Construction

When Jim sent these images to me I was impressed.  He uses commonly available materials for the internal structure of the batteries.

 The big pack.  

"FYI, the  90/9 volt batteries seem to come in at least 2 sizes.  I have a Zenith and RCA that are the same dimensions,  but also have a Eveready that is a little smaller.

Unfortunately many web sites and links have disappeared and went a way.  I have begun to remove many of the dead links.  Please forgive me if you find a few on my web site.  I will try to keep the fine work of these authors alive (even though the text is lost the art work is still shown).  If you don't mind please let me know.

Thanks, Paul.
