I'm thinking of adding a home made ballast coil to the transformer input but I'm now in wait and see mode before I try something else.
I sort of wish I'd made up a unit using supercapacitors but this unit has a nice case as well as a pretty decent timer and physical welding probes, something I could rejig later if I decide to make a supercapacitor welder.

I think I've heard that Perry Cardin name somewhere, I must check it out and see how much extra they charge for the name.

The weather station in the foreground is what I've had broadcasting to wunderground for a little while, my webcam now can be seen on that site, plus after many a headache when it was first used it now operates very reliably. for want of a better name I call it West Ingham, or as they categorise it iingham5.
The smoke/steam in the left background is from the Victoria Sugar Mill, one that we saw a show about on Discovery channel a few weeks ago.
