Homemade Electro Toys For Tough Economic TimesHi,
I'm a fan of home made electrodes with my TENS. The commercial toys are so over priced I got innovative. Copper de-soldering braid from Radio Shack sewn into a leather snap style **** ring is my favorite 'trode.
The hardware store has chrome plated steel rings in various sizes. Just have to tape over where the wire attaches to avoid a hot spot, owch. The cabnet hardware isle is a treasure trove of shapes and sizes. A ball drawer pull in stainless steel attached to a non conductive ba
Another favorite is a butter knife handle attached to a hard rubber ba
My favorite hook up is the butter knife handle butt plug with both positive leads connected together. One negative lead is hooked to the electrified **** ring and the other to a solid copper ring worn just below the head. The current flows - to + so the head current flows down the shaft and joins the **** ring current on its way to the buttrode. H.F.O's for days!
There are pictures of the toys in the home made toy folder tried some "in use" pix but they come out too blurry cant stay still enough I guess. Hope to get a more advanced power box like an Erostech 312 one of these days but the TENS will have to do for a while, need a new banjo more.
