Why don't you put paper, or leaves, or soemthing in there, rather than ping pong ball bits? Do you really want you and your friends breathing plastic smoke?
mce128 cwmaurer2 years ago
Yeah, I know I'm kind of necro-posting here.. but I needed to clarify something. Ping-Pong balls are made from nitrocellulose (cellulose that has been treated with very strong nitric acid.) And as such they burn VERY well and rapidly when made into tiny bits or a powder. Being cellulose, they aren't really plastic, but acid-treated wood or cloth. Although, some ping pong balls have ignition inhibitors in them so they don't burn very well, so one would want to be sure to get ones that do not have this.
In the end smoke is smoke and it is all dangerous

i have a bad feeling about doing this because if u pull the string it might ignite everything and explode in ur hands
persia85 zgr952 years ago
use flour instead of ping pong balls a little though
dim20 zgr952 years ago
add some large string to it tape the smoke bomb on ground and pull from distance to try xD
zgr95 dim202 years ago
ehh better just to get the real stuff especially for woods games
noah1r zgr956 years ago
i agree

I'm anxious to try this and see the results. I'm primarily curious about the amount of smoke it produces. Is it enough to provide any tactical benefits in a paint ball game as you suggested? I'd also like to experiment with other materials besides a ping pong balls perhaps, though I'm sure you had a good reason for choosing that specifically. Good instructible, and don't let them bug you about your spelling.

thanks you very much, another smoke option is kno3 with is K and some suger (cooked)
Uh, what?

K is Potassium.  NO3 is Nitrate.  KNO3 is Saltpetre.
Sugar is C12H22O11.


HF TMM iTraceur4 years ago
Sugar is C6H12O6....
Sugar (Sucrose) is C12H22O11.
Glucose is C6H12O6.
Both types of sugar but, normal sugar is Sucrose
Delo97 HF TMM4 years ago
No it's C12H22O11
"with is K and"

say wha?

not quite sure i understand that part >_<
lambman64 (author)  Father Christmas6 years ago
sorry, when you cook kno3 and sugar it makes a "peanut butter" like mix. which gives off heavy smoke when lit
Note to self:  read ahead more often.  /facepalm
Making sense now.

well i know that, ive known that for quite some time. but i just didn't understand the word usage
I saw another instructable that made sense of the ping-pong ball decision. I understand now.

how long does it take to start emitting smoke
BADWOLF16 years ago
y do u need ping pong bits
Kaiven BADWOLF16 years ago
Makes smoke
Arbitror Kaiven6 years ago
Toxic smoke...
How toxic are we talking here?
Google the symptoms.
is the ping-pong ball parts neccesary? because I would like to use this for my character in a play that I am in, but I prefer not to be gassing the audience and everyone else on stage...

kutz RC-07204 years ago
meh u could try the hommade chemical way suggested but either way its toxic if u inhale it a lot like if u were spraypainting something in a confined space, just vent the theatre a bit more and u'll be fine
Zealous Scotish6 years ago
Pretty certain that if you want to keep your fertility you don't want to breathe this in. ;)

illeagle REAEPR5 years ago
Great then you probly got nuthin to worry about..... do you?
hah that makes me lol
dhuynh2895 years ago
 is this smoke toxic?
 Yes, this is toxic and I probably don't recommend using this one. It's better to find a tutorial that uses Potassium Sulphite (can be found in fertilizer)
