Well, first you need two wires for a spark gap. When I used them for my minis I took off the rubber thing off the bottom of the piezo ("clicker") and attached a wire to the copper cap that the rubber was protecting. Then you take the wires, and place them close to eachother (but not touching) and click it, it should spark across the wires if done right.

Moved.

Just for future reference, just PM a mod Drac or who else in the event of something of this matter, so not to disrupt the flow of the conversation.
