Default Re: DIY Welder

Just ease anyones concern about my ignorance of electrical safety...My first welder was housed back in the microwave "case" and the case was grounded to the ground wire,(that is why that third prong is on the plug right?) just in case of stray currents and what not. When I test my death traps I use an isolated circuit and observe all safety precautions. I may have crazy ideas, but safety first and I would not recommend playing with line voltage without a proper respect for electricity and a understanding of the safety and fundamentals of electricity

Just wanted to clear up any misunderstanding like I was an idiot trying to get myself electrocuted. I may be an idiot, but I am planning on avoiding the electrocution part.
