Re: Onboard Welder

well the premire unit does have a lot of advantages, such as 115 supply and variable amperage, however I have an alternator I am going to use for this, I figure on setting it up to replace the one on the jeep, I'll run the jeep off the battery while I am welding, it won't last as long as the premire unit will, however if you could gat a big enough variable resistor you could vary the current.
I know how bad the cost is for a store bought unit, you could cut costs even more if you use jumper cables to connect to the welder (you do have those right? and the best hood to use would be made from leather not a hard one, they would just get beaten up wheeling.
