Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

Those are small for the price. And ship from China. The ones I bought, see post #13 this thread, are currently OS, but the same seller had others similarly well priced.

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

Folks just need to be aware that many times a youtube video is less about a realistic presentation on the subject matter and more about look-at-me-I-can-make-a-video. Not saying that setup won't work...

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

I have to say I agree with some of the comments on the video. It doesn't take all this elaboration to adequately clean iron via electrolysis. The graphite plate I now use is the most sophisticated...

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

I haven't had occasion to need to cut mine. I can only recommend you do as I did and search youtube for some cutting methods.

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

Those are the ones I bought. The seller has several other sizes and thicknesses. Seems to be priced roughly by the square foot.

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

Rusty, there are some things that don't seem to want to move for lye or electro. The best that can be done with them, if vinegar won't help, is to minimize them by whatever safe means you can, and...

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

I bought the size I needed, so had no cause to want to cut. It apparently can be cut with a carbide saw, and by other means, depending on thickness.

Graphite is carbon, so if anything was...
