that utilizes a resister that can take up to 2000 to 2500 F and a step down transformer that I can use to plug this small kiln into my wall. I have
looked inside of radios and stuff and they usually look like a fifty square
pieces of sheet steel with A crap load of copper wire wound about it. I
mean is it possable to heat a steel plate to that temperature without melting the electric wire that connects all the parts? I see stoves with
iron that connects to resistors that can easially controll the temperature
of the iron but again I don't know where to find the supplies I need for
higher temperature electricity.

Also I was thinking about makeing a electric welder if anyone would care to shine some light on the subject here at the totally awesome DIY
electricity forum.
Ok....let us examine what he is posting here.....

"heat copper to 1984.32 F or maybe a little bit above
that?"

He has the temp down to the hundreth's of a degree....so when he says a 'little bit above', does he mean 192.33 deg?

"I have been reading up on electrical heaters and I want to make one
that utilizes a resister"

If he had been reading up, then he should have now figured out that the 'resistor' is actually nichrome wire coiled up. You can buy the stuff buy the spool...easy to get...

"step down transformer that I can use to plug this small kiln into my wall"

Don't think he did the power calculations....unless his wall has 220 at about 50A or more....and not sure why it needs to be a step down transformer....SCR control would work better.

" I have
looked inside of radios and stuff and they usually look like a fifty square
pieces of sheet steel with A crap load of copper wire wound about it"

Radios? Oh, wait....I bet he is talking about the transformer....and those 'square pieces' are part of the transformer core.

Ok......I have NO clue where he is going with it....nor does he have any clue......someone loan him a tin hat.....

Look at induction heating. Never played with it myself but it looks fun.

How else are you going to remove stumps on a farm.
