Thank you. It's nice to get things in perspective when lots of information is heavily concentrated in one place.

So then for the formulas listed, I figured that (excuse the lack of rounding) the following would work well with your EC #5396 pot, around which I hope to eventually build an electric melter:

60.0875 lb. silica
19.2375 lb. soda ash
8.607 lb. hydrated lime type N
2.071 lb. borax 5 mole
4.9875 lb. potassium carbonate
95 g antimony oxide
123.5 g potassium nitrate

TOTAL: 95.47221 lb.

Is this correct? I figured it at 5% of the original formula.
