Well I found all the metal I

Well I found all the metal I need thanks to flatland. Now the problem is I need to get a device that measures amprage. I don't want to screw up my car so I have to doing a certain amprage to keep my electrical stuff safe.

So far I spent $60 and I have to spend about another $30 on just metal. Then have to buy a amprage device. I think by the time I finish it would of been cheaper to buy a beater and be done with it.

Flatland obviously knows more about this than I do, and I don't have any money to blow so I'm going to wait for you guys.

I have no idea what kind of meter to buy, there are so many kinds. I know I need the one that measures amps.

I think they are like $10-20. Any recommendations?
I want to get this done already.

Any old cheap thing should

Any old cheap thing should do. I generally borrow one when I need to measure something, so I've never had to buy anything, but just get something cheap and if it doen't work, return it. You are getting rather high in the prices, I wonder how these people sell kits on ebay for like 20 bucks or that custom made assembled one for 100 buck, hope it works though!!

I once found an ammeter

I once found an ammeter guage on Ebay. It seems like it was around $10-$15. I had tried all of the local places and could only find voltmeters.

Well I'm getting high in the prices because I have almost enough materials to build 2 systems.

I have no doubt that with only water and electrodes and electricity the metal won't corrode. But the crap like draino which makes the reaction better might kill the metal. We will see.

actually yeah, can you

actually yeah, can you measure the amprage between the distances of the 2 electrodes????

Use 12 gauge wire. And ammeter.

Try these 4 distances. .25", .50", 1", and 2"

That would help me a lot since I am low on money.

If you have any questions, ask.

You would connect the

You would connect the ammeter in one of the leads. What I do is hook it up and make sure the needle swings the right way. If it doesn't, I switch the leads around. It kind of works like a water pressue or, since this is an automotive forum, a fuel pressure gauge.
