I don't know about that but I read a story, with pictures and every thing
:), about a guy who used a lawn mower motor and alternator to make a small
DC welding rig. Might do a google search for something like that

They're very cool, but a welder is needed to build it. Catch 22! :-)

the lawnmower welder can be found at
Renewable energy and sustainable living
Donate $0 or more to Green Trust, and receive
a copy of Joshua Tickell's "From the Fryer to
the Fuel Tank", the premier documentary of
biodiesel and vegetable oil powered diesels.

Mother Earth some years back.....Think they were welding up a tower for
Jacobs at the time.

I have used home made, battery powered, arc welders for a fair few years.
On Yahoo, I have set up a site called:
There, you'll find a good deal of info on my 3 battery welder.
You'll see how I moved from this, to the 'Amptramp', a 1 tonne, diesel
arc welding system.
This project was built, using my battery powered system.
I hope this will be of assistance.
Best wishes, and showers of sparks too :) .
