> Mark: With all due respect, if the mica ring is necessary to center the firing end of the electrode, then why do other manufacturers do without it? I use the Eurocom models without it and have never had a processing problem or arcing problem. I center the electrode manually only when it is really tweaked in the glass jacket, usually the result of shipping or packaging. But that is so rare I can't remember the last time it had to be done.
As for shaking the mercury past the ring, we're not talking rocket science here. I think I know how to shake down the mercury in a tube. But when I'm holding a large or cumbersome tube that can break under it's own weight, it's easier without the ring.

We buy our electrodes through Daco because they give us good service and price and we have had a business relationship with them for more than 10 years. In other words, pretty much the same reasons we would do business with SVP.
