Fire Safety!

I became interested in hobby electronics after seeing this instructable: Light BarWith projects like this, the more components I buy, the cheaper each component is (ex: buying LEDs in bulk) so I will likely end up with more parts than I would want for myself. If I make a lot of these things (or similar projects) and give some to friends, how can I make sure that they are completely safe?

Fire Kit

Here's an idea for a fire kit, not necessarily for survival or emergency. Someone want to make an ible out of it ? The idea here is that a coke can, once  completely dry, could provide both lightweight waterproof storage for tinder and lighting , and  also be an item to help structure the fire layout to provide proper draft and heat containment, . After the can is  dry you could stuff in some matches and cotton lint or vaseline balls, maybe a magneium stick. Maybe an obviously small candle.  Some items may need wrapping.  Then duct tape the hole When it came time to use, open with a knife. How exactly I would use the can to structure the fire is an open question.

Help with fire concrete/ forge making Answered

Firstly "Hello all", I am a long time lurker, first time poster. With that out of the way, I am gathering materials to make a small gas forge to cast some bespoke jewelry for my lady wife. I know there are lots of instructables regarding the process, but all seem to contradict each other in some way. I am going to use Fire Concrete as the lining as I got 2 tubs super cheap, and the pot says to increase temperature slowly over 4 hours and fix cracks that appear which is simple enough. Guides that use fire concrete just say "when its ready" then fire up the forge, but I dont know how to get it to the ready stage, do I need to fire it slowly over 4 hours or just cure it over night? And those that use quikrete say to bake the forge for several hours, but as I am using fire concrete do I need to do that or not? From what I have been reading around I cant do too much to mess it up, but I do need help with understanding how to cure the fire concrete Thanks

Question by thebeef2 9 years ago  |  last reply 8 years ago


Today I was shooting some targets with my SRC M16A3. All of a sudden, during a full auto burst, the gun stopped firing. Now, whenever I pull the trigger, I here this terrible whirring sound like a power drill, and the gun does not fire. I check the battery. Then, I tried to adjust the motor height, and that didn't do anything. I removed the motor from the grip to see if anything was wrong with it, and it is totally intact. Can somebody please explain to me how this problem can be fixed with minimal internal gearbox work? Because it is a sportline type gun, I don't feel that overhauling the gearbox with reinforced components would be worth the money or labor. I have a bad feeling that the bevel gear or piston may be stripped, and don't want to deal with the hassle of replacing, shimming, and re-lubricating all of the gears.

knex firing mechanism thingy

I didnt look around much so this may be old news... you can just delete this if it is the idea is that when you pull back and a little up the bolt pops out of the barrel and rests against the front of the chamber, until you push down on the hammer, which puts the bolt back in the barrel again :P if you make it with reds or grays they bend a bit much but it still works the problem is that theres no real way to make it bolt-action

BB firing flintlock mockup

Very long story short, I'm making a BB gun. I've got the basic ideas and mechanics almost done, its just a matter of making it work and materials. One of my big problems right now is that the gun will be .177, but it's going to mimic the look of an old flint or caplock muzzleloading pistol, which ranged from .36 all the way up to .80 in the largest ones. Obviously the barrel will have to be concealed within a larger, false barrel. My problem is making the real barrel attach securely without negatively affecting accuracy because it's off center. fitting the breech of the real barrel with a nut or a thread insert  has crossed my mind, but I'm not sure if It will be enough. pictured are some examples of caplocks so you have an idea of what the finished product is planned to look like

How do i make a "Book of Fire"?

Also called a "burning book", i saw this trick in a chem class once. the prof took a book off his shelf, plopped it open to some pages in the middle, then turned the page, making sure it rubbed along the page underneath (presumably for friction), then the pages burst into flame. really, the air slightly above the pages was the burning component, because he then slammed the book shut and CAREFULLY reopened it to the same pages to show they were undamaged. i can't figure out quite how it's done.

Rapid Arrow Firing System

It was only a very simple idea, just make a massive arrow holder and slide a rod through it.It shoots 13 arrows, with about the power of the v2.Problem was though...the massive amount of rubberbands made it bend all over the place; 13 times strings of 4... =52 which just doesn't work.It did shoot, but as you can see from the was not very sturdy lolThat rod with the wheels on it equals a black rod O.oAnd before you ask....everything except the trigger is taken apart already, as I consider it failed.And ofcourse I don't sit still, building something new already =dMight make one again, but on a smaller scale.

I can't find not one person to answer me I just want to be sure it can be fired in one before I purchase. Thank You so much!

Imitate Fire With Flickering LEDs?

I'm an artist looking to use this in a new series of work. I'd like to imitate fire inside a frosted globe with flickering LEDs, maybe several each in red, orange & yellow. Unfortunately I'm fussy about realism and electronics illiterate. It would be nice to be able to buy or build this part of the project for under $25 each and fit it inside a 2.5 inch (65 mm) circle. A battery operated circuit would be preferable but I could live with a 110v circuit if I had to.  What do you think? Can any of you electronics guys or gals get me set up here? I'm strapped for cash at the moment but if one of you can help me make this work I'll send you one of the first finished pieces, post an instructable on the project and give you credit for the electronic portion.
