moly furnaces don't take up any extra space and the SCR is not big either. My transformer is outside.

Wire is way cheaper up front, but not in the long run. I can replace an element hot if I have to, try that at home!

Also, I won't have to replace elements often at all. I do tighten things though.

If you are going wire, pay attention to Thumb. He really has this worked out.

I would agree that wire is more approachable than moly but unless you can limit the current, you are in for some long evenings. Use the SCR.

Remember I run both types electric and Gas. I like both and they are very different.
