Would have been interesting to make a mark on the pulley and a corresponding mark on the belt and see how far it slipped in 30 seconds of welding. My bet is that belt slip is half your trouble with engine speed and terminal connection problems making up the other half.

Also, if you get 'er working good, keep a gas can handy. That Wisconsin will get real thirsty under steady load.
Many times, failure is success in disguise.
