I only add the mgal after the AP, barium and dichromate is mixed and in a wet state. Wearing a respirator is a good idea when making the fuel and pressing the motors. .

Woooohooooo!  

Glad they are starting to work for ya Neighbor!

 

Yeah Col,
I have worm respirators in the past for many things including pyro but I don't worry too much about it anymore,  I hate them,  That's one of the reasons I bound that batch with NC to help capture the dichromate better so I don't breath it as much while pressing.

I like these videos a whole lot better than Neds. Just need more volume.


There are very few problems that cant be solved with explosives.
                             Explosives are a bang up job.
