60 Amp Breaker for Stick Welder
This may be a stupid question, but the only stupid question is the one never asked I say!
I plan on running a plug in my garage for a stick welder. I have a 100 amp service box for the garage. I was going to run a 50 amp dual pole breaker for the welder. I remembered I used to have a hot tub so I currently have a 60 amp dual pole breaker not being used. Would I be okay running the 60 amp breaker instead of a 50 amp? Better a little too much than too little right? This makes everything easier and cheaper. I'll also use the wire I had for the hot tub plug. I'll just need to pull it from the conduit. If this all works all I have to buy is an outlet and box.
