    Red face WTK: Benrite bluing salts

    This is for the old timers here. A friend gave me a 50lb drum of benrite bluing salts. The problem is there is no directions of what the ratio to distilled water is. Does anyone know?
    Thanks

    Never heard of Benrite, but most salt and water solutions kinda "self adjust" in that the temperature of the mix is maintained/adjusted by adding water or letting it boil off. If you know what temp it is used at, I would just add enough water to the dry salts to make it a liquid slurry and heat it up to temp, adding water as necessary to stabilize it at that temp.

    Start with 9LB of salts per gal of water
