What gauge are the cables?? You may be able to weld, but for how long before you burn the garage down?? I have a good supply of 220VAC in my garage and I can weld.....but I can't weld. I'd have to learn first.....

6 gauge the welder is an old Lincoln tombstone 225 AC only, works on 3/332 rods, my garage is steel and is about 120 feet from the house with a dirt floor so I'm more worried about burning up a rag than the building, last night just as a test I took a link from a recalled ford with rubber bushings and a old used worn out brake rotor and used a 6011 rod to go through the paint and rust and found out the red wasps that are trying to take up residence in the top of the garage don t like the smell of burning rubber and more than I do , I'll post a pic of the stand I built before I set the trailer tung on it if I remember

8 gauge is the heaviest extension cord I ever heard of, but if you have 6 gauge that's even better.
