Re: thoriated electrodes
Original poster: "BunnyKiller by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <bigfoo39-at-telocity-dot-com>
as far as the use of thoriated tungsten compared to "pure" tungsten ...
there is a slight difference in wear... the pure lasts longer.
but after an accident that wiped out the tungsten SRSG tips I had to do
an immediated repair job and went to brass 1/4 20 bolts instead.
there was an increase of spark length, a reduction of gap wear , but a
bit more erratic behaviour in the spark gap ...
just something to think about..............
