EXTRA BRIGHT TORCH
COMMENTS: According to the original text, "An aluminum torch of heretofore unheard of brilliance and giving an illumination, in the 2.54 cm size, of what is said to be 100,000 candlepower." Testing with paint-grade aluminum revealed that it burns very bright indeed, at a steady, slow burn rate and with little residue. It is easily pressed in tubes.
PREPARATION (parts by weight):
Rub the Vaseline into the barium nitrate. Mix the sulfur and the aluminum separately. Then mix with the Vaseline/barium nitrate mixture. A starting fire mixture is required for ignition.
