Hey Mark,
Yeh you need to be careful with that magnesium! Had a friend fill a refrigerator box full of magnesium shavings he collected from a machine shop. On a 4th of July he though it was a good idea to throw a road flare into the box while it was sitting under high tension power lines.
Damn thing looked & sounded like a Saturn 5 rocket, flames shot up 60' and melted the insulation off the power lines.
Bonneville power was not impressed!
