Rockets!

I have an old gunpowder rocket lying around in the garage, I am debating whether or not to dig it out. It is a fairly simple thing if I remember correctly, only 2 stages and the payload has a parachute for landing. I would like to know if anybody is interested in seeing a video / slideshow / instrucable on it? While I'm there I might find my old water rocket valve. And if I'm feeling really bored, I might make my own rocket and charges :-)

ELECTRIC SPARKER, IGNITER

Do you know a schematic for a machine that makes sparks for igniting gunpowder or other flammable things? Something easy to make, but effective, so I can light up gunpowder at a distance of 20m. Something whit transformers or capacitors...

Steampunk weaponry

Just to discuss all things related to steampunk weaponry (actually I am after some design insight) I'm building a steampunk longgun(micro-sniper) and It will shoot stuff, unlike all the other steampunk guns I can find here. It will be a functional piece, except not utilizing gunpowder ammunition. Anything relating to homebrew loading mechanisms, coils, design, etc would be awesome.

Missing Question

I entered a question about if a wired detonator with a 9 volt that is linked to steel wool would burn hot enough/long enought o ingite either aerosol or blackpowder for projects i mess with and it never appeared and idk why. Basicaly my question was..would a 9 volt with 1 wire to each terminal with aligator clip on each wire with a peice of steel wool clipped into each 1 burn hot enough and long enough to ignite aerosol or gunpowder. Idk why my question is missing and im really hoping for a quick answer on my problem and question.

Warning to anyone who does explossives

As a former pyrotechnician, I fell like I must war people how dangerouse this shit is. Black powder is a high explosive and can be detonated with a slight impact of a feather. Flash powder is EXTREMELY DANGEROUSE, IT CAN BE DETONATED WITH OUT SPECIFIC REASONS. AMMOUNIUM NITRATE Is also another highly unstable high explosive, it can be set of even if you drop it. Gasoline is a high EXPLOSIVE, it just takes a spark to detonate. That why they are use in cars! DON"T LISTEN WHAT THESE OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT GAS NOT BEING AN EXPLOSIVE, IT REALLY IS AN HIGH EXPLOSIVE, I know this because I'm an pyrotecnic. Molotov cocktails are often used in the army, they canblow up holw rooms, and if the fire on the rage hits the inside of the jar youre dead. Sparklers are another high explosive, thats why they are illigal, they can detonate and blow your whole arm off. M-80 can blow up for no specific reason, the gun powder(AKA BLACK POWDER) is extremely unstable. Match heads are also as unstable as gunpowder, it can even ignite under it's own weight. Nitrogen triiodide is also unstable. Thermite can detonate with a powerful heat and force but it can only be detonated with magnesium. Pottasium nitrate can even blow up if you just leave it there. SO, DO NOT BE DOING THESE FIREWORKS!
