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! :-)

Jacobs at the time.

 Howdy Bob,

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   :)  .
