YOU MUST TAKE NOTE OF THE POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUES NOTED AT THE END.
YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
NADA NADA NADA.
Had to re-iterate this:
If this is doing what I assume it is, then there is serious risk here.
I DO NOT
want to hear that the next spate of "Unexplained Deaths" is through unfortunate experimentation with Cold Fusion.
Here it is, step by step:
Take 1 Can:
Chop off the top. (mind your fingers.)
Beat the bottom into a "Dome". It is possible to go further than this.
Mark out the Can. For Fill Location and folding lines.
(Fill levels are
Bottom Radius = 65mm (1/2)
1st Fill Point = 32.5mm (16g Lead)
2nd Radius = 32.5mm (1/4)
2nd Fill Point = 81.25mm (4g Tin)
3rd Radius = 8.125mm (1/16)
3rd Fill Point = 101.5mm (0.5g Silicon)
Fill to top.
Crimping the CAN.
Next you can see where i've "cut" the top slightly so I can close up the gap. (Heat retention)
It would be nice to remove the fins, but it is not easy. I have tried.
Good Set of scales and a Pot: Then weight the items.
This is where you learn how good an insulator dry earth is, melting the bits.
Bit blurry, but you get the idea.
Now, for this attempt I had no Gold plating, it was like 2nd Jan. So I improvised.
Just a speck. 1/64th (imagine, that's all that's needed to plate the can!!)
So, filling. Starting with this attempts "improvising. (It needs plating really, which I am about to try)
I put just a dusting of Earth on the bottom of the can. (I had given it an extra punch in the middle at the bottom to accomodate this.) The Eye of
Horus 1/64 does point at this place? That was my thought at the time.)
The blip of gold is in the middle.
Fill to the first point, 32.5mm with Dry Earth and then drop in the Lead.
Fill to the next point with dry earth, 81.25mm, then drop in the Tin.
Fill to the next point, 101.5mm, then pop carefully in a straw.
Fill to the top with dry earth, leaving the straw in place.
Put the sand down the straw with a "paper funnel" or similar.
You should end up with something like this?
Pop it somewhere hot, Gas mark x - (250 - 300 - 400 etc.)
NOT LIKE THIS:
The can melts at 600C!!
I have also used the oven, up to about 400C, As long as you like I guess.
The Earth goes really really BLACK once it get's really really hot.
IT STAYS HOT FOR A VERY LONG TIME AFTER YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE HEAT.
Dry Earth is a very very very good insulator. The metal will take several hours to cool.
Poor ICE COLD water on it for 5 minutes.
Then watch it burn your hand.
NEUTRON Radiation, potential hazard?
If it works for you, then it is I think?
Do this outside is my bet. Away from kids, Pets etc. The Can as Aluminium will stop 88%, if you've plated it in Gold then 98-99%, background radiation
only or less.
Do not look down the spout? 0 Protection.
I have done this 10 times or more to get to here, I have not been ill.
My Rayburn however..... Magnetic.
