WARNING: Burning galvanized metal may release toxic Zinc Oxide fumes.
This project is extremely dangerous and should not be attempted without
adult supervision and adequate training. Misuse, or careless use, of
tools or projects may result in severe electric shock, cardiac arrest,
serious injury, permanent damage to equipment and property, and/or
death. Use of this video content is at your own risk.
modifying the secondary coil on a MOT, the transformer is converted from
a high voltage/low current device into a low voltage/high current metal
melter. The first MOT in the video produces just over 500 amps, and
the second one is capable of nearly 800 amps.
Any metal that
can conduct such low voltage electricity acts as a resistor between the
electrode wires, and heats up due to the extreme electrical friction.
