In Topic: Is Black Oxide The Same As Black Iron Oxide

24 September 2014 - 06:56 AM

Without a chemical analysis its impossible to say exactly whats in that "black oxide".
We can make some guesses as to content based on the anthracite/coal makeup. Anthracite is a type of coal and they are combustible and may contain a fair amount of sulfur . This could be bad in an electric kiln or indoors.
Not sure it will be of much use.

Best cutoff wire I've used is multi stranded stainless fishing leader. Look for companies such as American Fishing Wire or similar.

Great stuff.

Even then you will need to have some sort of connection across the back/top.
