Arc Welder Built From Two Microwaves

WTF !? has this Crazy Old Man been doing?  Building himself an arc welder from some junk microwaves!

Take two microwaves, rewind the transformer secondaries with #10 wire. Stick the transformers in an old computer case along with fans from one of the microwaves. Wire everything together and use a car battery jumper cable to deliver the juice.

How easy is that?

Now why would I do such a thing? Because I'm a recycling, cheap ass old man is why. 

This little buzz box puts out about 80 Amps and cost about $20.00. 

It is also a lesson that you should learn. Always look at objects not as they are intended to be seen but what their possibilities are. Don't be normal, think outside the box and the bun.

You can find microwave stick/Arc welder plans using Google.
