I've found these zinc plated aluminum rods .
I know 99.9% zinc rods a pefered, but will these work?
I can't find any other.
mcmaster.com doesn't accept any other payment other than creditcard...AND I HAVEN'T GOT ONE
No they won't give you the same effect really because the molecular differece does not have the same electrical potentials. Ever heard of a dry cell battery made of aluminum? The voltage would simply be too low. But Zinc on the other hand has been a common element for battery construction over the years. I can build you one of these complete with quick disconnect if you want. I use paypal and they will let you connect you draw from your bank account. Otherwise, we can work a payment through thte mail if you wish. Hit the link in my signature for more info or PM me. - Dash
