If you wish to use it, I suggest Everclear. I can give you specific amounts if you decide to try it.

See you this spring? I'm on the week before you this year.


I am scheduled June 10-15. Hope to see you again.

Thanks for the comment about the alcohol. I use it as a surfactant in making carbon tissue and was just wondering if it had any long term hardening effect. I have not noticed any, but thought I would ask.

Have you though any more about a carbon tissue coater? I just had a real messy session coating with the rod and it made me think of the project.
