    Cheap and strong glue

    For tubes i still find that simple PVA works best, wheat paste and dextrine might set a bit harder but after a while they go soft on you, i have here on my desk a tube I rolled a month ago, when I rolled it, it was hard as rock, today it's soft. I used dextrin glue which is hygroscopic. PVA is not hygroscopic and sets hard. Ain't to pricey also, 2€ for a 1 liter bucket, and it goes a LONG way.

    RvD2002, the sizzling things in the mine are hummers, basicla a paper tube filled with a BP + metal composition and blocked on both ends with clay, then a hole is drilled in the tub at an angle so when it igintes it turns at high speed producing that sizzling or humming sound. Fyver, this get togehter was a joint effort of 5 pyros listed at the end of the movie so i did not make all those shells (For my four it took me two days )

    Greets Well for those silver shells you see in the movie they all have D1 glitter in them. The comets on the 4 shells are made from a charcoal streamer composition which is the following Potassium nitrate - 53.5% Charcoal - 26.5% Sulfer - 10.5% Dextrine - 9.5% Everything else that is a charcoal streamer is a basic Chrysanthemum 6 mix. For the shell at 2:05 i can't tell what the composition was because i didn't make it. The shell at 1:47 was a better pearl mix (made with VERY fine aluminium so the effect is not as it should be) Most of the shells were round (The 4 with comets on them were 60mm, other were I think 75mm with one of them being 100mm (the one at 2:30)) We also had one multi break but only one break exploded (2:41) The rapid firing cake at 0:25 had small 35mm shells in the, each one broken with 2g of KNO3 flash. You were very close -.B.- The mine at the end had a golden glitter and some hummers The glitter's formula is I belive KNO3 - 55% Sulfur - 7% Charcoal - 17% Magnalium - 3% (100-200mesh) Aluminium - 10% (Atomized, 325mesh) Red iron Oxide - 4% Dextrine - 4% If you guys have any more question ask them, i'll try and answer them Glad you like the shells. Oh, stinjtje, the secons song is 666 - Supa dupa fly Cheers

    Aerial shell

    Crap is all i can say. Only one of the breaks ignited. Oh well, guess i'm going to have to make another one to make it work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkXgMqBn5fU Cheers

    Visco Fuse Machine

    Hehe, oh well, gonna make some slight changes so it will only need one person to operate it. Firstly the funnel that feeds the powder into the first dye will be fixed to the machine in a way that it can be removed when i have to change the empty string rolls or when something else unpredictable happens Second, something vibrating, probably from a mobile phone, will be fixed to the funnel so you don't have to tap it constantly. After i makes these changes it will be a one man operation . Hopefully this will be the end of construction and fuse production will begin. Cheers

    Indeed it is, i had no other black powder on hand so i just used what was lying around. I still need to tune it down a bit so i get around 1cm/s. Thanks for the nice words. Cheers
