    You have to be the best you can be,,and always have a soap stone in your pockets,Custs,engineers,plant supers,love to dwg pics!!!!!and its Part of your gear!

    Tyler,

    Lots (most) high end welders are 220V single phase compliant, though they do run better on 480V 3-phase due to the decreased amperage draw. This shouldn't be an issue for you in your aplication, I've ran a Invertec V350 Pro at 450amps while Air Arc-ing on 220V single phase plug in, so you'll be just fine. As a suggestion, when you wire in your NEMA 6 plug, make sure to put in a 50 amp circuit breaker.

    Now, before recommending a machine, could you elaborate on your projected application & usage in the immediate future. There is no point in recommending a welder that will not meet your needs. Also plan a little for the future so you are purchasing a machine with some room to grow.

    Do you want strictly a wire feed welder?
    Multi process welder?
    What welding processes are most important to you?
    Later,
