    Post Diodes

    Here are the numbers from the diodes that I got from ibewgypsie for those who are looking for some.

    I v R m9661-32 mexico 8850

    I ^ R m9661-32R mexico 8850

    This is the only identification on them. The "v" and the "^" represent the directional symbols.

    Hey, you been rummaging through my junk pile?

    HA..

    They all are different.. I think new they are about $225 each.. FOUR of them would break my bank at this moment..

    I still have a couple of welders.... Not taken apart yet..

    WE bought some used square wave welders for our shops.. I regret buying the hobart stickmate I got new.. Square wave machines will weld circles around it.

    Did ya get them things clean? I think I shipped them dirty... The junk man thought they were some kind of spark plugs.. I told him they did in fact make sparks..

    Somewhere between the local UPS office and George, UPS or Canadian customs made a few dollars. I paid shipping, AND, GA paid COD..

    Anyone else had problems sending to Canada with UPS?

    CCW..
    $225 was what I paid for some similar diodes & Scr bridge combo (x4) recently at a industrial supply. if you got any cheaper, let us all in on it. As to the where. Lots of other people want diodes, I am out here. The well done run dry.

    Every welder had a different brand and size diode in it. I think the one I shipped GW was single phased out. The others were 6 diodes on the bridge.

    If you can avoid do not send stuff to Canada via a courier service. It will have to be cleared by a customs broker with attendant expensive charges. The best is to send parcel post via US Postal Service.

    As for the diodes see here for $31.38US

    This is the lowdown on US to Canada shipping:

    UPS red label includes brokerage. Ground they charge a minimum of $35 plus taxes.

    Fedex charges $15.00 + taxes

    Trucking is cost plus, brokerage can cost over $250...

    Ship by the post office - when they do charge duty (half the time they let them through N/C) it is $5.35 fee plus the GST on the value o fthe goods (in Canadian Dollars).

    I always have stuff sent by USPS to Canada - excellent service!

    Sometimes it is hard to get places to ship P.S. They all want to use UPS or FEDEX. Especially when they come accorss the border....verry expensive.

    Yep, about $32-38 is list. I guess I got a fair deal at $20. How many do you want?

    Mine are 400amp @ 175v. The only problem (maybe) is that mine are all Cathode to case.

    I used to get SCR's for even less. About $15 for 600v/175a, 3v trigger.

    If you need more let me know and I will dig through the shed. I should even have heatsinks for them.

    At one time Princess auto had 1000A SCRs for less than $10 each. These had a heavy copper cable attached to the top main terminal and a 5/8" or 3/4" stud mount.

    Thrud..

    I found the reciept on this end.. $27 plus a box charge.. A little more than I anticipated. I shipped about ten items that day and didn't catch it. SO? UPS is crooked? I hope crooked by accident. George paid on his end too. Looks like everyone came out except George and me.

    I remember shipping USPS last time.. marked on there it was a gift. Does that make a difference? (I think it might have been a dead chip to a Large pink gorilla)

    I guess that stung enough to remember? Karate classes, them lessons on what to block left bruises.. HA..
