I got a chance to do some "pickup" after the closing of a manufacturing plant locally. Found some industrial plastic material, green in color, one inch thick. Any idea what it might be? Respectfully, Ron Moore
If it floats, then it is probably a witch, procede to the next step.
If it smells like a witch be prepared to explain just exactly how you what a burning witch smells like.
This helps because the degree of evil the witch has obtained the bore they resist burning. If they spontaniusly combust by tying them to the stake, then they are in fact not a witch but a pure demon, if they do not burn at all no matter how hot the fire, then they are innocent and you are in a big heap of trouble.
This helps those who witness the trial be firm in their faith and allows them to to postulate the degree of the wiche's guilt.
If so, you may gather the soot and use it to prove global warming is going to destroy the planet, and that George Bush should have never been on the ballot in Florida or Ohio as neither state should have been admitted to the union, it is only a plot of the tri-lateral comission and a zionist conspriacy.
Well, a friend came by today, took one look (and feel) and declared it to be UHMW. Since it came from a ceramics plant, that would make sense. Thanks for all the suggestions. I really wanted to burn some but now I don't have an excuse. All I have to do now is figure out what to do with the slippery stuff. I haven't determined its value yet. Respectfully, Ron Moore
Sorry Ron, I posted the wrong letters (old age?) and actually *meant* UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) when I typed it. I get the stuff from McMaster (usually in rounds) for making some bushings, etc. I also have made some really indestructible mallets with it as you can beat on metal objects as hard as you need to without hurting the metal and not destroying the mallet. Little stringy on the lathe, but it cuts nice with sharp tooling. Peck drilling works. Have fun with it... picture frames, cutting boards in the kitchen, etc. Ken.
Fences and other sliding components for jigs and fixtures, good for proofing parts (like machinable wax), rack to hold cutters without dulling or damaging, etc. Bushings are the most obvious. I use the stuff all the time.
