Thank you for your reply, both the primary and secondary will be removed to give me just a core, that will then have 12 or 10 turns to smooth out the amperage, I then wanted to tap that to adjust the smoothness of the DC signal.Are you talking about tapping the factory made primary or the homemade secondary? The former would be very difficult to impossible. The latter can be done quite easily . The MOT welder I made only had 6-1/2 turns. How many turns do you have in the secondary?
Are you talking about current pulsing as is done in MIG? I pulsed mine using a SST and one shot timer.
Going to be using awg 2 wire around 250-300 anp so a crimp fitting might be a little difficult. Yes thinking solder a shrink tubing over. I think do the windings first as that may be the hard part. then hack into the side.I don't see why you cannot tap a winding that you are making. With magnet wire, I would just solder to it. With heavy gauge stranded wire, I would probably use a crimp fitting or a T-junction (e.g., effectively two windings). I have not done that, so that latter advice is not based on experience.
I know i shouldnt say this, and it would be down to my own doings, but will the choke get hot enough to melt hot glue,, i'm thinking of a way to isolate them now?@#8
Yes, something like that is what I would do. When I wrote "crimp", I included screw tightened terminals in that class. The split bolt design you show has the advantage that the main wire is not interrupted.
