dear FOUR special respondents_ominous object must destroy.
____ FOR DECADES, my special M would give me items such as a watch, it would always be contested by my special J & c, this time when no contest possible it was swapped by unknown. I'm scared to death about the my representing it & it representing me. I MUST DESTROY IT, I HAVE BURNT IT OUT, BUT wish you special friends to show me how to rid the remnant 316L stainless steel.

But treating 316L stainless steel with exorcistic acid will generate hexavalent chromium! Time to bring back Randy Fowler and the dog pack.

Andrew, you are not the first with this problem. Amazon is selling the Datastroyer Model 1000 Disintegrator for this need.

To Major Psych - student Australia.

Powder coat it and then sell it on Ebay as an original Aboriginal artifact.

I'll make the first offer.... $2.50, postage to be paid by sender.

I once inherited a bunch of nasty junk from an ex-employee that included a "Ninja Throwing Star." Evil looking thing. I didn't want it, and I didn't want anyone else to have it, either.

I heated it up with a torch and hammered the crap out of it with a ball peen hammer, and made it into a passable ashtray. I still have it.

Hey, guys - give Andrew a fair go! Different backgrounds, different cultures, different ways of looking at things. Even though he's studying psychology that doesn't make him a joke.

Andrew, it will be melted and lose all of its identity if you either (a) give it to a scrap metal dealer who will sell it to a foundry or steelworks for melting, or (b) give it direct to a foundry who will melt it themselves.

What suburb are you in?

DEaR AndrEW,

I have consulted with mY special friends and my fiRst contact CR was quite surprised that you found the answer so elusive. My second contact AP stated the answer would appear in front of your eyes if you looked hard and fast. So, CR&AP both feel that the answer is in here somewhere.
I don't believe it. Sue (big S to us) just phoned to add her two cents worth, stating that her husband (IT) knew what tWo do with it and wood be in touch over the ether.
Hope you find the answer,
ALL the best from your four friends.

RESOLVED_THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND ATTENTION _OMINOUS OBJECT TO DESTROY___you professionals forgot a simple rule of thumb_ conventional methods needs workshop equipment, for a bloody student who does not have this kind of access, simply use a drill press vice and a steel file or a motor-driven tool sharpener and FILE/GRIND it (the object) to shavings then drop it into david jones locker.THANK YOU AGAIN!

Dear David,

Sorry it has taken so long to contact you but we have had our helpers working 24/7 since the very badly damaged item arrived here. We have done our best to re-create the damaged item to its original pristine state using only the finest first pressing limpet oil. My wife Madison (you might know her, she has been in a few films the most famous being SPLASH with Tom Hanks) wanted to keep your lost item. However, after explaining that it was probably a family heirloom greatly missed, she graciously agreed to return it to you in its original most excellent glory.
I have now dispatched it --the courier and method of packaging can be seen here

Please advise us on receipt of same.
Kind regards

Reynolds_yours is the second best practical from my own discovery, AGREED? AND IS THE TOP for anything else above 250 grams 316L stainless steel, I think.

And this from the man from Never Never Land!

What are you using to construct these mailings? A random selection from an English phrase book? A thousand monkeys on a thousand typewriters? Some sort of hallucinatory drug?

Can I join you in your fantasy land? And what has David ever done to you to get such vitriol?

Get a giant pail of Muriatic acid (Hydrochloric acid) and submerge the part in it. Stir from time to time. In awhile. no more stainless. Just a dark green nasty liquid. Not recommended though.
