— Posted by thephreak on 3:50 pm on Dec. 24, 2001

does anyone have any advice/recipies for someone new to pyrotechnics? And also where i can get the stuff considering i live in england. Thanks yall


— Posted by largeidaccam on 11:49 pm on Dec. 25, 2001

just the obvious like be careful an just read through all the posts an youll gradually know what te hell potassium nitrate is an stuff like that easy


— Posted by The Great Milenko on 1:52 am on Dec. 26, 2001

Yeah i second that, learn all the stuff you can about everything your going to be doing and always plan everything, never use metal bowls to mix things and other obvious safety things like that


— Posted by thephreak on 7:37 pm on Dec. 26, 2001

thanks for the advice! i found a great mag at http://www.gear-mag.co.uk, an i think its an excellent source of info

as a rule of thumb, never mess with explosives if you’re not feeling too good. Being drunk, stoned, tired, sick, whatever increases the likelihood of an accident alot which you’ll learn to regret, don’t mess around in rooms with substance leaks, faulty elecrical wiring, candlelit areas or other bad shit.

Rage against the machine is cool

RATM is pretty cool. What other bands does anyone else like, im trying to find somethin new to listen to.

To end on a relevant note i read that you can get powder from those model rockets. You cut the engine open and get a block of explosive and what i read said you’re supposed to crush it. Isnt this bloody dangerous? i dont wanna blow my arms off

LOL nahh it’s not “a block of explosives” as you so eliquantly put it it’s merely a low order version of black powder that has been compressed into a block and as long as you dont use metal tools to crush the block it’s pretty much 100% safe and if it did ignite it would just flare up and nothing like blowing your arm off, even so i would suggest you crush it up outside, but you would have ample time to step back if by some chance it did ignite. It’s a great substitute for black powder, it’s not as powerfull but still audible in a c02 bomb or somthing like it.

Thanks for the advice. Personallly im not interested in vandalism and saying to all my friends “im cool i can blow up a coke machine”, im interested in understanding how these things work and what effects they have


— Posted by moorey on 12:11 pm on Jan. 18, 2002

of course .. great advice.  though i share ur view thephreak- its good just having a site like this to learn shit from.. then when u figure uve got some advice and knowledge as regarding what ur willing to experiment with- the safer reactions first- it becomes time for experience


— Posted by thephreak on 2:46 pm on Jan. 18, 2002

yeah it is great to have some where to learn all this stuff. If i hadnt found this place i probly would have found the anarchists cookbook, tried using it and killed myself. So respect to xplosive


— Posted by Gas Can on 4:21 pm on Jan. 23, 2002

The best thing for newbies is the smoke bomb because it won’t blow your arm off, but it can burn you.  Just mix 4 parts sugar and 6 parts potassium nitrate over a low flame until it is liquid.  Then pour in a container.  Make about 5 pounds of it and light it near the street.  It will cover a few blocks and will cause some major car wrecks.  Also you can mix foam and gasoline to make some napalm.


— Posted by thephreak on 10:04 am on Jan. 27, 2002

and where would i go about getting potassium nitrate in the uk? or this there something i can substitute it for?


— Posted by dellexo on 8:53 pm on Jan. 27, 2002

Work’s just as well with sodium clorate weed killer wich can easily be purchased in any garden center/diy shop in the U.K.Have a look through the forum to see how to purify it although it still works O.K. straight from the tub:biggrin:

issue 11 i think

Oh yeah dellexo finally got my hands of some the stuff works great 😉

— Posted by firestyle on 10:39 pm on Jan. 30, 2002

have you tried the weed killer version? you sure it works. do you mix it the same as the kno3 version?


— Posted by Sicopath on 4:03 am on Jan. 31, 2002

It would be a good idea to d/l the Makeshift Arsenal, it has lots of good shit for n00bs and has diagrams and stuff.
Best reading i’ve had for a long time.


— Posted by thephreak on 2:48 pm on Jan. 31, 2002

yeah i got thet a coupla days ago and it is pretty interesting. Its good to have somethin that tells you all the details, such as sensitivity, so i actually know what im making. Some of the other files are bloody complicated though


— Posted by The Great Milenko on 5:06 am on Feb. 1, 2002

Yeah! i hafta give my props to lowry his book kicks! much better than those SuPeR KeWl cook books and such.

Told you so ,and it’s so cheap:biggrin:


— Posted by thephreak on 4:59 pm on Feb. 13, 2002

I just started listenin to system of a down, so i found me a new band. Where the hell do they get their lyrics from? “pull the tapeworm out of your ass…hey” is this a point about society or just plain bizarre?

To end on a relevant note what material doe anyone recommend for a pipebomb? i  can get hold of copper easy but it creates a lot of shrapnel doesnt it?, what about pvc?


— Posted by preditor on 12:32 pm on Feb. 14, 2002

If your a newbie start off with pyro stuff and work your way up to the more refined explosives that you need special chemicals for. you have to make a an incindenary bomb before you make plastiq

       Am I the only one who likes Marylin Manson and Jack Off Jill, oh well

Were can i get this book?


