How to ball mill magnesium safely.

Rate this Entry
Hi everyone, so I have been making compositions with magnesium for about a year now with pretty low mesh powder, but I just bought a ball mill and I have been using it for about 2 weeks. The other day when I opened my ball mill it burst into flames as soon as I opened it. I have been researching how to prevent this and wanted to ask all of you guys for help. What types of things can I do to prevent this in the future. I was also wondering where I should store magnesium and other metals safely. Is it better outside or inside, and what temperature, etc. Thank you.
