Electrolysis Pitfalls

Tue Sep 14, 2004 12:13 pm

This electrolysis thing is good, but it's hard to convince my wife that I'm working. Its kinda like watching the grass grow. At least with the grinder or sandblaster, you know someone's working hard. I'm starting to feel like a "girly-man". Maybe I can add some sound effects for a little more noise. I would appreciate any ideas..........Bill V.

Bill, considering it gives off oxygen and hydrogen, try setting a candle or something similiar just above it. The resulting flashes and booms as stuff goes flying should convine her you are doing something. :lol: :lol:

Please, don't anyone do this, it can cause serious injuries. I was only kidding Bill.

Yeah, I thought about that John, but it would scare the dog, so gotta try something else.

You might try a low pressure air hose to bubble some air through it. Just enough to make it sound like a mad scientist's lab. Then she'll really think you're up to something.

Maybe dry ice would add a little drama.

Compressed air and dry ice - I think we're on to something.........

How about adding a can of carbide to the mix. This would add the noxious smell you need and aid with John's combustion methods. The bubbling would be a good visual too :roll:

Explain to your wife that the dog always needs to be tied up during electrolysis for his own safety.

You could let her dip her legs in and voila, she wouldn't have to shave 'em any more. :D

I think playing a tape of "Rocky Top" continuously and loud would help a lot.

"Rocky-Top".....now why didn't I think of that. Carbide & legwax.......all good ideas.
