    Fuse wire welder prototype

    If that's the case they're identical to the resistor legs I tested. I can confirm it works perfectly on them

    Fuse wire welder prototype

    Are they bare copper or tinned? I have tested with 1/8 and 1/4w resistor legs and 34, 30, 28 and 26awg tinned copper wire. I have some glass fuses on the way but I'm 99% sure it will work great on them.

    Fuse wire welder prototype

    The Nano welder is a separate project than the fuse wire attachment. I haven't pushed the V1.4 attachment to the limits yet but it should work with that battery. The main concern would be duty cycle. As far as the Nano spot welder goes, you should be able to plug pretty much any 2S-3S battery to...

    Fuse wire welder prototype

    Hi guys, I normally post on various Facebook groups but I was asked by several users to post on here. I have been prototyping a fuse wire welding attachment that I wanted to share. It's a concentric pin design, intended to make welding fuse wires to 18650 cells or nickel strip as easy as...

    Minimal mAh capacity before you throw away cells ?

    80% of new is a good qualifier. Judging cells by capacity really depends on how easy it is for you to get cells and whether it's worth it to you to use more of the lower capacity cells or hold out for better ones.
