    If you say so - haven't tried any yet that I know of, but want to be ready in case.

    Now, how do you tell for sure whether it is mag or aluminum? Agree with pickle?

    I've been told that you can't really get a good brilliance on magnesium. Anybody know anything?

    Also, any reliable way to tell mag from aluminum?

    Thanks.
