HOWTO setup a rocket for electrical ignition!

We were going to make a fireworks DIY for New Years but didn’t really know how to set the
electrical ignition for it. Well, we just found one for rocket ignition that could work for our Chinese
New Years DIY.

Now we get to see some great closeups of my favorite alloy (aside from inconel that is): nichrome. Nichrome is great. It’s cheap, heats up nicely, and doesn’t oxidize very easily. Beat that, tungsten carbide. You had to resort to a nonmetal.

As I was saying, wrap the nichrome around all three fuses, and attatch your lead wires to it.

Coat the igniter in some more nitrocellulose laquer, and prime it with some more black powder. It is now ready to be launched.
