Ok, I can't get the actual video file on, but i took out four frames from start to end so here they are.  Yes, its strapped to a tree.

This is first smoke coming out after delay fuse burnt out.

One problem with sulfur/zinc powder smoke is that when heated and compressed it can become flamable.  I also made the mistake of making the delay fuse housing out of plastic.  It caught fire and then ignited the smoke in large bursts of flame for about ten seconds until the plastic was incenerated.

After the fire stopped it ran smoothly for the rest of the time.

Back shot after flames stropped.

I think in the next test it will run much better with a metal fuse housing.

Here are some pictures of current stuff to be tested.  It also turns out that i do have video of the smoke going off, but i am having trouble getting onto livejournal.

Smoke after firing, bottom.

Picture045.jpg

Smoke, inside fuse box, electrical fuse

Picture043.jpg

Demo charge, very small testing charge, bottom, light/non-metal part is where the cutting force comes out

Picture042.jpg

From the top, bends in metal direct flow of explosive force

Picture041.jpg\

HE grenade fuse only, electrical fuse, upside down because epoxy drying in fuse well

Picture040.jpg

Other side of fuse, secondary safety pin hole at bottom

Hopefully I can get the video uploaded and pictures or video of these being tested.  The other advantage of the smokes is they are reloadable.

This is froma while ago, but no one is posting anything here so.  This is a smoke grenade, homemade from some metal pipe, sheet metal, wire, mercury fulminate, 9V battery, sulfur powder, and zinc powder.  Worked like it was supposed to.

ye, im new here. I like fire, and bombs, and guns. My hobie is designing and attempting to build new guns and bombs. If you need info on how to make some good stuff out of household items, i can help you. My current project is a laser guided napalm missile. By far my favorite project is the classic flamethrower. simple, quick, burn the shit outa everything. Oh and a tip to anyone making napalm. You may have heard styrofoam and gas makes napalm. It doesnt, it makes a similar substance. for military grade napalm take a bunch of lithium grease (from a homedepot or something) and mix it with a shit load of gas until its however thick you want it. It works. good. real good.

Hello
Im new to this community but I too love to play with fire.Me and my friend used to buy full cans of spray paint ( cheap ) and then tape live gun ammo to the cans.Then we'd set the spray paint can in the middle of a trash pile and set it ablaze and then we would run into the building and watch and wait from upstairs for the shit to start exploding.Arsol cans weather empty or full make quite a bang when fire hits them.You just dont want to be standing near the fire pile when these go off.So if youre gonna do this be sure to set the cans in the middle of the brush/trash pile and ignite the pile near the bottom then get away from being near the pile maybe hide behind some kind of sheild where you can see and hear the shit exploding but not be in the danger path.Its pretty fucking cool when arsol cans explode,they are pretty loud when they do.

hello!
i'm new. so figured i'd write something in this thinger.
i recently almost set my house on fire. because i lit a piece of paper that was taped to a flimsy wooden shelf full of flamable cleaning products.
i've set off the smoke alarm many times in my room and the kitchen, but i removed the one in my room because it went off so often.
i used to own a plaid zippo that i carried w/ me everywhere but i lost it, so now i'm stuck w/ a plain one.
also part of my middle finger is covored in plastic because it melted and dripped onto my finger while i was lighting que tips on fire to see what would happen, i let it dry of course.

one of my favorite games is lighting a match (ciggarettes work too) and sticking it between your and someone elses forearm. and the first one to pull away loses. it's like playing ckicken w/ fire.
(ha that sounds funny...chicken w/ fire)
alrightie thats all.

this is me a few nights ago when my friends dared me to sit on an ottoman we had just put on the fire. don't ever try this (unless you're as crazy as me). believe it or not, i didn't get burned. just the very ends of my eyelashes were singed.

Hey Everyone, im new. I love fire. I used to take cockroaches, some nail polish remover and burn them, not really any here though so i cut down. Ive started many fires, including one in my kitchen. Burnt a huge spot in the carpet. Ive started a brish fire behind my house that got flames about 11 feet high, we let it burn for about a half hour before the cops got called. Although i smoke at random times, I love to take cigs and just watch them burn, wether its a waste or not. I have 3 or 4 Zippos, and like 30 BIC's. I dont burn myself but it remains to be seen for how long it stays that way.

Oh God guys... What's happened to us? This community is slowly... NO! I can't say it! Goonies never say die! Oh shit... I just did huh? Oh well... I think we should all start trying to recruit members'n shit, but its just a suggestion. I mean, look at us, it seems as if we've forgotten our little slice of this here internet. Sure, some of us have a few more slices than others, but should each and every piece be just as precious as the others? Unless like, one of them sends you money all the time, and then it's like, a little bit better than the rest. Maybe we shouldn't stick so closely to the fire deal... I mean, you can only burn so much shit before you either get hurt or bored. The main reason fire gave me such a thrill was because I only got to play with it every now and then. So come on, break free of the chains that bind us, and um, do free-like things. Now that I've said my piece, I'll step down off my lil soapbox and shut up... Thanks everyone!

Seems like forever since I last posted in here. No new stories, sorry. I just kind of felt the need to let anyone who was concerned know I'm still alive, least thats what they tell me... I dunno. You guys take it easy, and keep the fire burning.

First time poster. <3

Name's Alexandra, I like fire, although I'm not truly obsessed with it. I'm fifteen, etc, etc.

When I was about thirteen I started burning my Barbies. I would take nail polish remover, douse my Barbies, light a match, and...

KER POW! XD

Anyway, recently I had some fireworks and my friends (one is joined here, sn is adrone), got bored of setting them off individually.

Sooo, i had some nail polish remover (we were going to light the paper bags we brought the fireworks in on fire) and my friend got the brilliant idea to dump it on the bag after we put all the remaining fireworks in it.

So we do.

We are in a field.

We light the bag.

We run like all hell.

About a minute later:

BAM!! SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! PA-KOW!!

The bag EXPLODES with bottle rockets, roman candles, all shooting in multiple directions.

..I love fire. :D

Empty Lighters [11 Aug 2004|08:53pm]

Imagine the scene:

Your disposable lighter is out of lighter fluid.

Now, no, don't freak out. The world is not over. You can still have fun with an empty lighter!!

Here's what I do: So, I take my empty lighter. And I find some fireflies. And then I start sparking it. And the fireflies think I'm another firefly, talking to them. And they get pissed off. (oh yea, this works only at night)

So here I am. Pissing off the world, one firefly at a time.

Is anyone else more of a careful pyro?

When I burn things, I always keep it on a non-flammable surface...
I always have some water beside me in case something goes wrong...

I hope SOMEONE else does this...
