The sulphur we have is as chips but clumps together unbelievably in the mortar. From there, I’ll mix it into the rest of the boric acid and charge it. Any thoughts?
Thats an awful lot of sulfur. Stick to 1% and see what you get besides a potentially ruined crucible. You might consider covering the pot.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
