I notice they use the Youtoob dabbing technique to weld. It sure is popular in the 3rd world.

Gee, I never knew that I really didn't need a proper welding machine, just a couple of car batteries, an old spark plug, some cardboard to stick a lens on and have at it.

I thought the hose clamp holding the wire on the battery terminal was advanced Jiggenomotry at its finest. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do

the phone camera welding shield was pure genius.

I suppose the stabbing technique is all you can do if you have a fixed power welder.


Also didnt know the ready welder was a thing, I always thought lads just used jump leads and a stick

Yea the phone camera shield is a good idea until the phone slides out and falls to the ground and the screen cracks, lol.

Unless you absolutely must weld something away from regular household power, it doesn't make too much sense to nickel-and-dime one's self to death.

Probably does not for you. Since half your machines are 400/3
