How to Scavenge High-Voltage Components from Your Neighbor's Trashed Microwave. For this project, I decided to rip apart a microwave I found in my neighbor's garbage can to see what was inside.
With permission, of course! True story! The saying goes, "one man's trash is another man's treasure", and with all the parts I found in this abandoned appliance, I felt like I won the lottery! Want to see what's hidden inside your old microwave oven? I started by relocating the microwave to my workbench and plugging it in to test it out. After the light bulb blew up, I unplugged the system, cleaned the mess, and removed every screw I could find. The casing came off easily, revealing some dangerous high-voltage components. When every screw was removed, I had a whole workbench full of fun and useful components! How to Melt Metal with a Modified Microwave Oven Transformer.
In a previous project, I showed how to build an electrical Jacob's ladder using an old microwave oven transformer (MOT).
In this project, I modified the secondary coil on the MOT, which converts it from a high voltage/low current device into a low voltage/high current metal melter! You can see the simple modification in the pictures below. I've saved the primary coil and replaced the secondary with 1.5 turns of 2 AWG stranded copper wire. The first MOT in the video produces just over 500 amps, and the second one is capable of nearly 800 amps. Both are enough to turn this steel screw into a glowing stream of molten metal. How to Make an AC Arc Welder Using Parts from an Old Microwave, Part 1. In a previous article, I demonstrated an Arc Welder made using parts from old microwave ovens.
Here is part 1 of 2 on how that arc welding machine was made, and how you could make one too! This is the first of two parts on building it, focusing on the modification of the transformers. WARNING: Stick welding, and/or the modification of a Microwave Oven Transformer (M.O.T), can be very dangerous and presents risks of UV radiation, shock hazards, burns, fires, fumes and a multitude of other risks.
This project should not be attempted without a thorough understanding of electricity, adult supervision and adequate training. Misuse, or careless use, of tools or projects may result in serious injury and/or death. Make a Spot Welder for Cheap!! How to Turn a Microwave Oven Transformer into a High Amperage Metal Melter! In this project, you'll learn step by step how to modify a microwave oven transformer into a high-current device that can pump out 800 amps of electrical current, which is enough amperage to melt metal.
If you liked the Metal Melter you saw in my previous project, here's how you can make your own! Start by finding an old microwave for free. The bigger, the better. You can find them in various places, like on free classified ads, or in your neighbors garbage can, like where I found this one. The transformer (MOT) is the piece that you'll need, and it looks like this. CAUTION: Make sure you're familiar with the dangers of opening a microwave, because there are components inside that may still carry a charge and could hurt, or even kill you.

Skill Builder: How to Find the Center of Any Circle. If you need to drill a hole in the center of a circular material, you’ll have to find it first.
You could buy a fancy center-finding tool, or you can use simple measuring tools and these easy methods to mark the point. Carpenter Square Step 1: Place a carpenter square on the face of the material with the outside corner on the edge of the circle. Trace the outside edge of the square on the circle to draw two perpendicular lines across the circle. Step 2: Use the straightedge to draw a third line perpendicular to one of the others. TIP: Don’t have a carpenter square? Carpenter Square and Ruler Place a carpenter square on the face of the material with the outside corner on the edge of the circle.
Rotate the squares and repeat Step 1 to draw another line. Carpenter Square and Speed Square. An Introduction To Wood Species, Part 1: Properties & Terminology. This Wood Species series of entries comes to us from guest writer Rob Wilkey, an Atlanta-based woodworker and industrial designer whose expertise is in small home goods, furniture, and large installations.
In this continuation of the Material Matters: Wood series, we'll start talking about the specific properties of different wood species, and the terminology used to discuss those properties. Those of you who were paying attention during the previous MM:W entries will recognize some of the terms, but a little review never hurts. Over 100,000 different species of trees have been identified worldwide. Many are endangered, many are inaccessible, and many more aren't suitable for use as lumber. In fact, only a very small portion of these species is harvested and dried for use, but that 'small portion' still comprises over 500 species. Woods we see in everyday American life—pine, oak, and maple—make up a small and comparatively uninteresting group of species. Material Matters: Wood. The Birth Of A Tool. Part I. Axe Making (by John Neeman Tools) Combo Miter Saw Station Lumber Rack. This miter saw station does double duty as a lumber storage rack with room for long boards underneath and 4' x 8' sheet goods in the back.
I looked around for a long time online for plans for something like this and all I was able to come up with was a hand drawn sketch in an old Fine Woodworking magazine. I adapted the drawing a bit to create the following Step-by-Step Instructable, adding in easier to use see-through bins for cut-offs in the front instead of solid panels, and adapting the rail-style bed pictured in the drawing for stock to be a bit simpler and deeper so it could serve as a functional work surface as well.
