Best material so far is known as G-10 phenolic ( found primarily at
McMaster-Carr). Depending upon your electrode diameter, the thickness of
the disc can vary anywhere from 1/4" up to 1/2" ( the bigger/heavier the
electrode the thicker the disc). Machining G-10 is not what one would
call easy, good tungsten carbide drillbits and T.C. ( tungsten carbide
not Tesla Coil ;) ) cutting tools are pretty much required to cut the
stuff. And BTW it stinks when you cut it....
