Default Welding cable

Hi all:
Sometime today I will be ordering 4 (four) 150 amp diodes to convert the Miller Thunderbolt over to a DC machine. I have about 10 feet of welding cable that I bought years ago and the closest I can tell it is 5/16 to 3/8 inch in diameter. Any idea as to the current handling capability this cable might have? I was hoping to A) make a reactor coil out of it and B) maybe use it to lengthen the welding leads on the machine. The cable on the machine is thicker than this cable and I noticed that my Power Arc 4000's welding cables are the same diameter as this roll of 10 feet of cable. The max that the Power Arc 4000 puts out is 125 amps AC. Any idea of current handling capability?

Hey! What do ya'll say we go to Wallys house?!?!?!
