@Everyone:
The attached photos are the parts that have recently arrived for this project.  Now the 24”x24”x16” hinged enclosure is definitely NOT necessary for the demo cell build but I am planning ahead so I can upscale without having to relocate all of the electronics later on.

The cast nylon 6 will become the top outer tube supports.  The 12”x12”x0.030” 304 S.S. sheet will be cut into .75” strips by a sheer and will be formed into the inverted figure “7” brackets.  The 12”x12”x0.120” 304 S.S. sheet will become the negative tubes’ hub after being cut into a circular plate.

Regards,
mina

@Everyone:
The attached print is my interpretation of the inverted figure “7” brackets.  They are made of .75” wide strips of 304 S.S. that are 0.030” thick.  The print is only a side view depiction and may not be exact duplicates of the originals but I did the best I could with the information I had at the time...

Mina

@Everyone:
In an earlier post, I stated that the spacer doweling holes were 0.125”, however, that is NOT what Dynodon stated.  He said that they were < 0.125”.  This was a misunderstanding on my part and so I’m stating now that the exact size of the holes and doweling are unknown.

If I had to guess, a strong possibility would be 3/32” or 0.09375”.  Since I don’t like to guess, I’ll check for the next common size that is < 0.125” in my material catalog.  This may yield a more accurate result as I can not imagine Stan machining or lathing small plastic doweling that small.  I believe he would have used a standard and readily available size doweling.

you could put your motor and alternator inside that big metal case too, then section it off with acrylic for safety, thats what i'd do with it

@Donaldwfc:
I might just mount the motor in there if I have room left.  Besides the electronics going into the box, I first must mount a PLC to the backplate using din rail inside.  I want the ability to change my control parameters on-the-fly by simply editing a PLC program I’m writing for the WFC system.  I am going to fully automate the system so I won’t need a guy standing up facing backwards (like Stan had to do) making adjustments as I drive down the road.  I want to be able to run everything hands free without a second party always having to come along for the ride.

The PLC will be able to safely and more accurately automate the entire WFC.  Rather than having to make massive wiring changes, I can simply modify the PLC’s program to change control functions.

@Everybody:
I searched through my material catalog and could not find a smaller diameter plastic/teflon doweling than 0.125” so I will have to go with this size.  The virgin teflon seems ideal for this application as it is a very low friction material in comparison with alternative insulating plastics/materials.

This is the doweling/rod for the plate spacers at the top of each tube set.

If your looking for some smaller plastic for your seperators,try looking at weed eater string,that comes in small diameter sizes.

@Dynodon:
The weed eater string is easy to find and I'll give it a try.  An excellent suggestion! 
 
Thanks,

@Everyone:
I attached a photo of one of the motors I purchased a while back.  It’s a dual capacitor start 120VAC, 3450 RPM motor.
 
I’m using this motor for experimentation only and it will be replaced by a more efficient 1725 RPM motor when I’m finished trying out various RPM ranges first.
 
These are the known specifications concerning the alternator driven by the motor with pulleys and fan belt:
 
•   The motor is a 120VAC, 1725 RPM, capacitor start type.
•   The pulley ratio is 2:1 thus the alternator RPM is 3450.
•   The alternator is a Wye wound and external voltage regulator type.
 
What I don’t know is the make and model of the alternator Meyer used.  Does anyone know which one he used?
