    Welding rotator

    This is a welding rotator that I built to allow me to build up a shaft for a project. The bearings for the shaft are insulated from the base to prevent ground current from passing through them. The drive is a variable DC motor, it does not have a great deal of torque, but it does not need much either.

    Hi. The foot pedal allows for interrupted welds. Thanks for the comment.
