Since it's plugged into a receptacle, I'm assuming that it has it's own switch in the unit? Or is the receptacle controlled by a wall switch?

I don't know how much this will help you, but this is...

I have a similar welder (Lincoln SP140). Your dryer is 240v and your welder is 120v. There is no adapter and trying to make one is a very bad idea.

If you're doing small work, you can get a 15...

Unlikely that 1 fuse will kill power to everything, most Toyota's I've worked on did have a fuseable link near the battery that would kill the entire system. It's not very likely that the fuseable...

I've only done a few, but what I did was on level ground, only jack up 1 side to get to the bolt that had to be removed, then let the car back down level. It's supposed to be running in park, then...

Live an learn, we all make mistakes. Did you check the fluid level? There would be no harm in throwing in a quart to see if it starts working. Overfilling the trans is a pretty low risk at this...

Not even a fluid/filter change? The first step is checking the fluid level. What you describe could be low fluid, it could be many things, so start with the cheapest/easiest. If you find that the...

Edit: Marq1 beat me to it. Step drills make a very nice hole in plastic and thin sheet metal. When you get to the size you want, you can use the next size up just a tad gives a nice chamfer on the...

That's where I got confused, he also said the originals had 5 bands, so I assumed that there was a color in between the last 2 that I couldn't see on my phone. It would have to be red to be 22K,...

I'm not an electrician, I'm sure someone will help you out that knows more than me. But, it sounds very odd that someone would bury wires to feed a garage sub-panel, then bury a wire back to the...

Thanks guys, I just talked to an electrician and he's coming out next week to give me a quote. He pretty much said that same as you guys. Even if I only want 1 circuit, it wont be much more to run...

Would doing this still require grounding rods for the shed? I am tossing around the idea of adding a single 120v outlet to my shed that's about 3 feet from my garage. It'd be nice to have a plug in...

Might find something at Surplus Center, I've found some pretty odd and hard to find things on there. I found an identical fan motor for an old Lincoln welder once that was 1/10 the cost of getting...

Can you turn the compressor by hand? Did the instructions clearly say to add 7 oz of PAG? Many compressors come pre charged with oil for the whole system. If that's the case, adding another 7 oz...

Good news for me. The inspector stopped by first thing this morning. For $100, he checked over the service and told me that the SEU cable has no damage and can be reused. Only the weather head...

This service is for the garage only, so I don't think it requires a minimum of 100 amps. Sorry, I should have been clearer on that. It does have a 100 amp main breaker in the panel though, so this...

Service entrance cable replacement
