It looks like they created a voltage coil with an iron core around it and so long as the proper voltage is applied, I guess it would work. Though the welds look very similar to little piles of chicken droppings, maybe it'll hold for what they're doin with it. 'Course then welding without a pair of gloves and a hood is pretty foolhearty since you can't actually watch the weld you're makin and it's all pretty much luck as to what you'll end up with that way.

I wonder how they change the output current for differing thicknesses of material ? Maybe they kink the incoming power to decrease the output voltage for thinner stuff, then have several people jump up and down on the power cable to pump up the output for thicker stuff smiling

Try opening the case on a mig welder, that's what you'll find.
Of course not that old or in such crap condition.

It's not a mig welder (Metal Inert Gas) it's just the transformer of an Arc Welder, or sometimes called a stick welder.
The dude has to be wearing gogles (can't tell beacuse his upper head is not in the picture) or holding a dark glass with his other hand so he's able to see wtf he's welding.

Hell I have done stick welding with a car battery and jumpercables. I am not suprised this works. Just suprised at the lack of bodily protection

I ground shorted my self at work the other day when It was over 130 degrees where I was working. I was soaked to the bone with sweat. I rather play Russian roulette than use that "welder" ESPECIALLY with out gloves...

oh, and that has got the be one of the biggest "riggin's" I've ever seen, AND It welds like crap, literally like bird droppings.
