    now that sir is a fantastic idea... its been a while since I did this last!

    So; youtube...

    ok recommends american "Arm and Hammer" soda.... is there any british alternatives?

    as the gantry is in the middle (so the cartridges are also in the middle) with rust either side. Il have to do the cartridges aswell? if I have to replace these its no biggies though i guess?

    bog standard soda from tesco or where ever is what i use. for the long stuff use long rods for electrodes each side rather than short ones at the end as wel

    Electrolysis? Doesn't that need some high current power supplies and the right material for the anode and cathode? I'm not sure what cola has to do with it? Confused here!

    Cola? Soda crystals wally :-)

    A car charger and steel will do, just need to clean them off once in a while.

    OK, just a quick update

    so, last week I done some experimental electrolysis with small tanks to establish best results.

    I stopeed off at the farm on way home from work friday and removed a rail.

    Brilliant!!! What a good suggestion Swarfing, and well done for following it through Kingc. G.

    Nice one G glad it came out so well, just don't do it on the Ali parts :-)

    I'm reluctant to put a piece of sandpaper to anything these day, saves a sh*t load of hard work as well ;-)
