Re: Grounding wire options for cable internet line?

I don't have any cables that are not connected to equipment, so that shouldn't be an issue.

It's a tight fit to get 4 valves in the valve box. So they are pretty close together.

Re: Electrolysis tank power supply options?

Everyone has crazy inventive heating ideas, what about crazy inventive COOLING ideas?

Just curious if anyone has any crazy inventive passive cooling ideas other than lots of insulation and efficient AC systems.

Earth tubes, Venturi vents, or stuff I haven't thought about?

Re: HF 20 ton press failure

Harbor freight is a great alternative for renting tools. I love that place.

You get 3 uses before they break though. Keep that in mind.
