If you can't figure out how to wire an igniter on your own, you shouldn't be building spudguns, and should instead be enrolled in preschool.

Interesting, a non-conductive alloy? Yes, they do exists, but you had some laying around in the garage?

Actually, the igniter isn't supposed to combust. The gas in the chamber is.

Okay, there should be two metal prongs on the sparker. One ont the side, and one of the bottom. Put any part of your body (the toungue works the best) on the prong on the side. Press the button. If you don't see a spark on your tounge, keep trying it. If you've been following my directions to this point, ask Pimpmann for a dumb ass award.

Seriously, put a wire on each prong, have the opposite ends of the wires almost touching each other, press the big red button, and you have a spark.

Now if you'll excuse me, the white-coated men are searching for me in my house again.

bob-a-lu What the hell? :? You made a second topic. I've PM'd you about this before you don't even provide much information in these topics, like what igniter you are using. There are loads of plans I know I have seen them myself but I don't feel like going through 200 search results but you are going to.

Locked - Because he made a second topic asking the same question.
