I cant wait to see how these welds turn out. Ive been interested in a trail welder for sometime but have been trying to stay clear of the 2 battery method for fear of them blowing up. I used to work for a interstate battery branch and it was never fun to load test a battery for fear of it blowing up in your face.
Word of advice, make sure the batterys are either closed cell like the optimas or have a way to replace water. If you try loading a battery without water, its much more likely to blow up. Just dont buy those seals battery that dont have caps for openning if you need to check and replace water... I would also not use the batterys for over a few minutes at a time. Between uses let them cool off and this way the cells will also have time to recharge from the acid.
