How to make a homemade Welder (diagram)

How to wire it up!!!!

Overview of my welder

This is simple but time consuming way to make a welder but in the end it is awesome and you pay a fraction of what you would for a normal welder and you need to put in a special circuit but not for this welder. The maximum you will pay is around $50

I found 2 medal halide transformers heres the images will these work for a
welder? has
4 wires on bottom and one wire on top different then the ones your using.

Author Neo Tanatos (1 year)
how many wraps you puted on each secondary?

Author Joshua Puariea (1 year)
keep in mind you could also run primaries in paralell so you don't have to
use two different outlets.

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@TheSuperFungus the reason we did it on that piece of carpet was because we
didnt want to scrap the primary wires and risk a short curcuit :)

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@MrStemkilla u cant use thicker wire because you need 20 raps per
transformer or it wont work also duh it matters what way you wire them what
i was saying in the vid is it doesnt matter how you wire them because you
can use a multimeter and find out what is + and what is -

@lordaboveall you must feel like a fucking idiot because i dont even have
google chrome and i said you sound like you have down syndrome not you look

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@hellrose1228 nice try at trying to be smart, first if we did strip a wire
on accident there is no way possible that it could shock us, the
transformers are grounded so they can short out but cant shock us in anyway
unless we obviously touch the 2 ends of the welder which would be stupid.
also we put it on 2 separate circuits so we dont blow a breaker.

Author Jimmy O. (3 years)
@shortyjk95 eh i broke a good multi meeter with thos and it was no fun....
step dad bought me a new one...way better... and it dose matte rif they
arnt need and wrap around eachother it alters magnetic feanld and you losse
qwite abit of power... you have 2 transformers.. you dont need 20 wraps
each and hears a little help the thicker the wire and the less wraps and
more wraps on the non modified part = higher amps ... and you use more amps
than voltage in welding like that

Author risk3715 (2 years)
So are we to understand that you put a rectifier or diode bridge and some
extra stuff into your welder to change it to DC? Because, based off your
video and the way you wired this particular welder up it's still just an AC
welder. (Just two MOT's and wire, right?) Oh well... kids will be kids and
they'll continue to think they know everything. Anyway, good job for
building a little welder! (even if you don't know how it really works)

Author Mark Stevansen (2 years)
I'm with you brother. Nothing beats an Inverter welder with hot start and

@Electrodudeify sorry to say but your wrong, you wont have the voltage and
amps you need having it in series gives you the amps and voltage you need

@shortyjk95 how did you come to learn such thing? This to me looks
complicated, i was thinking about doing it but since you said the
insulation is a problem, im a bit iffy, what if you just insulated it a bit
more with some electric tape? Would that shut down the magnetic field, a no
no, or would this help keep peace of mind?

good welds for a beginner with a home made welding rig.Btw you should try
1/16 inch welding rods, they work verry well with low amperage welders.

Author TheChipmunk2008 (2 years)
Yes there are errors, but stop being so critical people. It's too common
these days for people to look down on experimentation.. I predict this kid
will probably end up learning a lot from experimentation :-)

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@ismokewead420 ikr sorry about that but i had to bcuz otherwise people
wouldnt understand it and get pissed bcuz they dont know what parts are
what on the transformer

Author Amar Rambo (3 years)
@BrandonJ21984 Series is positive to negative and positive to negative so
what u do is get the negative from one transformer and connect it to the
postive of the other. Then use the remaining positive as a ground clamp and
remaining negative as your electrode holder. Adding a third transformer
creates too much current which i very dangerous so dont do it

Author hellrose1228 (3 years)
im a professional electrician. i wasnt "trying" to be smart i know what the
hell im talking about and have the degrees in electrical science to prove
it. just because you put them on two different circuits doesnt mean you
wont still burn your house down. electricity is nothing to mess with

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@MrFuriousG trust me that is the rod thickness u wanna use i tried 1/16 and
it burns to hot/ just acts as a cutter instead of welding it

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@CocktaiLMolotovX how so?? and how is it crap i dont get it

Author Jimmy O. (3 years)
god you dont know much about electronics but um ya it dose matter what way
you wire the transformers and you should have used a thicker wire but it
looks like you got lucky with the wiring of the transformers and put the
hot in the welding rod and the nutril in whatever your welding that's
pretty important

Author rocknrolldaddio (3 years)
Xclen't vid.Thanx for posting.I guess by now you are getting pretty good at
ur beads.They prolly look like a stack of nickles.

Author shortyjk95 (3 years)
@MrStemkilla ok for the second part but you want a certain amount of amps
and volts so the less amount of wraps means more amps and you dont want to
many cuz itll make it not powerful enough, just saying but when i made my
welder we were researching it for about 2 months
