Okay, thanks for the quick reply, think I'll go the Lipo route as it seems the cheapest/easiest, since i have to buy everything from scratch anyway :)
Hi, I'm building this, but I don't have a 12v car battery. Alternatives i've heard have been to use capacitors, but I've also seen people make spot welders from MOT's. What I would like to ask is if it's possible to use, like pacheco.lourenco said, a rewinded MOT (or capacitors) instead of the car battery?I actually don't care much about how it is achieved, my goal is simply a cheap solution to plug it into a wall plug (220V 60Hz Eu standard).So far though, through my research, I've come to the conclusion that this is pretty difficult and requires more PCB's, which I'm hesitant to pay for. Last question: What amperage would be necessary to make those welds? How many amps is your battery able to supply @KaeptnBalu?Asking because I might be able to pick up a used one for cheap at the Danish version of Ebay.I hope someone is able and willing to help with their expertise :)Cheers
