Here is this comp using homemade aluminum powder ballmilled for 5 days in small lortone mill using ceramic media. It was a 1"x1" comet that I pumped in pvc pipe and drilled out using a 1/4" drill bit after fully dried and was 1/4" wide and 1/4"deep filled with 7-3 flash didn't even hold a half of a gram of flash..https://youtu.be/jXQb8PCB8pk

If there had been any 'pre-form' to the hole (square, X-shape, even triangular), that would've been a good crossette.

 

OF COURSE I don't have to warn you that drilling dried comps - and especially metal-bearing ones - is NOT good for your health.  But you already knew that, so I won't.

Yep I did, only hand drilling only slow as you go, I guess I should have mentioned that in the vid. And this is no way to do several of these just messing around with some home brew aluminum. The aluminum was way to fine for a glitter but was a neat effect...

Looked pretty good! I love the rapid fire!

How did you fuse those?

I have some of that and the almost quickmatch fast yellow that I've been trying to figure how to use in reloadable cakes in a fan pattern.

I know pvc isn't ideal but works just fine for test guns.

PVC is fine for star guns and small mines. It would suck for shells but I don't build those! I have a 20' stick of 1" schedule 80 PVC that I snagged just to build some quick shot fan racks with but haven't figured out how to build them yet.

I'm going to get me a ¾" crossette pump for those soon.

This is basically D1, but a little nicer, I think. 1" N1 comet made with -8 mesh black powder base.
