:lol: I know a lot of people that share your view on the big corporations. I try to avoid them myself, but it doesn't make sense for me to drive out of my way to go to a mom and pop shop for the same items when it means I'll have to buy more fuel and make the oil companies richer. Everything we buy these days comes from asia or some third world country sweat shop anyway.

I created this alcohol lamp the other day and filled it with 97% isopropyl alcohol... I tried to flame sterilize my scalpel however it left a black residue on the blade... any ideas as to why this happened?

Soot leftover is related to the flame.. A yellow/orange flame is full of soot, while a light-blue flame is not.. What color was your flame?

Who told you to use isopropyl? Read the directions in the first post. This is like people wondering why white rice didn't work for their PF tek.

Use denatured alcohol. The 3% of whatever else is in the iso alcohol is now on your scalpel.

Isopropyl is still burnable, although I'd recommend the denat.. The remaining % in it is just water, but it's not good for the flame cuz it cools it down.. If this kid's stuff was covered w/ soot, I guarantee he wasn't burning a nice clean blue flame..

Yea you guys are right, it wasn't blue, it was definitely orange/yellow... I just thought I read in one of the other posts that you could use iso alcohol... my bad.

They burn clean, and I never smell any fumes ect from them.

Terence McKenna Said:
"We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world."

Earlier today I went to walmart and bought some denatured alcohol (the same exact container that is pictured in the TEK).  My flame still is not completely blue though... although it no longer leaves black stuff on my scalpel!

Even though the flame isn't completely blue, it does turn my needle red fairly quickly... does this mean that it is hot enough?  (I obviously don't know much about this)

Yes. By the time the needle glows red, the red area is completely sterile.

Okay I'm making my lamp tonight, but I don't think I have said drill bit.  We don't really own an array of tools, just random assortments of things here and there.  Does the hole have to be a precise size or could I go slightly smaller/bigger?  I'm just asking for safety's sake.  I don't want any flares.

as long as your wick fits the hole nicely it wont matter but either way be careful with any flame source

Well I gave it a whirl and it works great.  This'll be so much cleaner than using a bic. :grin:
