      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.

      Thank You,
      Rhinodust

I am thinking temp control may be improved with a 45 deg offset about 18" long. Looking for opinions from all you experts.
