* To the tune of Sisters of Mercy -This Corrosion
I have no idea where this EIA flange adapter came from, but it’s aluminum!
Every other piece of EIA flange hardware I’ve ever seen was either stainless steel, brass, tin or silver plated brass, maybe phosphor bronze…. Not aluminum.
This adapter was only in service a couple months carrying 1400 watts of power mated to a typical brass firing and it was already starting to look bad. No heating was observed, but it was only a question of time.
Sorry, you’re just going to have to learn to love those bad jokes. Get ready to scrub your flanges when the lights go out.
