Some one told my husband he could hook up a 8000 watt generator to his welder in order to supply power to our appliances. Is this possible ,and what would he need to do this?

I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and say this question refers to connecting a generator using an existing welder receptacle and suicide cord. In which case, the answer is no, you cannot do this. One little mistake will kill you and/or any power company lineman working on the power lines.

If I've misinterpreted the question, then let us know and we can examine it further.
