Now you really don't want to hear all the cussing I go through putting it together, lol, do you?
On the other note:
My stainless steel forks were leaching iron a lot (for electrical conduction one needs as hard of material as possible. Even Implant grade metals have soft materials in them which will leach out, stick with pure hard metals like titanium rods). So I ordered 98.9% titanium 1/8" rod/wire, works like a charm little oxidation on the rod surface, but nothing leaching in to cotton cloth wraps.
I got mine from McMaster.com online, part number 89145K313 (3 foot long 1/8" dia. 98.9% titanium rod - cost $16.22 - used by electroplating companies for its durability and non-reactive property in highly acid environments)
