New SBB Dry Cell (not MBB)
So, after tweaking my SBB Dry Cell I was unable to achieve anything more than 4.31 MMW. Now, I know there are a few factors in which adversely effect the efficiency of this generator (i.e., unnecessary holes) but I think in order to "do it right", I need to start fresh.

But, before I start drilling holes, I would like some input into hole placement. Specifically, where you would put them on your plates and why? What is your reasoning or theory behind the location(s)?

Thanks.

RE: New MBB Dry Cell
What size plates is your next design? I ask because on my large gen. I had to put feed holes in it twice and change the size of the holes.

RE: New MBB Dry Cell
First I need to make a correction to the title of this new generator. It will be a SBB dry cell and not a MBB dry cell. The MBB stands for medium brick build where as SBB stands for Small Brick Build. After looking over my plates last night, I decided it's still going to be small - 6 x 5. Minus the 1/4" gasket all around and a single 1/4" diameter hole, this will give me approx. 25 sq. in. per side.

I want to try the single hole approach because of a video I saw on You Tube. A gentleman had great success with this approach over (2) or more holes. I believe his dry cell is called the Amoeba Cell? Besides, if this doesn't work out for me, I can easily make the hole larger or add more holes. It's much easier to subtract later than try and add material...

In the plate size you want to use 1/4" should work. I have a 6"x6" with only one inlet hole and one outlet hole. The holes on it are lined all lined up.
