I don't know, but I would check the specifications carefully.  For the MIG 
welders that are rated to run on either 110v or 220v, there is usually a 
performance penalty on 110v.  Frequently you can't use the highest output 
current setting, and the duty cycle is reduced from what it would be on 220v 
even on lower current settings.

But maybe that wouldn't matter, for what you are doing.
