Started search to find a support paste

Started initial experimentation to find a salt based support paste for use in the second head of the Ianus Rapid Prototyping Machine.

First up is an attempt to use Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate, MgSO4) starting with reducing the commonly available form into a fine ground anhydrous version.

Baking in the oven at 210 Deg Centigrade seems to be working but had to halt the experiment so we could make the evening meal in th oven. Will resume tomorrow.
