    A guide for avatars

    We encourage all members to upload an avatar photo to make you recognisable. However, please keep your avatar clean and do not use a photo of a penis (locked or unlocked), or any kind of crotch photo. It can be disconcerting, especially for our ladies, to look at a discussion and see lots of locked penis photos :)
    We have a gallery section where you are welcome to upload photos of you wearing your chastity device. :)

    Behaviour on the site

    Please remember that you are in the company of members who might not be as open minded as you, if you could remember to keep your posts and particularly thread titles respectful to all, that would be very helpful. We like to include all topics related to chastity on the site, but not at the expense of turning others away. :)

    It's best to start at the foyer

    It's good to let everyone know you are new and say a little about yourself. Drop into the Foyer section and leave a "Hello - I am here!" message - long or short, it's up to you. :)

Aluminum

Discussion in 'The Foyer' started by Curiouscouple81c, Aug 3, 2017.

  1. I was curious if anyone has ever seen an aluminum device. Aluminum is much lighter. Wondering if someone knows why it isn't widely used?
     
  2. Yes it is

    For the size I'm not sure the weight savings over stainless is worth it.

    That said, it's possible to forge aluminum, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to make smooth enough to not cause problems. I'm also not sure how easy it would be to control the oxidation and be sure it's safe to wear for extended peorids. I say that as I know cleaning it results in lots of black "stuff" from the oxidation

  3. Aluminium will be more likely to corrode from oxidation than stainless steel , particularly in acidic or salt situations in this case bodily fluids and sweat , also due to its relatively rapid oxidisation properties it can give rise to skin discoloration and or irritation , with prolonged contact , For this type of application if a lighter material than stainless steel is needed then titanium although more expensive is a better choice and far safer ,
     
  4. Impressive, you sound like you know your metals

  6. And I think aluminium or its oxides are not a good thing to absorb into the body. Aluminium is now rare in cooking pans and utensils for the same reason. Gerecke makes titanium cages which are very light and very strong, but also very expensive.
     
  7. Yes, my grandfather was a prospector, who'd been to the bauxite (aluminium ore) areas there. He wouldn't eat from anything cooked in aluminium pan, as he'd noted everything downwind was dead for hundreds of miles. If you try to grow seedlings in an aluminium container, they will die. So when I found all the aluminium pots, pans, jugs and mugs, serving and eating utensils in my current place, from the days when it had been a cafe in the 1960s, they all went straight in the scrap bin.

  8. It's part of what I do also. I sometimes still work with metal ( not just on my cage Ha )
