don't they know that's difficult at best and even more so without an inert atmosphere



difficult?...puzzy

Ehh, today's groups were not as bad as I earlier imagined. I did say no way to trying to alloy any Li or Ti, too problematic, but I went along with any other proposed compositions.

They had to go on my faith on temps after the AL Cu were melted and I got above 900c, that any Fe, Cr, Mn adds then melted in charge, as I was not going to burn through thermocouples to prove it. I'm pretty good at just by looking at the charge light intensity and wavelength what's the temperature. Oxide formation with Mg, not bad at all. Zn is a always a bit tricky, it's all temp control, but I kept the oxides pretty low with no discernible vaporation. I'll know tomorrow morning if that's truly the case assuming no one claims they got zinc oxide poisoning today. :lol: That's yellow eyes, flue like symptoms, and yellow skin if it's bad enough. Takes 3-14 days to clear up if you get it.

More groups for the next 2-3 weeks. It's fun really. I like getting the kids involved in this kinda stuff. Good learning experience for them.

You could do all that I suppose. Personally I just put the metals between my pecs and flex, but that's just me.

You could do all that I suppose. Personally I just put the metals between my glutes and clench, but that's just me.

FTFY
You're welcome.

People who witch and moan when I ask them to make me an exotic alloy and they're too lazy to do it.

Awe, me being lazy?

All they have to do is look at a Periodic Chart, maybe a phase diagram or two, and at least wonder if there's might be some challenges. Like zinc vaporizing at 906C while chrome doesn't melt till 1906C.

You're right.

Tomorrow a group proposes some open air work with methane, ammonia, and some platinum. Let's do it!

You in? :lol:

I prefer open air work with platinum and hydrogen. Snap crackle pop!

Or platinum residue on a kimwipe in the trash can with another kimwipe with acetone. Good times.
