Miller welder Mod: 250AC/DC-HF Older welder-what breaker and conductors please?

My friend has a Miller welder Mod: 250AC/DC-HF (yes an old one). He has a 200 amp service in his barn/workshop where this is located. This is totally independent of his residential service being a main panel.

I am trying to find the minimum/maximum amp of breaker and conductor size for this welder. I can hook it up to the panel in the barn but just need to know specifics for this welder. I can't find it anywhere on the net which gives me this information. I believe it should be at least 50 amps with AWG 6/2 with ground conductors.

Suggestions in the right direction is appreciated.

Thanks

That is not enough of a description.There are several models close in model name but very different in current draw.

We need the exact model number or check the ID plate on the actual welder.
