Not much was happening so I decided to amp it up for a while. Next round I cut it back to .25A and 9V.
Progress as of 11 PM.
It seems the warnings about checking it often had to do with lightly rusted parts. I am going to let this run overnight at 1/3 amp.
I changed the water and am only getting 5.4V at 1/3 amp. I am thinking this maybe due to a higher level of washing soda in this batch. Need to start measuring.
Pictures of the heads.
