I've been looking for a day or so now and tried doing what I watched someone do with no luck. I want to make the little pull string igniters you find in party poppers like picrel.
I tried crushing up match heads and making a paste that I put on a string and small piece of paper and dryed it with a heat gun. I rolled it up and pulled with no result. Several attempts. I was hoping someone here would have some advice or experience with these.
And I know they're cheap and I could just buy some, but I like trying to make stuff and figured it'd be fun.
Is it true that smelling these makes your ass expand?
Only if you smell it as you pull the string.
Its always the last bit before it tapers down that hurts the most
What does "Never fake it, without it" mean?
So what happens if you sniff this?
You never fake it
gays take it to prepare for butt sex. in the words of prof. dr. martin ssempa, "it is so painful dey have to take drugz... but dey enjoy it."
IS DIS WOT OBAMA WANTS TO BRING TO DIS PAAAAHT OV AFRICA!? DE HUMAN RIGHT, TO EAT DA POO POO!?!?

I think the string is supposed to be "clean" and the paper tube wrapped around the string has the dried match heads. Perhaps a different type of string would generate more friction against the matches and thus more heat.
Also are you using "strike anywhere" matches and not safety matches?
Not strike anywhere. Just red wooden matches.
regular matchheads are not shock sensitive unless mixed with the red phosphorus from the matchbox stripe. I hear people scrape the bits of phosphorus off to mix with the matchhead powder.
one could consider using silver fulminate(NOT fulminated silver!) as an alternative. Thats the explosive used in bang snap toys
Poppers are ammonium triiodide. Crazy shit.
gunpowder is not friction sensitive. Wikipedia quotes that armstrongs mix is usually used
I think that's why I've seen other use armstrongs mix since it's the same as match heads almost.
This moron is making trip wire bombs
More interested in using them as noise making trip wires for when camping, but I did have that thought.
