I have a Lincoln AC/DC 225/125 "Tombstone" welder. I have it connected to a 50A circuit and everything works fine. Does anyone know what the actual AMPs draw of this unit is at various settings?
I need to weld some relatively thin material ( < 1/8" ) that is out of reach of where my welder is. However, I do have a Honda EU6500is generator that can handle 30 AMPs at 220V.
Is there any way that I can determine if this generator can power the welder with the welder set at around 90 AMPs DCEN?
I don't want to go to the expense of making up a twist-lock to 6-50R adapter cord only to find out the welder will need more than 25-30 AMPs from the 220 mains to deliver the 90 AMPs of DC welding current.
