If you want to drive over here Josh, I have many barrels of the sodium silicate I am pretty sure I will not use ever. My life is considerable slower than it was. There are elements for your moly here as well which I could sell.

I get really hinky about the iron content of that particular silicate. Ron indicates that he melts in the mid 2300's which is way too hot for consideration in a wire melter. There's nothing wrong with it at all, it just doesn't address the cullet issues.
