Everyone seems to be after

Everyone seems to be after sodium these days! It's really nothing special although I suppose it is fun to cut a metal with a knife and more so to watch it catch fire with water!

I am rather hesitant to tell you how to construct a Castner or a Downs cell but really, it is quite simple to do! I suggest you consult patents, literature (in particular Ulmann's Industrial Encyclopedia), and then post back with your own idea so that it can be reviewed for safety!

I suppose proper spelling, basic chemical knowledge, and perhaps motivation should be prerequisites to this type of knowledge.
