    i made one from a big 4 pint milk bottle and i pressed the sprak thing and it didnt work and then really stupidly i toke of the cap and prseed the spark to see if it worked and a big flame came out and burnt my face, but the burn was really really minor and the next day my face is fine but really u should be careful with this sort of stuff

    Wow! I love the fact that you're using the two thumb-tacks to act as a conductor to make the spark, excellent idea!

    Its Too Small Of A Barrel If Your Going To Use That Big Of A Chamber :( As A Tip; Use Some Putty Or Something Around The Base Of The Pen to Keep Air From Escaping

    This one looks pretty easy/ cool to try out. Nice job.

    By the way, are you going to post a lot of Instructables for now on? :-)..
