i just realized something, i believe this is the first time, amongst the 1000s of words on the subject of CS that anyone has posted pixs of the actual components involved IMO
Yeah that's part of why I found it so hard to understand and why it took so long, and why myself and a couple others were asking you to take photos or make diagrams lol :smile: - and consequently why I made this thread!
PS if your CS maker is working,the coins should change colors or even have lil silver tails hanging from them in the morning
Ahh yep I remember reading about that -- it's handy to have such a visual indicator! :smile:

pheno, yep i,d have posted pixs if i was able, some missing molecules in my brain forbid it.
plus if i had read your whole posts i,d have seen you even mentioned folks turning blue from to much CS consumption. you have absorbed all the info concerning CS it seems, good.
lets see some fem seeds now,or in the not so distant future..what strain r you planning to fem first?
PS your welcome, GK
pss, i touch my ingots together to look for a miniscule spark arch to see if every thing has positive contact and is working. the spark, if there will be very very faint, kinda like rubbing a cat on the wall, the sparks are hard to see lol
Aestivus: ok we give up, tell us the punchline to your Borax joke :smile:
goldking, interesting tip about touching the silver together to test for a spark, but ... if i was going with the 9V battery setup that i diagramed in the STS vs CS thread then I'd give it a go, but the idea of a 240V kick up the ass sends a shiver down my spine :smile:
(even tho it shouldnt happen due to insulated wire etc, but im not a risk taker, nor a borax user)
hey ppl ....dont have an immediate plan for using the stuff at the moment but thanks to your thread i know i'll make one at some point and explore fem seeds for sure...sounds too easy.....good work to all that put some thought into this.HH . =]
So will the silver last a super super long time since its only sheding super super small bits? Maybe you could just buy one coin and cut it in half or melt it down with a blow torch and adaquate fuel to melt it and make rods with a ceramic mold. Or you could hit up jewlers and ask if they have any silver wire or know where to get some.
I'm thinking this would help in breeding super awsome females since you can use two females and not worry about what traits to look for in a male to get good female offspring.
Deft, you can use any form of silver as long as its 999 pure (just like the water has to be pure - distilled is the only option) ... coins have a good surface area, as does silver wire, and yes youre correct that the silver will last a very long time because we're only talking microscopic amounts - literally parts per million via electrolysis, so the silver purchase is an inexpensive once-off. The 1oz coins I bought are a bit overkill, I think 1/2oz would be perfect if you opt for using coins :smile: - just go to your local Mint.
(You dont want them to be too small tho or you increase the risk of the alligator clips touching the water, and you dont want that!)
