From welder to power supply

This has been another on going project an old welder that I couldn’t get parts for. I decided to turn it into a 90 amp variable power supply. Still have a few things to finish, mounting fuses, crowbar circuit. I just need to get the nerve to hook it up to a radio! Ha!

Added the AC and DC fuse circuits today. just need to add the crowbar circuits and a power switch and a good smoke test!

    Hey, I like the slideshow. Maybe you can get Ed to flip the switch when you get all the mods done! I love the smell of capacitor smoke in the evening….
