Pricing of what? Private messages are free. If you mean the machine I would have no idea. I find it incredible you can't just buy visco. If you ordered from USA would it be contraband? You guys should never have surrendered your firearms. We have loss of some freedoms in other aspects so I understand your frustrations. Wish I could just send you visco. Our legislators are slowly eroding our freedoms because legislators legislate because they know what's best for us they believe -but there is a point where they may go to far here as well.

Now that I know what your intended purpose is I think you will need a hot powder core that is sheathed sort of like flying fish fuse. Have you thought about taking a tube and drilling tangential holes- angled at each end in the side s of the tube and ramming a clay plug then ramming BP and then ramming a top plug. Once lit they spin like crazy and may even leave the ground. Plenty of excitement without visco. I have only read of them not made any ground devices. Can't remember what they are called... chasers, go getters or something like that.

Yeah I know! Is just fucking fuse! I currently don’t have an importers license to get it. If I order it in it will pass customs then onto the feds. They’ll see “explosive” and slap me with a $525,000 fine or 10 years jail.... I was talking about the machine but that’s ok. Here in Australia if something like fireworks hurts someone, instead of just saying “well, fuck we can’t control everything the public does” they ban the whole network! Or In this case have 16 different permits and licenses for fireworks...

yeah I’ve done that, gogetters but we call the, killer bees lol. They are a bit tedious to make and I would like them to whistle but I need to get some kclo3 for that, again banned. I’ll have to make it. The thing with the Visco is my family love my fireworks and the littlies like to light them but I’m not too keen on them doing that as it’s risky, instead I made circles of Visco and slightly pointed one end down and one end up and light both and they take off! They love it but I don’t have any Visco and I can’t get it again. I like to have shells and things ready for when they come over so those killer bees are a waste of time imo. I’d rather just let them light Visco and they get the same amount of enjoyment.

I’m actually going to help out at our biggest fireworks franchise in Australia on Friday, I do that every now and then. I’ll ask them if they know what I should do. It would be a dream come true if they gave me a roll lol

The issue is that your authorities watch the same threads and posts that you do, If I write "go and see Del boy for fuse",-del boy gets raided before you get there. Maybe you need to be very creative with powder and very small tubes and make spinners like torbillions. In fireworks there are usually two to ten ways of achieving the effect you want, especially if you don't need to price the time taken -it's a hobby after all.

yeah, the thing is. AFP (Australian federal police) would be more interested in people selling fireworks rather than fuse, they probably wouldn’t even raid him. The last raid was 2 years ago at a Chinese shop that’d been going for decades. So Del Boy would be pretty fine. Who is Del Boy anyway? Sounds oddly familiar

I tried that, most of the websites have been shut down considering it was like 9-10 years ago. There is a lot of off topic talk so finding a single lead on Visco in 12 pages is worthless

Just made some double strung black match with some aluminium powder in it. Works like a charm, quick match is fantastic and haven’t had it fail yet.

You could try the clingwrap and meal powder method. Its waterproof, consistent and fairly resistant to sidespit crossfire.

I already have. Personally I don’t think it’s worth the time you put in for one fuse. I’m going to make a Visco machine and see if it’s better than black match. I like black match more than spollette because you can make a ton more with less effort. It’s not that I don’t put/like putting time into it, it’s just that I’m simply not a fan of spollette

Take a day to crank out a bunch of them. Having them premade will make you a big fan.

Spollets are used because they give very precise timing in shells. You won't be timing much with black match, not very accurately at least ;)

Spollettes are used for timing, and sometimes when you can't get visco or time fuse. Hence seem to be ideal for the OPs needs

Yeah, I like to hand light things. It feels more authentic compared to my firing system. I use it a lot and it works great but I like Visco
