copper slug


where can i find copper slug to put in my power cond?
thenis
old pennies?
Bare wire..
plumbing fittings, heavy guage ground wire, old weather vanes, copper nails, old standing seam copper roof panels, old copper rain gutters, etc. Check some salvage yards in your area. I assume you want small granular peices for ease of compaction? There is the problem, how do you grind the stuff up?
Ebay, look under oxygen free copper rods. You will find assorted widths, buy a rod and cut as many as you need for pennies a slug.
Yeah, forgot copper grounding rods. From the local hardware store. Thick copper rods.. perfect when cut up
Could be wrong, but I think copper grounding rods are not solid copper, but rather copper plated steel rods.
Mr C- You are right and wrong. The cost of copper is pretty high, compared to most other metals(scrap is fluctuating between $2 & $3 a pound, lately). Thus, grounding/earth rods are available in solid and plated versions: (http://www.krispettlonlightningprotection.com/catalog/grounding.php)
My apologies, in advance, for my cluelessness. Would you please tell me what are you planning to do with a copper "slug" and your power cord? Thanks, Happy Listening
Actually aren't most power conditioners loaded with lead?
Rodman99999, There are also galvanized grounding rods.
What for? to replace a fuse?
#2 or #3 should fit....check an AWG Wire chart.
For metric fuses? Again, check the chart.

Even scrap is getting expensive. Last year i replaced a faucted and got 11$ at a scrap yard for the one I took out.....Solid brass, Chrome plated.
Magfan,

#2 or #3 is strand wire. Cut short the strand will just fall apart.

How about a short piece of copper pipe.
3/8"
1/2"

Correct on the ground rod. Copper clad steel.

Solid round copper rod
.
If all you intend to do, is eliminate a fuse: solder a large gauge piece of wire across the fuse holder's terminals. Replacing a fuse, with a piece of copper, just provides two more contact points, for corrosion to form.
I must say I'm quite alarmed how non-chalantly this discussion has turned to materials for bypassing fuses . . . I'm thinking perhaps this may be a Bad Move from a safety standpoint.

Fuse in the power cord? What is the problem?

Then I reread the OP's post.....

Not a power cord..... A power conditioner....

My thoughts exactly.
