Surge protector

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a surge protector for their welder?  I didn't worry about thunderstorms much when I had an old school copper wound beast, but my fancy new inverter/electronic power unit is perhaps a little more sensitive to surges?  Try to remember to unplug it when I leave the shop but don't always.  

Recommendations for 240v 60 amp single phase surge protectors anyone?

I don't use a surge protector for my inverter welder.  I keep it unplugged (so I don't have to remember to do that) and plug it in when needing to weld; unplug when finished...just like turning off the lights.  That doesn't cost any $$ either.
