Re: Offset Column?
- Thanks Marc,
Yes I am hoping for neutral and I planned on using the copper packing mesh from Amphora. It looks very uniform and they say it has the correct ratio of voids to surface. I was wondering about channeling but didn't know it would be significant so you answerd my question.
