The dummy load my group (Greater Cincinnati Builders Group) built used mineral oil, which is non-toxic. We tested the DL with a 200W signal for 5 minutes without failure of any components, although the mineral oil could probably do French fries. A construction article on the DL has been accepted by QST, but no projection on the date of publication yet. This shows the top of the DL. The cost is under $20.

I had bought 10 lot of dummy loads made at florida i suppose.
 I am planning to use a heatsink mount and housed in a can.
 Later i can even fill that can with transformer  insulating oil, .

I already have the parts to build one of K4EAA / W8TEE’s dummy load and power-to-voltage converters, but this is tempting as an even lower-cost option.  What do you all think?  Grease and heat sink?  Oil bath?
