Oh wow, I can tell a lot of work and expertise went into this. Thank you.

 

The internet is amazing, but it's nice having all this information organized into one single source.

Thanks AP for your efforts.

A Kiwi new to pyrotechnics here.

I got to fireworks after making charcoal for my smoker. Couldn't bear the thought of buying it from overseas. That lead me to fireworking. Currently I have an experimental batch of charcoaled pinus radiata needles running in the home made ball mill. Yay for tired tread mills - bearings shafts, speed control, strong permanent magnet DC motor etc. More importantly they were free!

Like yrself, I like to do/make/improvise as much as I can.

 

We seem to take a dim and discouraging view to pyrotechnics here in godzone, so all leads for chems is appreciated.

Hi there from a new Aus member, envious of all you folks who live in a place where this art is still supported or at least allowed, I'm totally hooked though
