Hi , have heard only great stuff and I feel the time as come to assemble my own ROP. I have seen all the details on Tom Hubbards site, but am slightly confused by the assembly. Would I be right in saying the ROP is basically a Copper Rod and a Zinc rod (of the certain types and spefications) connected by the latex to form a ring ?

I'd also like to know if any UK guys have managed to find the components anywhere in shops, i'm going to do a round-up of all the local hardware places this week, and I wonder if anyone has any advice , cheers.
 
You have the basic idea correct. Check the huge RoP thread but you want your zinc to be high grade and your copper to be food-grade.

I am also in the UK and would like to make another RoP so i'll see what we can work out tomorrow as I need to hit the sack for some sleep right now.

I had tried B and Q but no luck, though those places are huge so its possible i would have missed the bits i needed. Let us know how you get on Sundown :)
