pedantic ? Oh dear . Not pedantic .at all .The rest of it is soldered and hasn't fallen apart. I think you are being a little pedantic over a point being made that the original shield is not removable?
Although the heat shield is soldered to the main body a couple layers of the silicone sheet layer externally may still offer the handing needed with out gloves ?The point I was making was that the heat shield is fixed and not removable
Try some silica - and maybe a pinch of sugar?Well that was a failure. I bought a manual pill press off ebay ... the theory is that you put fomrer on the nase, place the powder in to the former, put the 'presser' on top and belt it a few times with a soft faced hammer. You then take the former off the base and use the presser to push out the formed tablet.
I tried it with plain old boat cleaning OA .. it actually does make a nice tablet ... BUT ... as soon as you try to pick it up the tablet breaks up.
1Pc Milk Slicer. Mix milk powder and diluted sugar water with the ratio of 8:1. Than put them in the mold to press. Material: Stainless Steel. Due to the light and screen setting difference, the item's color may be slightly different from the pictures.www.ebay.co.uk
So .. it needs a binder of some sort to hold it together - you only need a small amount (less than 3 %) for an appropriate binder to work ... I'm thinking Glycerin poweder.. it does not vapoourise until around 290 degrees which is significantly higher than OA sublimation temperature. If it does reach temperatures above this then what forms is Acrolein ... but in the proportions used for a binder even if some did reach this stage it would be minimal. Glycerin is used in E-cigarettes and small amounts of Acrolein are not considered seriously harmful although, like most aldehydes it is considered carcinogenic.
The other option is talc which is virtually inert when heated at normal temperatures, or possibly microcrystalline cellulose ... more experiments required.
OK .. Let's put this to bed ...No - I remember the conversation on it (instigated by the 'inventor') on this forum
