Less than a GRAM of EM? I'm guessing the charge wasn't shaped at all?

Is it safe to melt ETN?

Those that do it think it is. But yah... it gets pretty sensitive... DAUN is a much better choice.

You dont need to be around molten ETN to melt it.
Nobody said you should melt it and pour it, swirl it or whatever.

If I had been in OP's shoes I would have mixed my ETN + PETN, put it in a mold and THEN put the mold in boiling water.
Come back 15mn later, remove mold from water, let it cool.
ETN was obviously used a a binder.

As you know, working with explosives requires a lot of attention. Because the first mistake is the last mistake.
The etn sensitivity in the molten state is equal to nitroglycerin. But if it is well neutralized and temperature controlled, it can be melted in a small amount.
