Yes, put the welder in series with one side of the supply line.
If you are using contactors, relays, indicator lights, etc., in
your control circuits you can run these off of the other side of
the 240 volt supply line without having to worry about circuit
interruptions when the welder is switched off.
... If all else fails... Throw another megavolt across it!
