|Subject: Lawn tractor with built in stick/arc welder. Wed May 23, 2012 9:41 pm|| |
I've been thinking of making a stick welder on my tractor. If anyone has searched on youtube about "Homemade welders" or "Alternator Welders" you might have seen this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQQJej8PbKs
I've been thinking for a while about building one for my on-road vehicle and had thought how useful it would be for an off-road vehicle and then thought it would be amazing on a lawn tractor! Just hold some electrodes in a container and put some quick connects and a 6ft cables on it and be able to do some welding on the trail, I know when my tractors axle broke I wish I had a welder just to be able to drive it back to the house.

Nice build. It is actually a ac welder if he removed diode.
