Homemade AC Arc Welder




What do you think about this video?

gio pring: more story

Brian Wynn: Nice do you have any tips for me as i am going to build one soon 

Hermes Hernandez: alguien que haga una exposición de talleres de garage

Maltfalc: you can use smaller mots, you just can't fit as many turns in the secondary, so you need 3 or 4 in series instead of 2

Digadogup: cool =] be careful.

Guru of Random: So basically you hooked up two microwave transformers, connected them to a pipe and connected another jumper cable to them with a welding rod at the other end? Nice and simple compared to other homemade welders.

bdmsgt: How much Voltage & Amps does your transformers produce?

jay leija: I HAVE A QUESTION IF YOU CAN PLEASE EMAIL ME BACK JAY.LEIJA@YAHOO.COM. I JUST DIDNT UNSTAND THE WHOLE HOOK UP THIS WIRE TO THAT WIRE TO BE INSYNC. RELLY MY QUESTION IS MAINLY ABOUT THE CURRENT CONTROL YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT

panyolito1929: nice video welder hey mr . zhmapper can you try a one pc microwave transformer welder if this good or not plsss!!!!

malectric: Unearthed transformer frames. Bare feet. I hope you used some eye protection. I once suffered an overnight case of arc-eye from several minutes of exposure to a UV lamp and it is not an experience I would recommend to anyone. Imagine waking up in the middle of the night seeing everything through fog, having eyes itching so badly you want to tear them out and wondering wether you will ever be able to see correctly again. More safety please.

Munther G-mail: did anyone try to reverse feed the secondary (with Battery) and tell us what voltage come on the other side. this thing may power the TV or something

Cheezey: Garage sales, thrift shops, neighbors' garbage cans...

hockey14822: How do you get ahold of the microwaves. I don't feel like buying them.

djprice69: So what did you use to hook the primaries together? I plan on making one of these as well, hopefully with three transformers so I can still keep it on 120 (though I'll probably be using two different circuits.) Thanks!

masoud kazemzadeh: hi im masoud from philippines is it posible to use normal transformer instead of microwave transformer? coz i have two pcs of 400 watts transformer input is 220 volts and output is 14 volts

Krisztián Szirtes: Try a little bit thinner electrode for welding. It needs to much hitting.

Krisztián Szirtes: Then he needs a black or green glass and i am not a moron

Evan Drake: Put them in series and you're probably good. As long as you have an output of about 30V and plenty of amperage, you can weld.

Yahjewsha: could i safely concentrate 35% h202 to 60 80 or 90%, in the same way that you did with the 3% ?

ColtDeltaElite10mm: Very cool Vid, thanks!!!! Few questions. How many amps can you crank out? Are you putting a rheostat on that to control your amperage output for "heat?" Now a warning: I don't have to tell you how bad arc welding UV light is. It's WORSE and a higher dose of UV light than what one gets from the sun. Also, it's cumulative damage! Skin cancer doesn't need a "boost," so wear some protective clothing. Also, welding galvanized ZINC in basement! Highly bad stuff that zinc oxide smoke!!!!

Shaun Savoury: do you have a diagram you can email to me? :) (awesome work)

FrustratedBaboon: He is doing this with his eyes closed and he was striking it MORON !! He did pretty good !!! Just like Zatoichi !!!

zhmapper: @Super73VW BlueFlame

jozef danyi: I hate to see comments like " be safe, more safety please, blablabla" This guy knows that he needs to be more safe and he also knows that he should have been safe when making this video!!! He's not an idiot !!

Marcos Raul Morales Reyes: how about wiring 3 transformer so you can have really high amount of current?

smokekilo: flammable crap everywhere

claver99: Hi,nice video i like it.I have a few question, how tight do you have to make those windings,did any of the primary windings gets hot and what do you think would be the cause.I build one with two different size MOT like yours but i notice that the smaller MOT primary windings gets hot quickly.The larger MOT i give 20 turns, the smaller i was trying to give the same but it couldn`t take. So what do you think is the problem.

Cheezey: If you know anything about electronics, you should be able to figure it out.

Jack David: That's amazing! Great vid, can't wait for the next one.

TheKindwolf: Thanks for your ups, very interesting and informative, and although I realise that you are used to playing with dangerous things, I just wanted to check something. The bar that you were using to test the welder looks as if it might be galvanised, in which case the fumes given of when burning off the Zinc, are as lethal if not more so, than the fumes given off when reacting acids. Just wanted to make sure you were aware.}:)

adriel gonzalez: Hi! I don't understand so much english... I'm interested in building a homemade welder, a tig or semi-automatic (mig-mag) welder, and I don't know where to start...I have a 150 amp electrode welder, and I can use that transformer, but what about the winding? Should I change it? And those micro waves oven transformators, which you change the secondary winding, is not overeating after a few minutes of use? would greatly appreciate your response, greetings from argentina!

deadbeatplayer: I have a Question. Why are you so awesome!?!?!? keep up the good work love vids of stuff like this.

zhmapper: @Super73VW I've already made an electrolysis cell as a matter of fact. I just haven't filmed it yet. Search the backyardmetalcasting forums for "oxyhydrogen burner." I plan to film it soon.

onethodeepught: The input on this is 120volts 10amps right?

victor arriaga: really good video, hope u can email me any diagram. thanx

lizardguy9: Mmmm...... zinc smoke, be sure to drink lots of milk!
