. You're looking at it backwards. He wants to run a current through a metal salt solution to produce ClO3

what exactly is a chlorate cell? If it has something to do with electrolysis than gold or carbon is probably your best bet. You can get a carbon rod from a cheap carbon-zinc battery (if it isn't alkaline, it's carbon zinc, carbon zinc is cheaper than alkalines). A source of gold is connectors.

OKOKOK Here's the real answer! If you only want to got to RadioShack than here's the parts:
This transformer: HERE
This 2 of these diodes: HERE
This Regulator: HERE
And a 1000-2000uf capacitor. If it needs to be super pure DC you need to add more capacitors around.

If you don't know how to put everything together than tell me because I'll make a schematic for you, but if I don't have to then why waste the time?
