"spirits" soaked sawdust

updated thu 31 oct 96 on sun 6 oct 96

Has anyone ever heard of soaking sawdust in white spirits before a sawdust
firing? Is this mineral spirits? Could you use charcoal lighter fluild? What
precautions would you then need to handle the firing? Does anyone think this
would help a sawdust firing? Paula Sibrack, Sherman, CT
