other than the magnets does it sound practical?

maybe could be used for DDT attempts, because the chamber would be safer because there would be no holes in the chamber

Any sufficiently strong chamber with an epoxy inner coating could possibly work, but I don't think that this design has any real power advantage over existing methods like electrolysis, and the wear on all of the components would make it very expensive.

I don't know if HCl eats at epoxy or not. I can test that when I get home though. If I don't post anymore after today, it probably caught fire and blew up.

how bout make a steel tank with epoxy lined inside you hook you hook up some flexible tubing to your realy tank , the epoxyu lined tank hold the works and aluminim then the hydrogen biulds up and goes into your real tank you close the ball valve on you real tank and now you have compressed hydrogen? eh will it work? :)

Uh, it will work, if I understood your unintelligible babble correctly. Would work very quickly if you used aluminum powder rather than foil.

200psi is pretty darn good pressure for a chemical reaction (at least for people who use bike pumps) Why can't you use PVC as a chamber? If you want more pressure, could you just sleeve the PVC in steel?
By the way, I'm pretty sure the name for the soda bottle bomb is a "Drano bomb" (drano is a popular brand of drain cleaned).

Why? I thought synthetics like PVC don't corrode? Besides, soda bottles don't corrode.

Indeed, there is always room for more entrants. Though I have to say, in my 9th grade science class we hooked up a funnel to a gas line, dipped it in bubble solution and used it to blow bubbles.

...

Which we then ignited.



We did that, 9th 10th and 11th. Fun times

Um, but it dosent use drano, if you but drano and Al in a bottle together i dont think anything would happen.

Anyways ive always heard it as a works bomb
