Typical even your gauge sounds different.
1/8th inch is close as to 3mm so 1 1/2" by .120 is now let me see 25.4 to the inch plus 12.7 is 38.1 mm x 3mm wall thickness. Yup should do good.
Nor West I have a wire feed welder as well but we run 240volts so It may have a bit more bite. I max out at about 3/8th 10mm when its being joined to something a lot thinner so useful for brackets as well. I have a 15amp power point as well that helps make the most of domestic supply.
Happy wife. happy life.
