Gee. I wonder what Amp is doing selling the Cloks then? They are 
specifically sold for attaching stranded copper wire to ground rods 
and include a corrosion inhibitor.

Secondly, IMHO copper braid is more of a concern than stranded copper 
wire. Properly waterproofed at the ground rod, I think you'd have a 
fine ground; no solder to melt or burn out.

My desire was to share pricing on copper wire to inform TT'ers of the 
latest HUGE price increase in all copper products.

As for a "violation," well, there are many divergent opinions here on 
TT. Get two of us together and you have a conversation. Get three 
involved and it always seems to generate an argument......which I am 
NOT trying to provoke with my esteemed colleagues.
