    Ive read that you can make aluminum dust from first shredding tin foil, putting it into a blender for a while then milling it in a drum with some steel bearings for several weeks. Is tehre any other way of creating aluminum dust w/o the milling process? Could you grind it up between sand paper?

    Whoa!!! It sounds to me like you might be trying to make thermite and I would strongly advise you NOT to do that. If you need aluminum dust and you are in a an academic / professional setting contacting your chemical stores as well as your research advisor would be the best way to get this material.. otherwise you are likely doing something illegal and I wold strongly advise against that.
