up ko lang. Is anybody using the Powerweld or Increweld? Or does anybody really believe in this "another Filipino invention"?
Hi experts! tanong ko lang, I was on the hunt for a cheap welding machine since I need to repair some of my dog kennels and I stumbled upon this, a machine called the Powerweld, I am not an expert on electrical circuits but this thing looks scary but on the other hand it is "Gawang Pinoy". I would like to purchase this product if its safe to use and I know some people here can share their thoughts on this product.kindly check this outyoutube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=gjPpQKkvjQU&NR=1
Ok, Trippler, the safe welding machine is simply a transformer. The secondary has to be high current, thus the heavy wire, sometimes flat aluminum wire like what I have. The voltage there is low(I didn't check the V). The safe ones has separated primary and secondary. It is not practical to have an autotransformer since the thickness of the primary and secondary wires are quite different. The one invented by a Pinoy is just a primary winding, thus, just a ballast to reduce the V at a certain typical current draw. And to tap the 110 line, earth ground is used. The chance of electrocution is high. As to your question, they could be the same, those minis colored yellow ang case. run a sontnuity test with your tester. There should be no contact between the primary and the secondary windings.BK
... Paano yun nakapasa sa safety at mai-market? Naka received pa ata ng award ang imbention na to.
Sir bk alam nyo po ba ang voltage output ng secondary?
