Solidox Bombs

October 26, 2008

Most people are not aware that a volatile, extremely explosive
chemical can be bought over the counter:  Solidox.Solidox comes in an aluminum can containing 6 grey sticks, and canbe bought at Kmart, and various hardware supply shops for around$7.00.  Solidox is used in welding applications as an oxidizingagent for the hot flame needed to melt metal.  The most activeingredient in Solidox is potassium chlorate, a filler used in manymilitary applications in the WWII era.Since Solidox is literally what the name says:  SOLID OXygen, youmust have an energy source for an explosion.  The most common andreadily available energy source is common household sugar, orsucrose.  In theory, glucose would be the purest energy source,but it is hard to find a solid supply of glucose.Making the mixture:[1]  Open the can of Solidox, and remove all 6 sticks.  One by     one, grind up each of the sticks (preferably with a mortar     and pestle) into the finest powder possible.[2]  The ratio for mixing the sugar with the Solidox is 1:1, so     weigh the Solidox powder, and grind up the equivalent amount     of sugar.[3]  Mix equivalent amounts of Solidox powder, and sugar in a 1:1     ratio.It is just that simple!  You now have an extremely powerfulsubstance that can be used in a variety of applications.  A wordof caution:  be EXTREMELY careful in the entire process.  Avoidfriction, heat, and flame.  A few years back, a teenager I knewblew 4 fingers off while trying to make a pipe bomb with Solidox. You have been warned!SolidOx can no longer be bought in KMart.  A plumbing and heating supplystore, or even Sears may have small quantities for sale, at about$18.00 for 10 stix.
