John...do you have the tank set up. I have a really sweet 50 gallon blue plastic barrel. With all new rebars (anodes) and connectors. Will be in Marion later today if you want to borrow it. Folks are having a big yard sale in August so let Annie know to be on the look out for updates.

I have a tank set up and the cleaning is intermittent. Have to reset every time the charger "smartens up."

So.... I’ve been thinking of building a tank. I’ve always sandblasted. I do a batch of parts and immediately mix up epoxy primer in my gun and coat them. No rusting takes place while bare. How to you keep parts from rusting after coming out of the tank? Assuming you have to clean with water to rinse off the solution? Would be a pain to mix up primer for each small batch from tank and coating with an oil based product would affect adherence of primers or top costs. Is there any other options? Thanks for everyone’s input

I have had great luck using graphite as electrodes, as they are self cleaning as they eventually wear away. Got tired of cleaning the steel plates. look for them on auction sites(e-bay) under EDM electrodes, or graphite. Personally I have been using old computer power supplies as they always have several voltage outputs. I gang the 12V output together, and use them. seems like I never have enough battery chargers, or they are always somewhere other than where i need them.
