Have you tried the tumbler yet? It looks like it might make a Faraday's cage.

Thank you all!
I had a chance today to set up the tank,

and, started running some batches of TeleCom pins...

First 6 pound batch took 2 hours... I had trouble with my power source; it finally gave up..., so I went to the old battery charger. It took 1 hour to de-plate the second 6 pound batch. Another 34 pounds to go! :mrgreen:
So far, so good! 8)

Thanks!

Phil

I'm de-plating my 4th, 6 pound batch of telecom pins, and my power source keeps shutting off more often... :?
so it just dawn on me that... my acid might be saturated! :shock:

What is the maximum grams of gold per gallon in the acid before the process starts to foul!?
If the expected yield is 1gm /pound x 24# that = 24gm; if 2gm per pound then 48gm...
would that foul 4 gallons of acid?

Thank you!
