    SPOT WELDER FOR CAGES HOMEMADE

    A simple construction using the primary coil of a transformer of an old microwave oven.The secondary was destroyed and after replacing thiw with a new coil of two rounds we have about 2 V and about 600 - 650 Amps.I used copper electrodes 4.5 mm thin with special shape. . I 've also used a footswitch in the primary to have my hands free.It works perfect. You can see the use and the construction here.
