It depends on the welder. If it doesn't need 120V you can just put a wire nut on the neutral and wire a 240V plug. If it needs 120/240V you need the 4 prong plug. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB



If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power

at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND

always use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes

(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)

to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Can you replace a 47UF 160v capacitor on your tv with a 100UF 160V?

That depends what circuit it is in. If it is in a sweep circuit (vertical/horizontal) no because it will change the frequency of the circuit. If it is in a power supply circuit, probably yes becuase it is probable only being used as a filter. BUT if that leg of the power circuit supplies a sweep circuit, no.
