problems with my mini. fuel & ammo

Unread postAuthor: evileye250 » Mon Feb 06, 2006 2:45 pm

i made my first mini and finished it today.ive been shooting q-tips and using axe and hair spray. i think the hair spray shoots it farther but after 3-4 shots i have to clean it inside. this doesnt happen when i use axe. it seems that i get a film of it on the sparker. it also rusts it a little and the q-tip doesnt go far. what else can i shoot and what do you use for the sparker. im going to get some right guard or old spice soon. thanks

here it is

i use right gaurd, but its not too good anymore they took the propane out of it so now the only flammible thing is alchohol old spice is said to work well though i havent tried it, and your sparker (or one very similar)is what allmost all people use for minis good luck :wink:

yea i just used butane from a regular lighter and it works great. but the funny thing is is that the butane that came with the piezo doesnt work but the butane that came in a scripto lighter works realy well. it doesnt leave a film or any thing. i shot it like 20 or 30 times and didnt have to clean it. butanes the way to go. and the q-tips shoot real straight. :D

try useing butane refills, like for lighters, you can get them at just about any gas station, 18 cc bottle for like 5 dollars, just push in the tip and out come the gas, for a mini you will get a lot of shots, more then disposable lighter, will all so cut the cost, be like buying in bulk, it only take a little tiny squirt to make a big bang, 1 part butane to 2 parts air, you could try adding a refill nozzel out of a refillable lighter to your chamber for a quick fill port

good mini

let us know what you do and how it works out

also if you take the litter pressy downy thing off of a breath spray, you can stick that on the butane and that will make it come out easier
