At some point in this pyroart adventure, we start to hear or get the feeling, that we need a ball mill to grind chemicals very fine or to make highquality black powder. This project will not attempt to be a comprehensive review of ball milling.

I recommend using a mortar and pestle for this, which you can get at any cooking store.
