Its not a silly question.

On 110 v your new welder will only put out about 88 amps of welding power at welding voltage. This is about right for .095 tubing but a little short for 1/8" plate. It will do it IF YOU HAVE A 20 AMP CIrCUIt.

It will stick weld with 1/16" or 5/64 rod, you know the kind that shakes in the electrode holder? It will pop breakers even with 3/32 rod at 85 amps.

It will tig weld up till it pops your breaker again about 85 or so amps.

Just as a guess you are going to run .030 wire or .035 once you have the correct circuit.

On 110 volts it will run better on .023 wire (like a 110 mig)

enjoy your new toy
