a 50 amp circuit just means thats how much juice you can draw before the breaker trips. A 30 amp saw will still only (well should only, unless something is wrong) draw 30 amps. Personally I’d use the circuit. The other thing you can do is just switch the breaker. (of course the welder will then probably trip the breaker)
