wrap
Looks like my new design will have neutrals in it. So now I need to figure out what to wrap the plates with.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Randy

RE: wrap
Here I come to save the day!!

I have explored the wide uses for wraps and I have found one that is very cheap and efficient. It's called heat shrink wrap TAPE. Don't forget the tape part, it's important!! It's just like heat shrink tubing, except for it comes in a HUGE roll for a cheap price. I found my 4"x150' (yes, feet) roll for $24 online. You can do a search on the forums for Dr. Shrink and you might find my post on where to ind it. If not, go online and look for it, but it shouldn't cost a lot of money. Yay for finding good deals and I hope this helped! Big Grin Big Grin

RE: wrap
You can also try this website I came across - http://www.cableorganizer.com . Heat shrink tube in up to 4" diameter, heat shrink material in tape form, heat shrink wrap tape, silicone rubber self-bonding wrap tape rated for up to 500 F, etc.

Howdy! Thanks for jumping on the forums, I hope you learn a bit here! Quick question before I answer yours though. What are those leads made from? It looks like maybe a skinny SS bolt that you just bent a bunch? It looks very interesting!

First of all, we usually call wraps "wrapping the cell." This means that we are taking the generator and putting some sort of sealant around the outside of it so current doesn't bleed through. In my case, I use heat shrink wrap. Think of it as doing heat shrink tubing to a really big wire. The blue stuff in the picture below is that heat shrink wrap tape I mentioned before:

RE: wrap
I have found something that turns out was very cheap for me (FREE). A local marine dealer had some scrap pieces of the material they use to wrap boats with during transportation. I used a hot air gun to shrink it around the plates and at this point I think it will work. And did I mention it was FREE. Oh ya, I did. It goes well with the FREE CPVC scrap piece of pipe a plumber had. Unforunately, I had to buy all the fittings.

Awesome, free is the best for us as long as it works well! Isn't that stuff just another form of a HUGE vinyl covering that people use for decals and full body jobs (advertising)? If it is, it's pretty thick and VERY strong, so great find! Hopefully it resists the heat that the gen creates and doesn't peel off easily (biggest problem with wraps).
