This is the real deal for a 50 amp welder.

This caused a complete change of plans for my wiring project in my garage. I was about to head for Home Depot to spend 140 bucks for 6 gauge wire and wrstle with that stuff around the walls and through the rafters so I can use my new Hobart 210mvp. Instead I just picked up 3 feet and will put the outlet under the breaker box.

It makes more sense to me because I'll be able to wheel my welding cart all around my garage. They are also selling a 40 ft one for 170 bucks. No plastic all heavy rubber. Eastwood Heavy Duty Welder Extension Cord 25 Ft
