Loud Explosion needed … no damage
— Posted by Bandit9 on 8:40 pm on Mar. 20, 2002
I need to know how to set up an explosion to scare some bad guys who are breaking into vehicles (mine). Power source will come from interior light to trigger explosion … sure would appreciate some advise on what to build (that I probably won’t do alot of time for) that will scare the shitrats into compliance.

Make an acetylene / oxygen mixture in a plastic grocery bag. Fill a small piece of wax paper with a little bit of black powder or some dry incendiary like sugar/nitrate, and stick an electrical igniter (model rocket or improvised) into it, twist it sealed, and tape to the bag. Attach leads to the igniter, and remove the battery terminals from your car. Open the door, wire the leads to the terminals of the dome light (you shouldn’t *need* to remove the lamp), close everything up, then re-attach the auto battery & close the hood.
If you’ve taken the time to experiment with the mixture of H2C2 and O2, this relatively small device will create a blast loud enough to temporarily deafen anyone opening the door, but will cause little or no damage. Make sure there’s no loose items (pencils, whatever) that could become projectiles.

Nice…I got one better…Make a bomb big enough the same way to blow the whole car up..When they find the car and the bodies just claim they picked on you all the time and disliked you and must have been trying to blow your ass up…Then sue their family for mental anguish, public humiliation and property damage and loss…Serves the fuckers right…PEACE

I’d suggest a simple cardboard tube filled with black powder and wired to a rocket igniter. Dangle this from a wire instead of leaving it somewhere, because it will singe whatever it’s touching when it goes off (not to mention make your car smell like smoke).
If you can get your hands on it, a smaller tube filled with flash powder would work better.

ya all of that makes good sense but how do i make a cheap and effiecent noise maker using only kitchen and cleaning materials

A jar filled with propane? That should be simple enough. Be sure to get a good fuel to air ratio (experiment first), because with no oxygen the propane will not burn.
The only explosive one can make from “kitchen and cleaning supplies” that I can think of is acetone peroxide, and I wouldn’t advice carrying that around in your car for any extended period of time.

make a giant smoke bomb and put a rocket ignitor in it, now wire it up so they are covered by a huge smoke screen…this will scare them when they think the car will blow up or is on fire…

Hey genius, chances are a “giant smokebomb” *will* set the car on fire.

No chances. A one pound KNO3/sugar smokebomb leaves a two foot wide singe mark on whatever you set it on when you light it. If you want to do that, put the smokebomb under the car, and away from the gas tank.

Zambosan I cannot thank you enough, built and tested according to your specks, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. Testing is complete, and the trap is set, it all goes according to schedule there should be a hearing impared theiving shitrat in my neighborhood by the end of the weekend.
Thanks again, you are an artist!!!

Haha… glad to be appreciated. Part of the beauty is that there’s very little evidence anything happened, and the idiots in all likelihood won’t hear the sirens and will be too stunned to run. The first time my stupid ass was playing with bags of C2H2 and decided to crank open the oxygen as well, the box of matches I was holding when I blithely tossed a lit one at the bag went flying onto my garage roof, and I was knocked on my ass. My friend was standing over me *screaming* at the top of his lungs, and all I heard was a monotonic high-pitched “eeeeeeeeeee….”
The lady across the street lurched out of her house to glare & look suspicious… I later found out that pictures had toppled off shelves on the inside of her exterior wall. :biggrin:
