I have used heating elements form a hot water tank, and the current did
cause the chrome on the outside of the element to burn off, but I made sure
I didn't push my coil to the point the element burned open. It worked fine
for me, and the elements are not very expensive. In fact, most electric
water heaters which fail will usually have one of the two elements still in
working condition, and you can scroung these for free.
