comment Can these locks be rekeyed to the same key?
The true question is: can I purchase new lock cylinders that match, for the given three locks?

comment 30amp dryer on a 50amp breaker?
From what I can see you're better off with a 30 amp breaker. The NEMA 14-30R plug/socket you have is 30 amp and you want the weakest link in your circuit to be the breaker.

comment I have paint over unsanded drywall compound. What is the best way to fix it?
Two coats of paint, or one of primer, one of paint? It's an important distinction.

comment Can I use aluminum or plastic sheeting between decking and joists to waterproof under a deck?
A roof deck, waterproof from the start, is a great way to go. Why are you leaning toward this less proven/problematic solution?

The "damage to electronics" would be from spikes, not an overcurrent trip. A 250 amp service won't change that.

What plug is on the end? Are there two? Is there a rating plate where the cords enter the unit? Look up the plug type at the Digital Museum of Plugs and Sockets.

A whole house surge protector can help here. And nothing says the dryer/water heater need to be on when welding.

Your S.D.LEE welder was probably a private label built by the Century company (Century was a pioneer in infinite amp control, as the welder advertises on the face). That may help you find more information. A detail photo of the power connector(s) would help also. Electrical work will require the approval of your landlord, at the minimum. Oh, and a little google work shows: Century was purchased in 2003 by Lincoln Electric lincolnelectric.com/en-us/company/Pages/company-history.aspx
