Running a computer on a gas generator is risky.Problem is over voltage.I have found some generators putting out 130 to 135 volts on light loads.Back to welders.I was looking thru a 1952 Popular Mechanics magazine.Plenty of little welders advertised.The 4 Way welder was 19.95.My father in law gave me one.He got it from his brother who said it made the wiring smoke in his shop.That welder has 2 coils of resistance wire.The electrode holder can have 120 volts AC on it open circuit.I never used it because I dont want the high side of the AC line in my hand while Im kneeling on the ground.Gloves do get wet and have thin spots from wear.20 bucks was half a weeks pay for many people in 1952.The 4 way Welder was a ripoff in that time.The 70 amp 120 volt welders are still being sold.You have 2 of them that dont work .If you only weld a few hours a year you will never be a good welder.A friend who welded for a living told me that by the time you are good at welding you wont be able to see good enough.I have tried the little welders,They just dont work well.A 1/16 welding rod is hard to control.An author of the book Aircraft Welding said this.Dont try to use a cheap wire welder, It will sour you on welding and make you give it up.
