    I wonder if mixing with acetone to a paste would work, but 86 the aluminum powder as that
    "may" cause oxidizing and combustion.. (not sure of that, it has a good chance doing that with water though).

    I wonder if homeowners insurance covers house explosions from making primers. I knew a guy that blew up his house his grandmother and the two row homes on either side of them in Upper Darby in the 80's. What the heck was his name Seth something or other graduated Marple Newtown 1977?

    You guys up for using corrosive primers? I'll pass.
