mouthwash mini

Unread postAuthor: cardinals08 » Sun Jan 29, 2006 10:47 am

sorry again, but the submit combustion cannons is still blocked for me. please move this.

This is my latest mini. i used a travel mouthwash bottle, a pen tube, a piezo, and electrical tape, I use axe, right guard, or butane for fuel. Looks really cool at night.
total build time was only 5 minutes, the toughest part was poking the holes in the side of the bottle to get the wires in for the spark

Axe is a really good feul for mini's because if you barely push down on it, it lets out only Butane becauase I uses Butane for the Propellant...

I have way too much trouble using any fuel in my Mini really, but normally when it does work it's with Axe or butane...

I have a 100% spark because I solder'd and heat shrinked my igniter and my connections, but it still normally doesn't light.
