That welder would work for 3/16" but it would take quite awhile and it'd be hard on the welder... also might have problems with penetration. any bigger than 3/16", it wont work when using gas which you wanna do.
I suggest this welder for alittle over $100 more, its alittle faster and would have better penetration:

you just pop a 220 breaker in there and leave the wire hanging out the box with an outlet on it. when you move take it with you.

how is this done or what would it cost??

also my regular breaker box is about 25 feet from my garage?
The breaker and outlet are around $10 total but the wire that welder needs is like $4/foot.

lol i know absolutely nothing about this but i am going to home depot tomorrow to look into it :cool:
There's more than one type of breaker and a lot of different 220 outlets. Try to figure out which ones you need.

Shits dangerous. Good luck.
