    Guy's, beware of the "teflon flu", vapourous teflon is not your friend.

    The Cookware I use is all coated with Titanium Nitride, and unlike teflon, you can use metal implements in it.

      I dont know about aluminum specifically but if a person with alzhmeiers has the heavy metals removed form their body it will slow the progression

        I've never had any trouble finding alum in the spice section of any supermarket.

          Is it simply called "alum", or is there some other name for it, like "pickle spice"? Maybe it's a regional thing, but I swear, I ran out of ideas on where to look. It was weird.

          The curse of having precise measuring tools is being able to actually see how imperfect everything is.

              Aluminum is however a light metal. Light metals tend to be non-toxic and used by the body, examples being sodium, magnesium, potassium, manganese and calcium. Aluminum is an odd one as it has no known function in the body and should not be accumulated.

                      Back to the original point -- will this work with taps stuck in steel? I assume this works because only the steel is reduced by the alum.

                        It will probably work faster. Not only will it dissolve the tap it will also dissolve the part making the hole larger

                            I wouldn't try it with steel. I don't think it would be "selective" in the way you might want, and it'll just eat at everything.

                              Interesting info...but wouldn't it make your "pickle" shrink too thus negating any advantage?

                                If you need to pay for a P.O.A. alittle shrinkage will not stop you getting off Quick.
                                IMHO,not from expierience.
