What is the best way to cut down the Mag inserts?
From what I have read on here and pirate, bandsaw. And becareful to not catch it on fire.
I used a verticle bandsaw.
when mag catches on fire it will burn vary vary hot and is a pain the a$$ to put out.
1. Get the proper fire extinguisher !!!!! (type C, I think, not sure)
2. Use a band saw
3. DO NOT LET FILINGS PILE UP-- magnesium dust is highly flammable, and difficult to extinguish
4. If you have a fire, DO NOT USE WATER, it will make the fire worse
5. Search the internet for the safety precautions, this stuff can be deadly!
magnesium is so much fun when it catches on fire! it makes pretty white light and destroys my turnout gear. what are you talking about?
Yep magnesium is fun, I really don't know why everyone makes such a fuss over it.
