Homemade AC ARC Welder • Update 1

Recently I've been working on an AC ARC Welder. I've been using a video from for basic instructions and the MOT salvage tutorial series from

Following are some pictures and explanations.

This is what I have completed at the moment.

These are my homemade copper lugs.

This is my homemade clamp.

The stinger attached to a 5ft length  8 gauge hookup wire.

My rewired secondary.(16 turns of 8 gauge hookup cable)

With the homemade case.

 I currently only have one MOT that is the right size. I have another but, It is to small.

WARNING do not attempt to build this without proper electrical experience.
