My digital microscope for anyone interested... it is older and not that many megapixels, but works for me... image displayed on screen and saved to SD card.

I finally found an old microwave at the local dump and was able to strip out the transformer... and a few other miscellaneous bits. Just need the solenoid and will be ready to start assembling my axle machine. Since it functions very much like a pen battery tab welder, I am going to see if I can make a dual purpose setup... would love to be able to weld frames, roll cages and such.

I used a similar control board as this one to make a spot welder. I don't recall where I purchased mine from though.
