It depends on how far away you are going to be away from the breaker box, using a #2 wire should be fine for your welder.

What size circuit breakers should I use for my 225 welder?


Look on the specifications plate...there will be an input voltage and/or current/wattage rating. If you need to convert watts to amperage then you would use the following formula:
p=e x i or watts divided by volts will give you the current(amps). I think that unit is 240vac(mine is) and I use a 40A 240vac breaker and have no problems(thats 9600 watts)..you will want to choose a breaker as close to the max rating as possible...don't go too high or the breaker won't trip if something goes wrong

Lincoln mig welder 180, 230 volt 20 Amp Input. BUT! Manual says use ''Super Lag 40 amp Double Breaker, Plug on Welder Is Nema 6-50 ( 50 Amp ) Wleder cord is 12awg. What wire should be used to wire it up in...


Inspector is correct! In wall or conduit wiring awg will always be greater than "open air" wiring. IE: the size of wire coming from your pole ... it's smaller than from your service riser into your meter. Code allows the cord to heat up... open air will cool it down.

Welder doesnt turn on...


Have you connected the feed from your breaker box to ADJACENT lugs on a dual pole breaker? By code you must use a ganged breaker.

You should use a voltmeter to verify the plug is getting power on teh desired pins.
