Hello All. I have a question about my Home Made AC welder. I built it using the instructions posted here. The out put is 43 Volts Ac. I see all the posts stated 30 plus volts. Is 43 volts to much and should I get it closer to 30 volts? Another thing is the power cable coming from the ac wall outlet. I used the cable from one of the Microwave ovens. It gets a little warm when trying to weld. Should I use a larger cable? Thanks for any suggestions.
I really like the information. I have started my own project and have the transformers both wound with 20 turns of 10 awg insulated wire. I have 23 vac out one transformer and 22 ac v out the other. Will these voltages be ok?
