Free Roll of Flying Fish or Falling Leaves Fuse for Every $50 Spent – expires 10/12/13


Now’s your chance to get a free roll of flying fish or falling leaves fuse!

These fuses are fantastic for quick and dirty rocket toppers, 2″ cylinder shells, and even fun little projects like this — the world’s smallest spinning fireworks wheel.

I LOVE this one!

Step 1. Cut a piece of corrugated cardboard 3 inches long x 1/2 inch wide.

Step 2. Cut two pieces of flying fish fuse (green in picture) 1-1/2 inches long. Insert them into the ends of the cardboard as shown in picture above. Secure with glue if too loose.

Step 3. Cut a piece of Quickmatch Visco (white in picture) GN1105 and attach to the ends of the fish fuse as shown in the picture above.

Step 4. Cut a piece of standard Visco fuse (red in picture) and tape it to the Quickmatch Visco (white in picture) as shown.

Step 5. Poke a small hole in the center of the cardboard as shown, and insert a metal wire, paper clip, or long skinny nail. The wheel assembly should be loose and able to spin freely on the wire.

Step 6. Add a tiny drop of glue to the metal pin on either side of the cardboard/wheel so the wheel does not slide up and down the wire. Allow to dry.

Step 7. Stick the wire in a wood post horizontally and level. Now light it!

You can change wheel colors by using different colored fuse. Or make it into a crackling wheel. Or… or… or…

This is a great project to do with younger children. Fast, safe, quiet, and you can do it almost anywhere, except in Lurleen’s kitchen. Nosirreebob. Do not try this in Lurleen’s kitchen, nor anywhere else in Lurleen’s house. Or you will be sorrier than a coon romancin’ a polecat.

This is just one of the many projects you can make from flying fish and falling leaves fuse.

    Add 31 grams of a plastic elastomer (sold under the trade name Kraton 1107) into 50 grams of toluene while stirring the
    toluene. The elastomer readily dissolves in a few minutes at room temperature to form a clear solution. Next, add 600
    milligrams of aziridine BA114 compound (commercially available), and then add 32 grams of aluminum powder with vigorous
    stirring of the toluene mixture, and after the addition of the aluminum, add 136 grams of ammonium perchlorate while
    maintaining strong stirring. After addition of the ammonium perchlorate, stir the mixture for 2 hours at room temperature.
    Afterwards, pour the mixture into a shallow pan with a high surface area and allow the toluene to evaporate (can take up to 3
    days). After the odor of toluene is gone, remove the dry solid propellant and then chop it into tiny pieces. To use the propellant,
    place the chopped-up pieces of dry solid propellant into a beaker, and then heat to 150 Celsius until the propellant becomes a
    viscous liquid. Then pour the viscous liquid into any desirable mold or container (make sure the mold or container can
    withstand a temperature of 150 Celsius). Then cure the mold or container for several days at room temperature. After several
    days, the propellant can then be removed from the mold or container in one piece. The mold or container should be the same
    diameter and desired shape of the rocket motor body. The mold or container can act directly as the rocket motor body if
    desired, according to design and function. Note: Do not use a blasting cap or detonator for initiation. High velocity solid
    propellant well suitable for rockets, and missiles. Note: In wartime a major drawback to this propellant is the amount of visible
    exhaust smoke produced. The exhaust will be a dense white smoke. Commercial & Industrial note: For related, or similar
    information, see Application No. 272,859, June 12, 1981, by The United States Army, to Henry C. Allen, Decatur, AL. Part or
    parts of this laboratory process may be protected by international, and/or commercial/industrial processes. Before using this
    process to legally manufacture the mentioned explosive, with intent to sell, consult any protected commercial or industrial
    processes related to, similar to, or additional to, the process discussed in this procedure. This process may be used to legally
    prepare the mentioned explosive for laboratory, educational, or research purposes. Can I Make It at Home?
