Thread: My homemade black powder

  1. #1721
    I got mine from Duda Deisel.
    Thanks, I just ordered 10 pounds of sulfur and 5 pounds KNO3 from them.

    I successfully made charcoal tonight. I used Poplar. I do not know if this is a good wood or not, but as I have lots of scrap Poplar, I used it.

    I first tried it on my grill side-burner. After going an hour and then shutting it down, it had just started turning black.

    So, I put the paint can in my metal-melting furnace. It worked great, but burned the bottom out of my paint can. I'm going to need something more rugged for a retort.

    I use a fish cooker/turkey fryer.

    Harbor freight Dutch oven works for me. Cheap and tough. Just had to drill a hole in the lid.

    I'm sure many of you already know this, but for those who don't:



    (d) Except for the purposes of subsections (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), (i), and (j) of section 844 of this title, "explosives" means any chemical compound mixture, or device, the primary or common purpose of which is to function by explosion- the term includes, but is not limited to, dynamite and other high explosives, black powder, pellet powder, initiating explosives, detonators, safety fuses, squibs, detonating cord, igniter cord, and igniters.

    (h) "Manufacturer" means any person engaged in the business of manufacturing explosive materials for purposes of sale of distribution or for his own use.

    (n) "Distribute" means sell, issue, give, transfer, or otherwise dispose of.

    A outdoor smoker fire box works also or a campfire.
