New way to make spark strips?

Unread postAuthor: carlbelcher » Sat Jul 08, 2006 11:36 pm

I found this pen while I was at Radio Shack and I thought that it might work really well for making spark strips for combustions/hybrids. It a maker(pen) that writes with an conductive silver based ink. The only problem is it might wear off after a while, but I guess you could just draw it back on.

Go to advancedspuds.com and then to ignition. Or you can just go look at the wiki.

Lol, spark stripe, my local Radio Shack sells thoose for like $5, how poor are you benstern? :lol:

I was drilling a hole in my camera flash circuit and the board broke off so I used some of this to fix it and it worked great, If I had a stun gun I'd make a strip for you guys, but unfortunately I don't :D

So basically you use to "draw" wires onto stuff, the ink is conductive? That might have a few useful purposes.
