SS tube for canister

Has anyone tried this?  If so, do you use a release agent or not?

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

I saw a demo once of using SS exhaust pipe as cannister.  He used a sheet of newspaper.  He also said you can use aluminized exhaust header tubing with no release agent, sine the aluminizing makes it nonstick.

Or maybe tossing a regular can in the forge a few times to get some scale built up....just thinking out loud.

I was wondering about this same thing.  Would that work, or would the oxides get reduced back into steel in the low oxygen environment?
