The cap is completely filled with epoxy, making it even stronger.
Some people would say a chap stick container would be an unsafe chamber;)

Cool Frank...a his and hers model now huhhh... :wink: I'm glad you're having fun with them. There's something kind of primal about the basic combustions. I used to have on and off trouble with them...seemed like it was based on the weather, humidity, blah..... got tired of fooling with them.

Good paint job!
