tig Fi Freq Transformer (arc start)

For those who are building a Hi Freq unit for their Tig welder you can make a
transformer for the coupling of the HV. Using copper tubing with spark plug wire inside about 15 Feet wind it around a pvc pipe about 2-1/2" to 3" dia.
Hook the welding wire to the copper tube and the HV to the spark plug wire and you have a transformer.

Have fun
