just made rochelle salts
I just made a batch of rochelle salts. I used a paint can for the water bath and a #10 can for the salt solution. It foams up a lot. Next time I will use the paint can for salt solution and a large pot for the bath. I poured the filtered solution into a container about 15 minutes ago and about 1/4 depth of it is allready precipitate. Hope Im getting rochelle salt as I used the whole 25 oz container of cream of tartar. I dont know how to polarise the crystals as they form.
Our clay box for holding plates is almost dry enough to fire.
We are going to dope with borox for boron, TSP for phosporous, and carbon dust. I am going to try to silver plate the copper sheets. american elements in LA is working on a quote for magnesium sheets.
