I dont think you need nickel plates.
Nickel is highly resistant to alkaline electrolyte corrosion.
Decent Nickel plating should work.

But we are nor talking nickel here; alloys can have very different properties to their constituents.

Copper nickel aluminium alloys are available.
I'm thinking that the Al will be eaten away by the KOH; leaving a Raney Nickel type surface?

Why would you want to use some expensive type of material,when stainless is so abundant and thats all you need.KISS!!!

Well, that reason is a simple one. As long as nobody has found a better way to fracture water, then the electrolysis methode, it is a challange to do electrolysis as efficient as possible.
Electrojolt and i, did tests with copper tubes and we seen a big improvement on efficiency.
Of course copper will be eaten by the electrolyte.

A nickel 200 or 201 should have a much better conductivity then SS.
So, if my wfc is doing around 90% Faraday on SS then it maybe doing over 100% on nickel.

Stans Brother also said that stans tubes wouldn't last forever, That they wouldn't pass electrons but for so long..

Anyone recall hearing that...

yea, he says on the radio show, and briefly in his patent, that the ss is a semiconductor that adds to the process, and will be slightly consumed

however, the metal is consumed based on the amount of current flow, extremely low current flow.... 1-2 mA is the kind of situation he is talking about when he says they will last 10000 years

if you use 10-20 amps for electrolysis, that is 10,000 times more electrons ... so you're cell will only last 1 year of steady use, which is fairly accurate if you look at some peoples cells that get all chewed up and corroded from high amp use. you just can't win with electrolysis, it's a self destructive process
