rocket ignitors are made from a bent piece of nichrome wire with a chemical on the bend. the cigarette lighter in cars is made from a heavier nichrome wire.
I have a roll of 26ga nichrome wire, (36 feet to be exact) left over from a hot wire project. That's what I had in mind when I proposed the "slightly heavier nichrome wire".
Just wondering if it would have uses in this hobby too.
