ALUMINUM & RED TORCH
COMMENTS: This composition is a modification of the Aluminum Torch. Suggested dimensions for this torch are 2.22 cm diameter and 45 cm length.
PREPARATION (parts by weight):
Before ramming, this formula should be moistened with a solution consisting of 1 part shellac with 16 parts alcohol; using 1 part of this solution to every 36 parts of composition. As this mixture is somewhat difficult to ignite, it is necessary to scoop out a little from the top of the torch and replace it with a fire-starting composition. Meal powder can be used for this purpose.
