All in good fun George .

But if the anodes were not clean the amps dropped off fast.
I found that after 3 pieces had been put though the tank it didn't seem to work any more until you cleaned the anodes.
The key to keeping it working fast is to clean the anodes, I was cleaning mine after every piece that I put in it. Found the fastest way was to use the bench grinder with a wire wheel on it, or the angle grinder with a wire wheel will do the same job.

We put the cage back in the tank and only put the hood in the tank this time and hung it upright from both ends. Turned everything back on and it is showing about 25 amps on the gauge. I think one thing we might need to do differently is to clean a bare spot on the part and then use an alligator clip to put the ground to it. I don't think we are getting a good enough contact since we just ran wire through a couple of openings to suspend the part. At the rate it is going though that hood will have to be in the big tank for a week and in all honesty if that is the case I would rather just sandblast it.

Yes everything is outside right now so maybe the temp does have an ill affect on it?

Going up in temperature has a diminishing return. The curve begins to level off at 25-30 degrees C & there is very little difference beyond 30.
Summary: conductivity in water (and thus supposedly electrolysis) should be best above 20 degrees C (or 70 F).

In the meantime I am going to decide what I want to do with the Case.
