Re: Direct carbon
They don't hardly make boxwood sawdust any more -- or was it pear tree? Whichever, those were the official "correct" sawdusts, but I went to my local lumber yard (now probably a Starbucks) got a big brown paper bag full of sawdust, gave the guy a dollar, and sieved it at home... using a quite coarse sieve and a slightly finer one for two different "styles."All, Could somebody give me some practical advice for the saw dust development for direct carbon development (Fresson like process). This is something that I ment to try for a while and this discussion has motivated me further to do the experiments. Should I make my own saw dust and what kind? I have read some accounts, but practical advice would be appreciated. Marek Matusz
You only need a couple of handfulls... It lasted forever, think I still have a tray of it somewhere, and when/if it got grungy I rinsed it, let it dry, and put through the sieve again.
