Does anyone have a good Instructable that involves something going boom or making a big flash? Answered

Hey. I am a new member to Instructables and like things that go "boom" and "fwoosh". Please send me some!

Have you tried searching for key words like explosion, bang or fireworks?

That's the biggest tin I've seen used - any thoughts as to why the lid didn't hit the ceiling? L

It's not a really tight fit, so I tape it down to increase the pressure (without the tape, it goes fuff and rocks the lid).

I have an unsubstantiated idea, though, that it's to do with the proportions as well - a taller, narrower tin may have been more "cannony", since less energy would be lost flexing the horizontal flat surfaces.

My thinking was that you create the explosive mix in the centre, but around the edges it's still quite rich. If you got the right mix in a tin that size, the blast would be borderline-safe/hazardous I think? L

I wonder if I could add a small fan...?

Another disappearing comment... You might be able to get motor brushes to ignite the mix - no flame ? L

Nope, sorry. We don't have anything at all like that here. Don't even bother trying to use the I'bles search.

I would send you some, but apparently it is considered illegal to mail a bomb, even if its a private message :]

Okay. Thanks. I really wouldn't be comfortable just having a bomb being mailed to my house just as much as the police.
