Dryer Cord: Which Wire Ground

I am also using my dryer outlet for a welder. The welder does not have a cord, just 3 wires. I know which of these wires is the ground. I bought a dryer plug to match my outlet. I know that the L-shaped prong is ground but I don't know for sure which of the wires coming from the other end of the cord is ground. I'm assuming it's the middle one but reeeally don't want to just guess.
Thanks,
June
