Absolutely. Takes a pretty big welder to run a 400 amp gun continuously. For our purposes a 200 amp would be sufficient. We'll just run ours with smaller carbons and watch the run time closely. Most of our potential projects will be relatively small anyway...

Measure twice and cut once...or...wait, was that the other way around?
