Topic: Self Combustion Flash paper gimmick
Message: Posted by: MopKrayz (Jun 17, 2005 01:42PM)
I am looking for a gimmick to seemingly make flash paper light on it's own, whilst held in the hand.
throughout the years I have seen many gimicks advertised. I even made my own out of a glowplug and battery.
Anyone can suggest similar gimicks, their pros and cons?

I love the igniter the best!!!

Great item from Jim Pace that will silently and motionless-ly ignite flash paper, string or cotton and leave you with empty hands without using sleeves.

I'm also looking for a way to ignite a piece of flash papaer inside a box without having to reach inside the box. Any ideas would be appreciated. I also remember seeing a pen that was designed to ignite fp but don't remember what it was called...anyone know??? Please pm me!

Thanks
Howard

Haslett has some very good fire products. I recently purchased his Pen Flash, and it sure is clever.

You could use a lighter from a model rocket engine and a charged electrolitic capacitor with a small switch. Very easy to make and cheap.

For WAND:
3v glow plug, temporary switch on outside of box, and 2 AA batteries hidden in false bottom of the box.
