    I think you have a neutral problem.
    The way it sounds if you are inexperienced with electrical work.
    do you have a ac voltmeter?
    clamp ac amp meter?

    and know how to use them?

    You got that right I am inexperienced with electrical ... I know where the black wires should be, the nuetral wires and know where they go for 220 ... I have an ac voltmeter with no idea how they work!

    The welder doesn't use the neutral that is why I supect that is the problem.

    Make a sketch of the lay out and take some pictures of the panels.

    how is the shed fed?
    from the house?
    separate service/meter?

    Do you feel comfortable opening the panels and taking some pictures.

    The shed has its own meter, fed from the power company with about 12-18" of wire from the meter to the panel.

    Yes I am comfortable opening the panel and taking pictures. (In the morning)

    ?? Like can I get into the Meter itself? Or are you asking if I have access to get a different meter?

    Before pulling the panel cover, I'd be interested in seeing some voltage readings at first and last outlet and if possible, both legs of your 220 outlet (individually).
    Readings taken with and without lights on.

    I'd wonder what kind of a reading he would get from one of those inexpensive outlet testers
    that plug in and indicate wiring problems using a series of 3 lights. If an outlet is wired improperly or something is loose that would give a quick indication. Yes. I am a lazy guy when it comes to checking current.
    Rather than worry about the things you want but don't have, be grateful for the things you don't want and don't have.

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.
