So I have a few questions:
1) my current wiring is 30a, I am assuming that the welder won't perform very well at all with just 30 amps, also the plug is different so I would have to make an extension cord. Is this correct thinking?
2) If I, or an electrician, were to wire an new outlet for me, can it be 12 feet from the box? 100 feet?(also for the 100' run, I am assuming that I will be able to find conduit that will fit both the 250V and a 125V wire with enough size not to lose too much power)
3)Should I wire this outlet for a 50a breaker, or something higher, this isn't my house I am a renter, but I am curious.
4) Are there outdoor boxes that are really able to be outside completely exposed for 24/7/365?
