Posted:

**Thu Nov 02, 2006 12:59 am**Atm I have a simple BBQ piezo ignitor as my Ignition system for my cannon

Between my nails there is a 6mm gap,

I have been trying to make an electrical ignition system (simple buttons/switches)

I just want to know what type of battery/how many volts i will need to get a spark across a 6mm gap

(I did electronics in my 4 years of seinor school, so i know the basic terms)
