryer plug. You can even run a smaller 3ph Bridgeport with a phase converter off that circuit, only it’ll be limited to 2/3 capacity. I’m running one right now off a 230v circuit that another small lathe is powered by.

      I think you should absolutely cramp your garage full of machinery.

        From Bushytails: "For running cords around, flat submersible pump cable will fit under many doors, behind things, etc, and can be ran through windows with a little wooden shim to keep the cable from being pinched". Hmmm ... direct-bury, solid copper romex, running through the house and duct-taped to the floor? I love it! Do you speak from experience?

        From walker: "It might be easier to keep the current house and get a new wife." ... Awesome!

        From ryanjones2150: "I think you should absolutely cramp your garage full of machinery." Agreed! But this would probably require walker's solution as well.

        All of this is good info. I think I will wait and see where we end up. I have not rented a place for over 35 yrs now, but if I was a landlord, I would not want my tennants digging into the main electrical service panel to add some high-amperage circuits for shop equipment to be used on the premises. Besides, I might lose my security deposit if I burn the place down. But it doesn't hurt to ask about adding some receptacles with a permit and a sign-off from a county inspector. Doubtful, but maybe.
        Maybe I'll just sell my gear and buy a fishing boat. I wonder what all that crap is worth? All that leftover steel and aluminum, accessories, filler rod, wire, electrodes, oxy-fuel torch, air compressor. Maybe there's a guy out there who's wife is complaining about him going fishing all the time and wants to trade?!!!
