Excuse me, what are "the now defunct economical toroids" you refer to??
Also, I noticed at Lowe's the other day that they have two different types
of aluminum "duct tape." One is the traditional type I'm familiar with that
is fairly thick aluminum, much thicker than aluminum foil, and the other is
something new to me, which is much, much thinner and similar to reflective
Mylar. I'm wondering if this thin tape is enough of a conductor to be of
use. It looks like it will be a lot easier to apply without wrinkles.
I read where someone used old newspaper and diluted white glue as paper
mache to smooth out their dryer duct toroid before applying tape. Has
anyone had any experience trying this or something similar? Is there any
real advantage, other than looks, to creating a really smooth toroid? I
realize that bumps and such create jumping off points for streamers. I mean
other than this one obvious difference. Is the difference in performance
worth all the trouble involved? Other than the ugly joint, I actually like
the appearance of a regular dryer duct toroid.
