The Epoxylite I have is about 6 years old, and has 3 addresses on it.  One
in Irvine, CA, one in Westerville, OH, and one in Bradford, England.  
I looked in the local phone book, and lo and behold:  The Epoxylite Co. 
of Ohio  614 882-8511.

Depending on your 'trode construction, you might consider teflon coating.
You have to track down a local commercial shop that does this, and then you
have to figure out what type of teflon to use at what thickness.  Some
varieties can be leaky if thinly applied.  Also, don't get black -- it may
have carbon in it for the color, and can conduct.

Now, can anyone tell me where to buy Insul-X -- particularly red Insul-X?
The company used to be in Yonkers, NY, but as I recall, they didn't sell
direct (except perhaps in industrial vats).
