Re: Diode Rectifier stacks

Ted: Many of us have used the 1N4007 in that way with good results. The
higher current diodes work better, If you use diodes from the same lot or
batch they will be fairly well matched and should cause no problems. If one
or two fail and you have extra in the string repair is quick . Just bipass
