    Im interested as to what kind of OB welder you have?
    Ive seen some which use a car alternator as a stick welder but pretty primitive.

    i guess mine is pretty primitive also. I just mounted another alternator next to my existing one, and then i used a NAPA power converter to give me some 110V outlets. anything more elaborate and it would be outside of my realm of expertise...obviously i have very little expertise. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif if i were to recommend one, i would go with ZENA. try zena home /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif pm me if you want pics of my set-up /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I saw one where the guy took a high amp alternator (230A) and removed the regulator so it ran about 20-30VAC at 200A.
