      Very interesting tone of your post:
      "-Show some resoursefullness. ... It will make you better."

      I've got much more time to research all of these things than to
      actually work at them. In total I've probably spent over 80 hours
      researching organoclays. I've got chemical reactions, methods, and
      formulas to create the compound using bentonite and various
      quaternary ammonium compounds. I've got sources of both. I've got
      lists of companies who manufacture the product for: oil drilling,
      paint manufacture, cosmetic additives, water filtration, etc. I've
      contacted about half a dozen companies directly, not to mention most
      of the local outfits, to get the different components, including
      the top silica producer in the states (they were not very helpful by
      the way).

      I appreciate your web site very much and all of the information you
      share but just because I don't say I've spent over two weeks full
      time researching the products, it doesn't mean that I'm not
      resourseful. This group is for the sharing of information, it is
      part of the process to grow our knowlege base.

      If you don't want to "spoon feed" people, then don't. But by the
      time you type that in, you could have just as easily have shared
      your information (which you did).


      PS- Ray, your web site is one that I have been visiting very often
      over the past several months. It, and the work that you do, have
      been an inspiration to me and have kept me interested in this very
      time consuming hobby. I can't thank you enough for taking the time
      to share with us.
