I just purchased a resistance solder that was used in the jewerly business. The machine just uses a arm and a giant coil spring to vary the voltage (110) is it possible to step down the voltage (saftey) and get the same results?
And any good designs for a resistance solder handpiece outthere?

a 110V uninsulated machine like that is a death trap. DON'T use it. Resistance soldering is usually done at low voltage.
check your email. I've send you a PDF with instructions on how to build a safe one.
