OH BOY... 1400 IS NOT ENOUGH I THINK..1800+ OVER TIME, QUICKLIME IS DANGEROUS..AND CAN EXPLODE WUITH ANYCONTACT ON MOISTURE..EVEN THAT MOSITURE IN YOUR EYES AND NOSE... PLEASE READ UP AND REASEARCH ONLINE BEOFRE TRYING ANYTHING WITH LIME OPPSS capps..sorry slaking quicklime in water is the dangerous part- highly reactive lime will bubble furiously ( normal) and release steam , feebly hydraulic will bubble slowly... making a GOOD lime putty is best left to the lime producers. buying hydrated lime in bags is safest, and has controlled production. I applaud your enthusiasm, but please learn a lot more before you jump in visit the NLA site- national lime association site www.lime.org http://www.lime.org/publications.html they will not teach you how to do this yourself either. good luck On Oct 12, 2005, at 12:42 AM, karl and tabitha o'melay wrote: > has anyone made their own quicklime?
