i was just thinking, (i know i shoudn’t)  but what would happen if you were to take a can of oxygen (for a torch) put a little cratermaker straped to it all embedded in something that will burn good with oxygen. (i’ve read sugar but never tried it)   sounds like a ihave something to do tomorrow.  i’ll post some results if i do it.  if anyone has done it ,  what happens?

How thick is the tank wall. Plus pure oxygen will not burn if it displaces all of the fuel. I would sugest having the tank *Leak* before you try to ignight the cratermaker

ok take that oxygen tank and fill a garbage bag half full and then fill the other half with accetaline or however you spell it.  Then strap a crater maker on that.  dotonate from far away and if you like your hearing than hearing protection would be nice.  Do not do this in a building.

strapping a cratermaker to a trash bag is useless.  you could just ignite it with a fuse.  i am talking about blowing up a small can of oxygen (about 1 foot tall used for propane/oxy torches)  and a fuel.  maybe a can of propane and a can of oxygen at the same time.  who knows i’ll get back to you when i’m done with it
