    Default thermadyne 190

    Recently acquired one of these little welders. Its wired for 110, and I can make it weld 1/8 rod, although 3/32 will be easier on everything.
    Right now I can plug it in and I have weld power, but I noticed that the machine will also run off of 220. My question is can I just make a small pigtail and just plug it into 220, and make the other end so I can either use 110 or 220. My set up would be machine straight to 220 with a 2 foot cord from 220 plug set up to 110. 220 female on one side 110 male on other side. The machine will have 220 male set up like I can just plug into dryer plug

    Are there jumpers that must also be changed inside the machine?

    This power source incorporates a control circuit which automatically links the power source to the primary input voltage and adjusts it to allow for operation of the unit within the input rating on the input data tag. It is not necessary to manually switch (terminals or links) if the unit is moved to a new location and a different input power is selected.

    Is this the machine?

    Can't open it. But it is just a little machine with a shoulder strap, not much bigger than maxstar 150

    I went ahead and wired it for 220. Welded just fine. Going to make a pigtail, (all I need is the female end to wire up so I can just plug into it if I have a small repair job and just plug into standard outlet) welded 1/8" lo/by, it runs smooth
