hey neat little instructable I like it I have built many of these boxes and as the other comment said use the very fine steel wool it has a easier time with the battery to get hot for the ignition
I built something very simmilar but this is a nice instructable. You may want to include using the finest grade of steel wool just to clarify. I remember I went to the store once for this cause and was overwhelmed by the amount of different kinds! haha and and that project box was waywayway too big. I got away with a 3x2x1 box :P
