they are almost exactly an 1/8" apart. its not that I want to use more current, its that with that plate setup it was only creating a very little amount of HHO at the given draw, and I could not create more, and for a given design, all else equal, amps=energy expended on process, so it would not be comparable to your amps, but changes in amps in my system do allow the user to get a feel for whats going on. when I try plates again I will probably try a cell with more powered plates.

I'm using (looks close to 14 Gauge diameter) 1/16" 316 SS 7 strand cable, its stiff, likes to be in a 3.5" or larger diameter circle. the design I'm using has 12 ft + and - for a total of 24 ft, it is coiled (helix?) around a plastic frame I made like two springs, about 1/4" apart, as this was as close as I could notch the plastic to keep the spacing, the wire gets very hot at even 3 amps above the water line. hot enough to sear flesh. I'm thinking I can maybe run two of these cell to lower the voltage, which should help with heat if I understand it right. it definitely makes more bigger bubbles than the plates, but a 4"x7-8" coil is a pretty big package with alot of surface area.
