Where have you looked? Have pics of the outlet the socket fits into?

That isn't the rating of the amp load. There should be a sticker on the welder that specifies the amp load.

A 100 amp load would require a disconnect.

I am new to welding so humor me.
No problem. The above underlined is what you need to look for in a plug. A 30 amp 220v plug will be just fine. Does ithe receptacle look like the kind you would buy for a stove or dryer?

I'm assuming that you WON'T be using the bed outlet for such a device......
