Video 3 of a series showing how I disassemble Microwave Oven Transformers (MOTs). This video shows you: 1 – How to clean up the old core, 2 – How to create a bobbin to wind coils, and 3 – How to put it all together. You should be ready to make any MOT project after this.
Based on feedback, there may be a Pt.4 later, to include FAQs and things I missed or explained poorly.
Perhaps these videos will help you save money on tools or projects, or even make you a little bit of extra money off of the things you make with them. If you live in an underdeveloped country and are looking to start a business but can’t afford (or even have anywhere to buy) the tools to startup but have access to junk, this is for you. If you’re looking to buy nice tools later, having some trades experience with a cheap one can help you know what features you’ll want.
Upcoming Projects: Spot welder, stick (arc) welder, plasma cutter, variac, hydroxy torch, carbon arc torch, arc furnace, battery welder, car (or other) battery charger and more.
