Pyrotechnics ad Pyromania

  1. Oct 25, 2011 #1
    Hi. Is there anyone else like me? I like fire and a lot of things fire-related. Does anyone know an easy way to get iron oxide in large quantites? The nails I hae are galvanized, and I don't have any acidic solution with a pH of about 4 or lower. It takes foerever... For any people that want to know, I am trying to make thermite paste. Just a thought: Thermite burns through wood quicker than termites eat through wood. :biggrin:

    That qualifies as a dangerous activity, we don't discuss pyrotechnics here.
