Have you checked the continuity of your test leads, they are of fairly ordinary quality and last 1-2 years before open circuiting. What sort of welder, can be tricky to find an earth on some, if it's a caddy style welder, the bolts attaching the carry handle to the case of the welder are a first go to.

I'm always check my test leads before doing any testing so leads are good,
The welder is a Kemppi Inverter Minarc 151, 110volts
Will try the handle bolts

Thank you southseas
