Re: Build your own CD battery tab welder for about $100.00+-

Totally uncalled for. This thread is possibly the best internet source of information on this subject. Texaspyro (I am guessing that's who you were digging at) may not be going open with his design but he has given masses of information to this thread, and was no end of help when I PM'ed him. Prett...

So, basically, this thread turned into a "look at what I built, its the beeeest!".....instead of what it was intended to be......wonderful.

New guy here who was very interested in building my own tab welder but aside from part sourcing, matching and trial and error in finding what works and what doesn't and the actual build time..... I succumbed to the idea of finding something already built......in China. I know, I know but I di...
