I bought some at Hershey last year and am running out. Any suggestions on where I can get some calcium carbide rocks for use in my generator?

It is an off the shelf item at Lehman's Hardware. If you are in east central Ohio you can pick some up

Go to your local High School. Make nice to the Chemistry teacher or the Science Dept Head and explain why you want CaC2. Better yet, go in you T and show them. I'm sure they will help.

Go to an industrial welding supply such as "Airgas" that fills and rents Oxygen, Actylene, Propane and CO2 cylinders to industrial businesses. Calcium Carbide is used in the acetylene cylinders to make acetylene gas and they keep a lot of it on hand for this purpose for they have hundreds of cylinders to recharge as they come in from businesses. Drive your Model T and explain what it will be used for and show them. They should love the show and be more than happy to help you. Jim Patrick

My local Army, Navy, Surplus store has 1 lb cans in stock. As a result I have a life time supply of 5 or 6 cans in stock. Look around. You should be able to find it locally without paying large sums for shipping.

When it comes to carbide, don't buy to much at a time as it will degrade even in a sealed can. Once it goes to powder it is worthless. KB
