Homemade AC ARC Welder • Update 1

Recently I've been working on an AC ARC Welder. I've been using a video from http://thekingofrandom.com for basic instructions and the MOT salvage tutorial series from https://m.youtube.com/#/user/MattsAwesomeStuff

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.