— Posted by chroniccrescent on 3:53 pm on April 3, 2002

can u use sodium chlorate for the smoke bomb???

i found it in focus DIY for 1.48 a kilo!:shocked:


— Posted by qmakowski on 4:07 pm on April 3, 2002

rules of thumb when making explosives. by me… the expert.
1. dont smoke
2. good sources make good bombs
3. make sure you test it in a safe area. not a dry weeded field or you will have to explain alot.
4. being stoned makes it fun but dont drop anything.
5. do it with one of your buddies from  chemistry at school. they should know the diffrence between some dangerous things and really good ones.
6. and finally if all else fails… ask the guy down the street with only 2 fingers 😉


— Posted by jam181 on 3:51 am on April 4, 2002

I am a noob. I just want to know how to make a small fire-cracker type thing. I live in england so it is shit hard to get chemicals. Also do match heads work as an explosiv? Thnx


— Posted by spunkymunkey on 5:07 am on April 4, 2002

georgekh:
go here for the Makeshift Arsenal:

chroniccrescent:
I think someone may have already posted info on using sodium chlorate but go here:
http://www.gear-mag.co.uk/GEAR%2011.htm for info and pictures on making plastique/smoke bombs.

— Posted by qmakowski on 9:18 am on April 4, 2002

yes matches work. use the strike anywhere ones. round up your family, give’m a box of matches and watch tv. cuting match heads off give hours of fun for the whole family 🙂


— Posted by jam181 on 11:56 am on April 4, 2002

thnx for the info on match heads but are they powerful enough to blow car tires or to make small shapnel bombs ?Do they work better powdered?:confused:


— Posted by qmakowski on 12:16 pm on April 4, 2002

ok here is a little bomb for you newbies out there. ever heard of solidex? well it’s sticks of solid oxigen you can buy at your hardware store. they are used for welding. grind them bitches up but be really easy and careful since they can ignite with friction. fill up a M&M mini’s container full of the shit and put m-80 wick on it. that should blow up a mailbox or two. NOTE: 2years ago a kid blew off 4 fingers trying to make a pipe bomb with it so be CAREFUL


— Posted by zx9 on 1:35 pm on April 4, 2002

do you have to grind up the solidox.
can you just take a stick of it, put a hole in the top and stick a fuse in it?
that would be safer because u dont have the risk of it igniting wen u r grinding it up


— Posted by qmakowski on 2:56 pm on April 4, 2002

not really. see if you do that it will burn like it was supposed to and just burn straight down. you could iguess. break it up and try it in pieces. a good way of using it and not breaking it up is to surround it with black powder. that makes a good bang. if your going to use pure solidex you have to break it up or it wont exploed and just burn. see if you grind it up you have oxigen between the little pieces and it’ll burn as a whole and explode.


— Posted by The Anarchist on 12:57 am on April 5, 2002

would the store clerk at a hardwear store let a 14 year old kid buy solidex


— Posted by Egg411 on 7:44 am on April 5, 2002

thats just an oxidizer if you wanna it to burn i think you need to add fuel to it.  i’m not really sure what would make a good fuel.  try stufff and see what works


— Posted by chroniccrescent on 8:25 am on April 5, 2002

sugar is a good fuel (Glucose would be better seeing how it is probably pure energy but it would be hard to find) a 1:1 ratio of fuel/oxidiser should do the job, grind them up (individually!) for a better and quicker burning rate. if ur gonna make these, put them in PVC tubes, the heavy duty ones and use water/pressure proof fuses or cannon fuses.

(Edited by chroniccrescent at 8:26 am on April 5, 2002)


— Posted by qmakowski on 9:22 am on April 5, 2002

it dont matter how old you are. i’ve been buying solidex since i was 13 ;). anywho yes you do need another fuel with it. burning is striaght works but you gotta grind it up first. it’ll exploed. also 1:1 with gunpowder works good. gun powder works good. if you strap nails around the bomb, throw it under some1’s car. it’ll take out a tire and a gas tank. have fun 🙂


— Posted by jam181 on 11:31 am on April 5, 2002

i made my first bomb! It was a small match head bomb and worked quite well. If i made a bigger one and strapped it to a deoderant can would it blow up the can aswell?How big would it have to be?


— Posted by paladinpress on 8:44 am on April 7, 2002

I like Hexamine/sodium chlorate/ammonim nitrate mix 3:1:1 that will take hair off your balls


— Posted by chroniccrescent on 11:08 am on April 7, 2002



Quote: from qmakowski on 9:22 am on April 5, 2002
1:1 with gunpowder works good.

Why an an oxidiser to an explosive which does not need it?


— Posted by JaMeZz34 on 7:56 pm on April 7, 2002

wud this work: I have this household cement glue, i was wundrin that if i put sum into a container and put a fuse into it b4 it dried out…and lit it….wud it go BOOM!!

Cheers
