In this part of my webpage I will show you how to make
a mid-sized salute with blackpowder. I know many people
will say flash is much better, but I'm afraid of flash
powder so therefor I get my jollies from bp:) Salutes are
illegal in most areas so I would recomend against making
this. Salutes can take off your much-liked fingers very
quickly! Remember, M-80s where banned for a reason, to
keep large crackers away from people who can't use them
safely( about 98% of the earth's population:) Salutes can
get you ito more trouble than any other type of firework,
so be carefull!
Get a piece of paper and cut it into a rectangle 2.5
inches wide and 4.5 inches long:
Roll the paper on a 1/2 inch dowel rod. Use tape and
glue to hold it into place:
Wrap the casing with nylon string to make it very
strong. Then wrap the casing with more tape.
Get two dowel rods and drill a 1/6 inch hole into the
center of each one. This is to make the top plug:
Make the top plug by puting one of the dowel rods into
the casig with about a half an inch from to top. Then put
the visco fuse wraped in Al foil in the dowed. You didn't
dril the hole too deep did you?? Then put some clay into
the space and, with the other dowel, rod ram the clay
plug.NOTE: make sure the fuse is free inside the dowel
rods, you don't want to bend or break it.
Next fill your salute with Bp. There is no set amount
with this salute, just start small with your first few
ones untill you get the feel for them.
Make a bottom plug of clay and paper towels. Use PVA
glue for the endplug.
Light fuse and run!!!!!
