Make your OWN...!  We have used 1cm thick, 20x15 cm graphite blocks used
as brushes for electric motors, previously used in a Merck bottle on its
side, then in a plastic tray, now in a semi-customised array marketed by
an ex-MSc student* of ours.  Has been going for years; when the graphite
breaks up, buy more electrodes - cheap!!  See also
