Get us a make and model of the welder, and any other info off the
spec plate, since many units that are 230/460V also require 3-phase -
if you don't have three phase power you may be out of luck.
Either way, there will be an internal terminal board where the power
cord hooks up to switch the voltage input. You HAVE to open it up
and check this setting, as well as inspect for damage or debris inside
that could cause a short circuit before trying to power it up.
As to the generator, you might be able to hook it up and weld small
items at the lower settings. But I'll betcha you have more welder
than generator, and it'll stall the generator engine if you try
cranking the welder up all the way and striking an arc.
