  4. super nice project !!! If I may ask, what size jaws did you end up with?.....(not that it matters) life is good Dave
  5. Sweet...just keep in mind electrolysis is a pretty much line of sight action. And, surface area of your sacrificial electrodes to part determines duration and how often the sacrificial will need cleaned. Life is Good Dave
  6. colafran ......Do they have 55gal. drums in California ? Just sayin' Life is Good Dave
  7. I like the looks of the all thread idea. But I think I would just bend the stump end into a U shape, sharpen the end, and drive it into the stump to hold. You wouldn't need to tighten both ends anyway. Plus you loose the shin grabbers. Life is Good Dave
  8. Did I mis the length of the legs somewhere? Or is there a preference? Thanks Dave
  9. It looks like there may be a "Road Trip" in my future......ha Life is Good Dave

  13. I have always used washing soda.......and if ya use stainless for the sacrificial electrodes, you don't have to change them so often... Life is Good Dave
  14. Quad-State...been there,done that, got the T-shirt....If memory serves, there was even a pic of IFI members taken. Seems like I was in that pic with some guy wearing a "kilt"....but it's been a while and the ole memory fails me a bit. I even ran across a guy named Ben Carlson, that tried to help me learn to sharpen plow shears. I make it a day trip and wished I had more time each year....... Life is Good Dave
  15. You are not getting current through each individual piece of the chain. Dave
