That is about the size I was using in the first cell, do NOT align the water leveling holes, this prevent current leak between the plates
I aligned my holes to pump the cell, but I think it would perform much better if I haven't aligned them
It's better if you don't do the same mistakes that I did  ;D
Good luck on the build m8

Thanks!
I learned from Kumaran some months ago about the waterlevel holes the same thing as you mentiond.
Did you say, you used a pump?
What was your gap between the plates? :D

I orderd 50 plates today to start with
Hope to get them tomorrow! ;)
I got plexible pvc sheet for making gaskets today.
See what it will bring.
I just wondering what kind of housing to use.
Maybe i ll go for pvc tube (grey type for plumming) again....back where it all started with!
My first wfc with tubes was in such a housing...
This tube should be horizontal in my new setup. I may need more the 1 to fit it all in. Should be a cheap solution.
Or maybe i ll go for the famous flexiglas fischbucket.....LOL

Hmmmmm

my gaskets was 1mm thick but compressed around 0.8 mm, I made mine from natural rubber sheets
I'm not shure I understand the build you are making but I can wait for more details  ;)

Nice, just make sure you make it where you can change it easily later ;)

steve

can't wait to see it.
And like Riddler said,
Don't make it to hard to get to.
You may want to play with the setup.
