48th Post:        Silicon atoms are much bigger than the copper atoms and would also make a stiff metal...interstitial alloy.  I go the opposite...I try to find an additive close to the row on the periodic table close to copper to create the same affect.  I have no idea what Silicon/bronze alloy is used for.

      I don't know what may have changed the last twenty-five years, but silicon-bronze was the choice for fasteners in wooden boat work... Like the others here, I admire and appreciate ALL the work you've been doing, Louis.....
