• Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. EDIT -> I manually batch updated about 25 people stuck on the email notification. Try logging in now with your password. EDIT -> May 8/23. I updated another bunch of users stuck on email notifications. Try to login if you are stuck. If you really can't get in contact us on facebook or if you know a forum member get them to ask us.

If you're using it outside make sure it's rated for cold weather. nothing worse than fighting with a stiff cord out in the cold.


I concede the argument that offshore claims are untrustworthy.

I have run both my 250A MIG welder and my 200A TIG welder on a PA 50A extension cord (50 ft), FWIW.
