GOT SILVER FOR Y2K?!!! Seeking Forum Suggestions for Colloidal Silver Generators : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

Lots of stuff done .... mostly done .... but I had this urge suddenly to get me a colloidal silver generator. Of course there are dozens out there and I will go search out the websites; but I would like to know what TBY2K participants recommend for AC/DC colloidal generators and for BATTERY OPERATED colloidal silver generators. Espeically ianterested in battry operated, since I can work out a system to recharge my Ni-Cads. Thanks all.

Sheesh, here we go again. Hang on, you're gonna get some humongous posts that copy other posts going back to the dawn of time.

Near as I can tell, any voltage above about 25 will create colloidal silver from .999 silver bar, foil, thread, coin, you name it. AC/DC seems to have more to do with your philosophy than with quality control. I'm thinking of building a little inverter with Radio Shark parts. It's not the wattage, it's the volts. Use plain water, not salt, the pundits tell us.

My chemist friend says you can't do real quality control or quantitative analysis for under a million dollar investment. There are no controlled studies, just rumors. So for gosh sakes be careful, because you're doing medical experiments on yourself and your family.

Suggest you use it topically when you think appropriate, and take it internally only when you really think you need it. I'd suggest never using it at all, but maybe it'll be all we have ...

Don't use 'plain water' --- make sure it's distilled. (I use a solar distiller on sunny days and a mini wood/coal/charcoal stove distiller otherwise.)

As 'bw' points out, there are at least 3,785,413 other posts on this subject, many of them re-hashes of each other. Ugh!!

I know we need pure water (distilled), pure silver (.9999 pref, but .999 ok), little or no pure salt to get it started (some say baking soda?), and 30 volts or more (27 minimal and convinient).

Where is the cheapest place to get .999 or .9999 (I would prefer) pure silver? Preferably in heavy wire form (~14 or 12 guage) just for convenience? Anyone's honest help appreciated.

.999 silver rounds from a good bullion dealer (or an eBay auction, where I've bought several) are your best bet. You should be able to get them for a little over 6 bucks a troy ounce, which is a *lot* of silver for what you'll be doing.

Buying the same thing in wire form will probably cost you in the neighborhood of 50-150 an ounce.

Here's where I get my strips of silver.

Bill - thank you. SH - sorry, in my haste I said "plain" when I meant "pure" as in distilled. Whatever you do, keep your ingredients as pure as you can get them. And be careful with what you ingest.

Ouch, I think I'll stick with my six dollar one troy ounce rounds!

Thanks, many thanks.......

One question though, to bw: where do I get those Radio Shark parts?

-- SH (, November 09, 1999. has a real good unit. Bought one several years ago and still going strong!

-- smitty (, November 09, 1999.

Jaws VII - Radio Shark. Yeah, I think that was it.
