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.
