Re: [TCML] High Voltage Stand-offs


At our local dollar store, they are selling winter time reflective driveway stakes, 1/4" diameter, 4 feet long, and made of yellow or orange epoxy fiberglass, for a buck each. You can cut one to appropriate lengths and epoxy them into an insulating mount (even wood would be OK for a base), and affix your electrodes to the other ends.

Probably also available at your local Home depot for 4 times the price.

Does anyone have leads on affordable high-voltage standoffs for safety
gaps? I see the ceramic ones but they are very expensive wherever I look,
even the small ones.

Could I possibly make my own using PVC tubing or would I be looking at
problems due to high temperatures? I would normally just try it and see but
I don't want to damage my terry filter =)
