Making electrolyte solutions accurately with electronic scales can be problematic.

Electronic scales have a feature called auto zero.  If you put a weight on the scale and then turn it on, it will automatically read zero.  Thats a nice feature.

However, if you turn the scale on, and then add weight a small amount at a time, it will keep re-zeroing, and the result is that the final result is heavier than it should be.  The scale reads light.

The solution is to put a known weight on the scale first before adding the chemical.  I use an American nickel which is 5 grams.  Once you put the weight on the scale, it will defeat the auto-zero function, and it will read 5 grams.  Then weigh out your chemical until it weighs 5 grams plus the weight you want.  So if you wanted 10 grams of chemical, the scale will read 5 + 10, or 15 grams total.

And don't forget that baked baking soda and commercial washing soda weigh different because of the water in the washing soda.

10.6 grams for baked baking soda (anhydrous sodium carbonate) ith enough distilled water to make 100ml(anhydrous sodium carbonate)
12.4 grams for Arm & Hammer washing soda (sodium carbonate dihydrate) with enough distilled water to make 100ml.

If you don't have Arm & Hammer brand, I recommend baking the water out of it first and using the 10.6 gram amount.

Other Stuff / Fountain of Youth

There was a recent TV program called "Unexplained And Unexplored".  The show features 2 men who search for lost and/or abandoned treasures.
This show was about the search for the Fountain of Youth.
You might be able to watch it at:

The explorers traced the route of Hernando DeSoto, the Spanish Explorer and conquistador and ended up in the Hot Springs area of Arkansas.
Local historians showed the explorers where artifacts were found known to be from De Soto's soldiers.
A spring or small rivulet was found in the area which matched local legends and historical records.
A sample of the water was taken and then analyzed by a lab which specialized in rejuvenation and longevity.
The analysis of the water showed huge amounts of silver and silica, which probably accounted for its ability to heal De Sotos wounds which he incurred from battles with native indians.

Do you have any recommendations for a quality dc supply?

SilverTron Notes And Support Questions / Re: Silvertron elite and colloidal gold

No, and if you live in the USA, you do not need any equipment to make colloidal gold.
For electrolysis, you need a dc power supply capable of at least 30 volts and 250ma current; more is better.
