So I have a couple of questions hoping you guys can straighten me out on this. Went to town today to pick up ALL my supplies. Too much indecision of which products to purchase and after mistakenly buying the wrong solvent the other day, decided to pull the plug and do some more research.
Came back with a strainer and a cheeseburger haha
The other day I did find some 100 percent pure lye crystals though. Hoping this will work eh?
Since I just returned my coleman camp fuel due to others saying not to use it for it's naphtha because of the blended nature. There is green dye and rust inhibitors in it. I was hoping someone could confirm that this other brand I found should be okay before I buy it. I have a link to the MSDS below and as far as I can tell it seems okay but I am unsure
Recochem Camping Fuel, sorry hard to find an image for it they are all copyright
From the link below
Under composition/information on ingredients in section 3. is as follows
Naphtha (petroleum), hydrotreated light, % composition is 100
This is the exact composition but it is over my head
The only other stuff I can find locally seems to be ronsonal lighter fluid. But it appears to be more expensive
The second question is what makes a good container for the acid warming portion. I have seen some tecks suggest using a crock pot. Does this process damage your cook ware at all? should a guy go out and purchase a dedicated stainless steel pot for this purpose?
I think going with mason jars for swirling the solutions around, or maybe a recycled glass apple juice jug? It looks like I have to find a glass turkey baster as well. And probably a glass casserole dish for evaporation?
Oh and a funnel..
This next trip for supplies should be a little better haha
