I built a homemade AC/DC welder. I used some big 400 amp 250 volt diodes for the full wave bridge to get the DC.It welds with a 1/16 to 5/32 rod fine and does stainless great too
I heard that there was plans someplace that you could use an arc to get the HF necessary to weld aluminum with.
I am not sure of this is before the transformer, after the transformer and before the diodes or after the diodes and in the welding leads.
Is there somebody here that could explain how that is built or guide me to the plans?
thanks a bunch in advance.
Please reply to the group and send a copy to rbodell AT tampabay DOT rr DOT com so I am sure to get it. I don't want to miss this. Bob
