Mine come in the side of the Transformer and out the bottom. The Transformer is mounted about five feet off the floor. The box with the SCR and kill switch is mounted on the side of the Transformer. I don't use welding cable and I know Steve did, but I'm not sure why. I found his thinking on the electrical end to be pretty good but I've not gotten the thinking on the welding cable.
