What technique have you used?

I don't happen to own an air mill.

You can ball mill it as well.

Wasn't sure about the ball mill. That I have, a baby blender I don't.

 

Thanks,

I hear the ball mill only works if it is really cold.

Yeah, it can be sticky stuff when it's milled. Seems cold helps or adding some of the perc. Not the full mix, obviously, but something like 10% of the perc.

You could also try wet mixing where you dissolve the K Benz in hot water and then mix in the Perc and catalyst. Once that thickens up you granulate. Takes longer to dry but it works and avoids milling altogether.
