What to Do With Your Last Match.

Intro: What to Do With Your Last Match.

Seeing the instructables on fuses I thought I will make a similar one with just a length of string.This 'Fuse' took me 6 seconds to make.

Note this is not really a fuse.I'm only using the term fuse as I don't have a better way of referring to it

This is useful if you want to light several things like Cigarettes , fireworks and other stuff but you only have one match to do it all. I have attached a video to show how easy it is. This fuse is very safe and can burn for a long time but the cons is that it doesn't produce a enough energy for lighting bigger stuff (like charcoal ).

Step 1: Light Your String.

Really all you need to do is light your string and kill the fire by shooting it with your finger or blowing it out(as shown in the video).

Disclaimer:Do this at your own risk.(not that it's a risky process)

    If you have a box of matches you can cut off all the heads, grind them up and dissolve in water. Then soak the string in the solution and let it dry. That's how you can make an actual fuse. (Not sure if a box is enough or too many or what ever, I am just estimating at 1 box.

     Just soak the string in gasoline and.... better yet: spread gasoline liberally on surface and light with match so you can light up more strings which will light up more gasoline and.... nvm

    You buy a lighter, and forget this ever happened.

    More than an idea, less than an instructable. So you're saying that it's a candle? Lol.

    this is called a "Punk" and is often used to light multiple fireworks with one match. (Just to clarify)
