220v service for garage


I`d like to get 220v power to my attached garage for a welder. The problem is my breakers are obsolete. I have a outlet for a dryer , can i disconnect the wire from the outlet and breaker and run new wire out to the garage?

Very few breakers are actually obsolete. Just because Lowes Depot doesn't sell them does not mean they are obsolete.
What brand are they?
