If you want KN03,then go to your nearest fertilizer/rural feed and stock supplyer and ask for some,i got to Norco and they sell it for about $8 a KG but it does have clumps which need to be ground down and sived so its a nice powder.

No it's not KN03 it's KNO3. you guys should know your chemistry.

But yes it is a chemical, not a machine, i was rly suprised when i went on to the site and there was only machines???? i thought i had gone all retarded and couldn't fand anything. I don't mind grinding it up a bit, i was expecting it to be pellets, still havn't found any! Wish me luck!

Yeah any brand stump remover should work if you look on the back and see there is KNO3 in the ingredients. But its better to get pure KNO3, they sell it on ebay I bought 10 pounds for 30 bucks. Unfortunately its almost gone :cry:

ok guys if you want to make a smoke bomb go to lowes and buy stump remover make sure it says CONTAINS POTASSIUM NITRATE. I used spectrcide brand stump remover that comes in a grey bottle. Do not buy the brand in a white bottle with pruple letters on it. its not what u want.

to make the thing....
take 6 parts potassium nitrate(stump remover) and 4 parts table sugar in a pan and heat and stir it until it melts then pour it into half a soda can or bottle cap. stick a match in the top as a fuse. i suggest you cook this OUTSIDE i used the side burner on my bbq grill.(colman camping grills are good too) but becareful if u heat it over an open flame it can ignite if you dont watch it. also scrape the extra stuff out of the pan before making a new batch if you dont it will reheat and ignite the new batch
(i found this out the hard way)

no guys dont worry about exact volume and weight. just add six equal parts of KNO3 and 4 of sugar. EX: 6 bottle caps ful of KNO3 and 4 bottles caps full of sugar.

Holy crap guys... I really gotta wonder how dumb some of you guys can be.

http://www.bcvids.com/dload.php?action=file&file_id=1

Go to the store, find the stumpremover mentioned in the video and follow directions in the video. If you can't find that exact remover, write down the kinds they have, come home and look up their MSDS sheets on google. (MSDS sheets tell what all is in a product and the safety measures that should be taken around it)

Anyways look in the MSDS sheets for one that is 95%+ KNO3 aka Potassium Nitrate. Then follow the directions in the video.

If you STILL can't find it, go to a farm supply place or some sort of plant store, they should have fertilizers that contain lots of KNO3. Again, look up their MSDS sheets and find one with a high ammount of KNO3.

However be warned, don't go to a farm supply house and straight out ask for KNO3. Either they will not know what your talking about, or they will call the cops thinking your about to build a bomb.

KNO3 is also called salt peter that a person at a fertilizer place would recognize. i told the guy at the garden center that the company that took down my tree told me to get potassium nitrate to remove the stump and that KNO3 was the only thing that works
