Bear with me, novel mood, so bare with us:
In my possesion:
- 100% lack of spot welder and equal amount of patience
- Broken regular welder from around ww1 (seriously, bakelite, no components, directly to mains), with new in transit
- A microwave that I love as much as it loves it's transformer
I don't want to build a fragile pack and be stranded in the edges of nowhere. It don't need to be nuke proof but adequately reliable for a ice scooter starter battery.
I've had previous success on a pack I did for a power tool, super gluing nickel strips, after dremeling the surface of nickel and poles of battery. Fixation with neodiddlium magnets (first), then putting small amount of super glue on the edge of nickel, so it runs out along the side, and unavoidably some in under. Since super glue/cyanoacrylate is, unfortunately in this case, not conductive, I don't want it so much between strip and pole (those two words in close proximity for lulz). My brain cell worked this out = a spot weld have 2 microscopic guaranteed conductive points, the rest of the contact area is unknown - does it contact or is it air between? No one knows. But it apparently works good enough, even so good it is the preferred method. Then it should work maybe not similarly, but adequately, with super glue on edges. First I tried with epoxy but got messy and if you screw up you have to grind it down, inhaling epoxy dust is how you get banned at pearly gates for stupidity.
So, what do you think?
