Home built arc welder from recycled microwaves.

So I stumbled on to these plans about 6 months ago and finily decided to buy em up:

I'm not affiliated with this guy at all but I was so impressed with the work he put into it I gotta throw him a bone.

This will be my build thread for my monster build. It will probely take 6 months to a year and ill start off with a smaller stick welder and a spot welder to cut my teeth on but the main project is gonna be an ac/dc multi process mig/tig/stick machine ran on gas.
Please feel free to have discussion about your own projects and experiences in between my progress. All things involving welder building are welcome in this thread!
Disclamer i am a novice in both welding and basic electronics, use any material in this thread at your own risk and personal liability. Research everything you plan to utilize and read read read!!!

Now off to start collecting microwaves!

Try not to electrocute yourself.

You could always do the 2 12 volt batteries hooked up to jumper cable trick....

Do they have freecycle shops around you?

It's a company that pics up shit like appliances that work and they give them away to whoever wants them.

Fuck I wish, I'm just gonna post some flyers on the bulletin bord outside the grocery store. The cool thing is they can be fucked as the transformers don't really burn out.
