Rookie welder here, with a Millermatic 211. I just bought a Miller welding table, and the brief instructions with it say "if you wish to ground the table...".
I spent yesterday evening googling the subject, and there are a lot of strong opinions out there, on both sides.
I plan to use the welder with two power sources, depending on whether the work can be moved into my shop to the table or not. In the shop, there is a dedicated welder outlet with its own 240V electrical circuit from the barn sub-panel. The second power source for outside is a Honda portable generator, which is floating ground.
My question really related to the table, but if there are any recommendations about the generator I'd appreciate those as well.
