I’ve been lurking in the shadows for 2 years scheming up my first build. It all started on a trip I took on my sailboat to the Bahamas. While on one of the islands I had snuck in to a resort to relax aka take a bath in there hot tub when a guy comes riding by on a boosted board. It was a like a light switch, I knew I had to have one. I bought a folding bike to get around the islands but it took up to much room in the boat. So I ordered a evolve GT and had my parents bring it over when they came to see me. While researching what board I was going to buy I came across this forum. Given where I was at I knew a diy would have to wait. Now 2 years later I’ve bought up all my parts.

I’ve bought up all my parts and I’m in the waiting stage for everything to come in.
I’m building my battery at the moment and I’ve run into a problem. I don’t like the way my spot welder is welding nickel to nickel. I’ve experimented with different setting and the only thing that’s worked is kind of a odd thing. I hammer the solder very thin and put it in between the peace’s of nickel and hit it with the spot welder 2 times. It melts the solder and spot welds at the same time. Only problem is I think it’s getting to hot. Any words of advise??
