Welcome Russ,

I don’t have any experience with that machine, but looks to need some serious power for welding the studs. I think Scott is right though, you put the ground from the welding power Supply to the work, and the positive cable feeds thru the stud welder box, which just is a timer for the gun to supply welding power when triggered.

Question would be, can you get the studs that will work in this machine, and have a big enough welding power source for the size you want?

Like Milo said, probably will not need listed amperages welding to sheet metal though. You would just keep turning it down til you stop blowing holes in the sheet metal, and the studs are attached as strong as desired.
