Re: tungsten carbide magnetic?

I would say yes since I have already "tested" my set up with 30KVAC+ .5 amps ( approx 18KW) yes I must admit they do "errode a tad " but not to the point where I have to replace them every 10 hours of running... ( I must have over 100 hours on the present set )

I have tried stainless steel, brass, copper, monel, haspaloy( spelling?)... but the tungsten holds up the best...

Hi Scot (or is that Elmer Fudd),

No apology necessary.  All I needed to do was ask, right :o)).
Besides we
all do it.

So I conclude that my 1/8" tungsten rod will be fine when I switch to a
5KVA PIG that I will try to run at 8KVA.

My first asynchronous rotary gap used 1/8" tungsten rods with a 5 kva pig running at about 7 kva. It works but the rods do melt a bit on the ends.
