Has anyone tried slaping a big step up transformer (110v source to
220v outlet) to a 220v welder. It seems with a large enough watt rating
(between 5000w and 10000w) a step up tranny would enable you to use a 220v
single phase welder on a 110v single phase outlet. Now the fact that a
10000w transformer is around $400.0 may make it a bit impractical but a
5000w would work well on the 175mig machines out there and make them much
more portable. Thoughts?
