    Pool supply store? With that said, I don't think that I know any guys who use hydrochloric for etching damascus.

    Then I will be the first one to know.
    I found an online store in Ohio that will sell me concentrated solution. Thought maybe you guys have a preferred source on East Coast.

    Just look for muriatic acid in pool supplies or hardware store. Why are you using HCl though?

    We have enough trouble finding a consistent source of ferric chloride other than Radio Shack. This sounds too much like work. By the way, good luck with the hazmat charges for shipping that stuff from Ohio to New York.

    Marko,
    A good hardware store should carry it, I have one near me thats a hardware/lumberyard that stocks it by the gallon.
    its also used for cleaning concrete.

    Menards carries it and you might check at Kamco, ask for muriatic acid. Its the same stuff.
    By the way, everybody loves you here, so don't breathe the fumes and wear rubber gloves, that stuff is nasty. Its the same stuff our bodies make to digest food, only stronger.

    You know anybody in an academic science field??? I used to get it from my H.S. chemistry teacher, and then a friend who was a professor. Used it to clean masonry and they were able to obtain higher Molar concentrations than I was.

    Sometimes the fastest way to find things is online. I will check the hardware stores near me.
    Thanks for suggestion, Del -

    Never mind on the why, I answered my own question.
