    That is not proper the wire is wrong choice should be four wire three conductor and a ground! Now you have a load on a bare wire being used as neutral! The box is not grounded !

      Thanks for the comment, Jim. Again, I’m not a licensed electrician, but the bare ground wire (green screw) is not carrying a load. The welder should only require two hot leads and a ground (no neutral). If you’re an electrician and can elaborate on what’s wrong in this installation, please reply and we’ll update the content in the post. Thanks!
