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..............
