Hi Guy's
Have just finished building a press, using a 6000Kg Bottle Jack from Supercheap Auto, the Press is one discussed in great detail on Dan Williams Website.

All up cost was around $200.00 the most expensive part was the 20MM Clear Polycarbonate Blast Screen..
All the Steel was from a scrap yard and everything else from Bunnings...
The threaded rods are 24 MM. Springs are Trampoline springs..

Finished press below..

I Think I have a Problem..

25 March 2006 - 08:42 AM

Hi Guy's, I think I have a serious problem and wonder if anyone out there has any suggestions for a possible remedy! :(

My problem is, I find myself sitting restlessly in my lounge room bored with T.V. C.D. DVD. P.C. A.M. F.M. Ham Radio when the sudden overwhelming urge comes over me to go into the shed and ignite a small pile of BP or Flash or anything I have been experimenting with just so I can see the Flash & Smell the smoke,
I also find myself burning lengths of Black-Match for no apparent reason.. :unsure:
Another problem is my Lawn looks like dozens of U.F.O's have landed at different times as its covered with little round burn marks, and I think Jim the Mowing man thinks there's definitely something up!!
Even when I'm driving around I find myself making a mental note of where all the Willow Trees are. :unsure:

Has anyone else out there noticed this strange behaviour? Should I seek Psychiatric help?
It is becoming quite an obsession of late any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.... :wacko:

...Now where's my matches..

KnO3 Milling Question

09 March 2006 - 10:34 AM

Hi All,
Today while Ball-Milling a small amount of KnO3 (aprox 500G) after about 2 hours it started to give off Slight Fumes Of Ammonia..!

The Ball mill was clean beforehand, and Was using Lead/Antimony balls.

Local Air Temperature was about 24Deg C & ambient humidity around 20%
Has anyone else come accross this & anyone know why..??

Many thanks

Out of curiosity, how safe is it considered
to Store a few Gram's of KnO3/Mg Flash? (I'm talking uncoated Mg here..)
Thank's in anticipation.
