      What do you mean by transformer? A whole new building may need a transformer but I doubt a welding machine will have such large electrical load. My small 160amp Yamato is just plugged to a normal household outlet.

      Some here add a separate circuit breaker just to be sure. But I have not heard a transformer requirement for a welding machine especially those used for small projects like you plan to do.

        The stated inquiry has been posted by the same member at the sub-forum SMAW (Stick Welding)
        and have been promptly answered. I just hope bro romelabrador reads this and the other reply
        in the mentioned sub-forum.

        Lots of members here have the YAMATO 200 AMP DC Inverter machine and have not required the use of any transformer.

          ano ba source ng electrcity? sa meralco ba? na ka sub meter lang ba?

          dito sa bahay namin meron din akong 200amps welding machine (galing raon) wala naman nagiging problem kahit may ilang apliances ang na ka ON. like ref. 1 desktop pc, ilang ilaw, ilang electric fans. yung TV lang pinapatay namin pag ng wewelding ako. bihira ko lang naman gamitin everyother two months,aprox 1-2hrs lang naman..
          meron transformer dedicated ang meralco para aprox 50 houses or less, pero wala naman nagiging problem or complaint galing sa kapitbahay.

          sa dating office namin, naka sub meter lang. pag meron gumamit ng welding machine ramdam ang kurap ng mga pc monitors,ilaw, etc. kaya napalipat din kami...

          hindi ko alam bakit need mo pa ng transformer.. lol

            Purchased different rod types and sizes. Made some rod storage using pvc pipes too to at least keep some moisture out.



            3/32" and 1/8" rods. High penetration ( 6011 ) , high tensile strength ( 7018 ), filler drag rods ( 7024 ) and the widely used ones ( 6013 )
            saan po kau naka bili ng 7024 na rod sir jay
