Pete, are you referring to this formula:

50 sand
20 1/4 soda ash
9 1/16 hydrated lime type N
5 1/4 Potassium carb
3 3/16th Borax 5 mole


I'd like to be clear on this because I'm taking notes and rubbing my hands together in planning for the future. Muahahah.

While we're at it ...

Is that in reference to this:

100 Sand
28 Soda Ash
14 Lime Hydrate
12 Potassium Carbonate
200 grams potassium nitrate
100 grams antimony oxide


And finally ...

Is that in reference to this:

63.25 silica
20.25 soda ash
9.06 Hydrated lime type N
2.18 Borax 5 mole
5.25 Potassium carb
100 grams antimony oxide
130 grams potassium nitrate


Just want to be sure. Thanks.
