Pretty cool!!!!


To become a fireworker, you need five alements...
1. The talent of an artist.   2. The hand of a sculptor.   3. The heart of a poet.   4. The eye of a painter. 
5. The courage of a warrior.  -passfire movie.

Avidus this is the wrong thread to ask this question and you can solve this question in 5 minutes using the search function. PVC is a so called chlorine donator. Search this frome and you will easly find alternatives. Where are you from, maybe you have sm1 close by who can help you.

Firebreather, use caution.

 

This is the same Avidus who claims to be manufacturing "non-lethal" gas and smoke grenades, but had to ask about fusing in another thread -- and showed a generic cutaway drawing as "his" product drawing.  I fear ulterior motives.

I believe he is referring to this thread, and is suggesting that all things considered, this Avidus might be up to things that are more IED's, then pyro.

Most of us isn't in this to get people hurt, and if we do get someone hurt, we "prefer" it's us.

B!

Your rating is "firebreather" and it appears above your avatar. Confusing on mobile devices.
Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

I am going to speak honestly, if I am going to make an EID, I will never use any delay fuse. First of all you have to use Detonator for EID, almost every single EID's are ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, commercial name is ANFO. Everyone can produce it in a short time.

Infact like C4 and RDX also can not detonate with delay fuse. So sorry but you are really ignortant for this subject.

I explained what I am doing and what I am going to do it. If you don't want to give an answer thats your choice. But no one can humiliat me.

:blink:

IIRC, YOU were the one asking how to make a better fuse than visco!

 

Yeah, I know a little bit about explosives, first handling H.E. in 1969.  I cannot say that I am a licensed blaster, because I am not -- My wife is.  I just shoot the stuff. (... as well as fireworks! :o )

 

Keep digging, Avidus, but not in THIS hole.  No treasure here.  We will not give you what you want, because if you are who you say you are, you already know everything you need to know about this subject!  Your being ignorant in these matters raises too many red flags.
