    The only problem I can see with losing the certification is if your insurance requires that you have certified products in your home or shop. Other than that, since you're doing the wiring you can...

    Would you provide a link to that 99% ethanol on Amazon, please? I found isopropyl alcohol at high percentages but not ethanol. Pure ethanol would be fairly expensive, I expect.
