Ok thanks everyone. I'm heading to Lowes in a few and its #6 copper and a 50A breaker. By the way I used to go on a lot of Storm Damage teams after Hurricanes and such. A lot of people do the backfeed thing right or wrong. When we got to a neighborhood to start restoring power the first thing we did was ride around listening for generators and when we found one we would pull the meter on that house so they couldn't backfeed onto the grid. Then we grounded on both sides of our work and if we missed a generator it wasn't going to last long.

I have a wire fed MIG welder in my barn. It is handy to have and we use it a lot. I also have a portable Lincoln stick welder that runs on a 350 chevy engine. The portable welder has saved my butt many times and the generator is powerful. I can run my entire house on the welding machine if I am cautious. If I had to choose between the two I would keep the portable welder.

I also have a small MIG125 thats good for light stuff and it runs off 120V but isn't good for heavy stuff. My acetylene welding looks like chicken poop so give me a stick welder. I've got the stuff and will be running wire tomorrow.
