That was quite amazing! You are really perfecting these!

If you don't mind, can I ask how much flash you used in each and how you fused them?

Ventsi: I use 2g of KNO3 50 S 30 Al(dark) 20 flash in each bombete. Fusing is simple: I just ram visco into kitty litter. This is how my bombete look like:

WOW!! That's awsome. Just curious, why do you use a wood plug on top??? Also, how many hours does it take to make something like that? I'm sure you get to a point where you just have basically a manufacturing line lol.

I wasnīt able to watch the vid, but here are a few questions:

- is it right that youīre using low-quality paper, as found in consumer cakes, to roll the units? I found that theyīre never made from kraft...
- whatīs their wall thickness?
- did you ever use a thinner wall and did you see an improvement in the breaks when swichting to thicker walls?
- why are you using nitrate flash, itīs rather uncommon?
- the wooden top plugs are nice. I found it hard to sufficiently plug the top. The clay bottom plug is something that spoils the case balance in these bombettes, but itīs necessary for the delay.
- what kind (rolled etc.) and size of stars are you usually using for both tailed and color stars? What are they based on, chlorate or perc?

Hope you reveal a few details! Iīd appreciate a future personal talk by the way, Iīve also been into bombettes for quite a while.

they were paper tubes (take a look at the pics)

I wasnīt able to watch the vid, but here are a few questions:

nitrate flash is fairly common among armatures for breaking cake inserts I have seen it done a few times and do it my self for my 2" sky puke shells and they break well enough

Hello all, sorry for slow response. I will try to answer to your questions.

Portfire: To fuse this cake i use Visco, Fast Visco and Quick match

AdmiralDonSnider:
-Yes, I am using low-quality paper.
-About 2 mm
-No, I always use tubes with 2 mm wall thickness.
-I use nitrate flash, because it is powerful enough to me. And in my country perchlorate is not very cheap.
-I use only tailed stars because like i sayed perchlorate is not very cheap for me. Now i am trying to use chlorate stars but i am just starting :) In my cakes i usually use rolled TT (5-6mm) and pumped Win23 (6mm) stars.

Sorry for my bad English.
Coil.

Iīm pretty sure he used 3/4FA or a pulverone equivalent.

The only thing that I donīt like about this kind of bombette design is the wooden plug. On the other hand itīs hard to find a good top plug. Many commercial units do use a clay bulkhead pressed in place, others use multiple disks or cardboard end plugs. I tend to think that the clay bulkhead is something that spoils the case balance, as mentioned above. If the top plug is flimsy, the bombettes tend to make a spray or bow-tie type break, nothing symmetric.
