    Default besides a rectifier, what do i need for electroforming?

    i bought a rectifier i found recommended on here and now i'm trying to figure out what else i need. I'm literally on 1x cell phone internet so trying to research is a bitch...

    is it best to just spend $300 on a 4.5 gallon (thats the size i want) kit from caswell? is it a rip off?

    Caswell is probably your best source. They are also a wealth on information if you give them a call and pick their brains for a while. It is a pretty simple set up and you can piece is together yourself off ebay and amazon for about half of the cost. I must say though, I just recently bought a Caswell power supply and it works much better than the cheaper Mastek ones I had bought off the bay.
