    Induction welder

    For a number of years now I have been looks ng for sale me help in building an induction welder. I know about the ones made from microwave coils and those will generate the current/heat to do the job I need.

    Ideally I need something that will weld 1/16th" 1018 cold roll over a 2 surface.

    If anyone has some thoughts or has run across something like this I would appreciate them letting me know.

    Thank you.

    Michael

    I just pulled up how to make an induction welder on Google, there are plenty of links with information.
    I did not open any links yet but I did see a PDF I'm going to look into it.
    I hope this helps.
    Rich.

    My original post should of been "...looking for some help...". And "... The microwave ones are not powerful enough..."

    Must of had my head somewhere else when I wrote it.

    Thanks Rich. I will try Google again. Unfortunately those are the little microwave spot welder ones. But it has been awhile.

    Rich,

    Thanks. A friend gave me another idea that might work better. A resistance welder. I will post a new thread about it.
