welding question

So can I weld on the cart(trailer) that holds the welder while the welder is running or will that fry it? Should I use a secondary welder to fix the cart?

I have some really old cables and the insulation is cracking off in places. So.. sometimes the ground cable is touching, and sometimes the hot cable is touching. Sometimes both are touching and the machine runs wide open. Last week I had to retape the ground cable and this week I will start retaping up the bad spots in the weld cable. But the short answer is yes.. if your cables are insulated correctly, you can weld ok and it will work just fine. Just keep up with the cracks in the cables.

Used to weld on the bed of my welder truck all the time. You might want to drop a chain from the trailer to the ground so you don't get a static buildup . Never had it happen but I've heard it can.

I have a welder attached to my service truck and weld on stuff clamped in the vice that"s also attached all the time. Think about it his way. The welder is attached to the trailer, the ground is attached to the welder and the trailer, so it"s all connected anyways.

I hope not, I weld on a vise mounted on the back of the welding truck all the time.

Good question! I started mine a couple days ago after sitting a while, wanted to strike an arc to make sure it was working. Only metal around was the trailer, I was afraid to try it. I will be watching for an answer too.

We weld on the well casing which is in contact with the drilling rig which has the welder attached to it and have never had a problem.
