 +===== Warning: Power must be limited! =====
 +
 +We have to keep the machine current draw from the wall down below 14 amps to avoid popping a fuse. Yes I mean fuse, not a breaker. The fuse box is locked because you can get an arc flash when changing the fuse if you do it wrong. Popping the fuse will not hurt the machine, but it will prevent any further lasering, lathing, or welding from continuing until someone with experience can swap the fuse.
 +
 +The machine is rated for 32 amp draw max, so don't exceed 40% of any of its max ratings:
 +
 +  * TIG: 250A x 40% = 100A
 +  * Stick: 200A x 40% = 80A
