New weld head

New weld head
Weld head #2

Made a new weld head that can produce welds similar to what is used on the stock sticks.
The system allows a relatively wide range of adjustments for width between welds and cell central axis. I also rebuilt the capacitor bank with the caps in series parallel configuration which will yield more energy with a higher operating voltage range of 0-30V.
Will cut up some sticks and do a bunch of test welds.
Initial test look very promising.
