While it's not a JK electrical question, I wasn't sure where to post it, and besides, i'll be using the welder for the jeep.
I have a miller mig welder. 230V 20 amps single phase. My garage has a full panel with plenty of slots and amps to spare.
I plan on putting a receptcle a few feet away from the panel for the welder, plan on using 10 gauge wire, a 50 amp recepticle and a 30 amp breaker (while the welder is rated at 20 amps it has a 50 amp 3 prong plug) does this sound good so far?
At the panel I'll need to use two breakers, one for the black one for the red wires, do I use two 30 amp breakers or two 15 amp breakers (30 amps total)? With the white wire to the neutral and the bare ground wire to the ground strap!
Does this sound correct, or do I have it ass backwards?
