I tried getting some blueprint strength stuff, but the chemical supply house would not sell it to me.
True story: My grandfather had a gallon of ammonia stashed away in the basement woodshop, it was the higher strength stuff....he worked for a company called American Woodcraft, they used it to bend wood. If you brush some onto the wood, wait a minute, it will become rubbery. Thin wood, especially thin plywood becomes very pliable with only a minimal application of the stuff. You have to wear a mask or it'll knock you out. I know, because I was looking for a gallon of fuel, I couldn't tell what was in the jug, so I opened it and took a little sniff.
It is very hard to describe how it felt, but my knees simply gave out, I came to my senses after rolling around on the floor in intense pain for about 30 seconds. It burned my nose and my sinuses pretty good, even my ear holes hurt. It passed after a while, but I felt plugged up for a couple of days.
It was just a little sniff too, I can't imagine what it would have done if I took an all-in
big ol' sniff.
