    Magnolium... Funny, the cheapest and most common family (6000 series) of aluminum alloys are aluminum and magnesium. Sounds cool, though.

    At least he has chosen correct forum.
    Magnesium had been important for exposure in old days flash photography.

    I met a guy a few years back who had actually made his own flash powder and used it.

    Flash powder is one or the most dangerous substances ever sold to the layman. Making it is even more dangerous!

    Yes, but he said he had no intention of repeating the experience.

    I really enjoy reading Magnesium.com. I look forward to accessing the
    monthly newsletter and I always find valuable information and resources
    in
    the newsletter, forum, marketplace and the daily news.

    I still belive that this forum is about SILVER, or not?

    The standard of spelling for spammers gets worse and worse. I don't know, don't they teach kids anything at school these days? When I was at school they used to hang us by the toes if we spelt a word worng... oh bugger... Arrrrgggggggggg!


    Sorry... flashback...


    Actually, can we have a Spelling Monitor for thread titles? I don't mind the spelling in the posts, but bad spelling and poor grammar in the thread titles leaps out at me...

    Cheers, Bob.
    Now Bob, is this Spelling Monitor going to be for Queen's English or the 'other'

    Ever since I switched from magnesium to copper embossing dies I've been short of flash powder.

    If I do the "spelling nazi job", that metal you know will only be spelled "Aluminium". "Aluminum" will be replaced by "Beer Can Metal".
