Diy Spot Welder Microwave Transformer. In this project i am making a diy spot welding machine to be used for building battery packs with 18650 lithium ion cells. #handmadecreativechannelhello my friends, today i will show you how to make spot welder using old microwave transformer.
Spot welders are one of the very few pieces of metal working equipment that are actually very much cheaper to build yourselfthan to buy commercially. Simple diy dual pulse spot welder with arduino controller and screen (microwave transformer based): I’ve spent the last couple of weeks building an arc welder by winding new secondaries onto two microwave oven transformers (mots).

I Built A Battery Spot Welder Out Of A Microwave Transformer By Just Replacing The Secondary Coil With 6 Awg Wire Wrapped 3.5 Times.
The one important lesson to learn from all of this is that high power transformers are not a place where the “fuck it that’ll do” method works; It successfully put a good weld between two 16 ga sheet metal pieces together this evening. I also have a professional spot welder, model sunkko 737g which is around $100 but i can happily say that my diy spot welder o…
The New Winding Will Provide The Current Needed To Weld Stuff.
Microwave transformer diy spot welder. I am measuring 5 volts on my multimeter (not under load, not during a weld). Videos you watch may be added to the tv's watch history and influence tv.
It Produces 2.6V At 1Ka.
The finished welder is powerful enough to handle any household project and the finished product. But when i try to weld some thin nickel strip it burns a hole right through and throws red sparks everywhere. A spot welder works by passing an electric current through two thin pieces of metal.
After That, We Removed The One Copper Coil Of The Transformer And We Passed A Single Coil Of A Copper Cable Through The.
Therefore, we made a metallic frame with a stable basis to support it and we also made some holes on it in order to be able to be screwed on the spot where it will be located. In this project i am making a diy spot welding machine to be used for building battery packs with 18650 lithium ion cells. By using really thick cable we can reduce the thousands of windings to a couple which will provide loads of amps.
The Welder Works Really, Really Well.
In fact, between salvaging a transformer out of. Simple diy dual pulse spot welder with arduino controller and screen (microwave transformer based): But when i try to weld some thin nickel strip it burns a hole right through and throws red sparks everywhere.
