More Water

well, I cleaned out all my parts yesterday, and sterilized them, friends were over so I didn't get a chance to take pics.

HOWEVER, word of WARNING!

DO NOT...
I repeat
DO NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
use potassium metabisulphite to sterilize your blocks!!!!!
DO NOT!!!!
and if you do..... RINSE EXCESSIVELY WELL!

I found out the hard way after doing a brief search online about it (and not finding anything)
that potassium metabisulphite Corrodes metals Quite badly, I diluted the solution and rinsed the blocks out after pouring it through. however Some (in very dilute solution) stayed in the blocks.
that was last night, this morning, I spend an hour and a half trying to clean little black spots out of my blocks. Needless to say, I will be sending most of them back for Warranty (If I can, or having my Brother Re-plate them if I can't)
But on with the project, Best friend comes tonight, and I will NOT delay. (the damage is all superficial, and it is just the look of the blocks that was compromised but still Harsh)

if I hadn't have rushed to pick them up last night, I wouldn't of had time to wash them last night, and would have got Brand new one this morning .... Sad face for being impatient.
