Hi, I just ran across a video on youtube with instructions for building your own fireball shooter. This looks like the same sort sort of rig they use for making the theatrical fireball wands. It certainly seem as though a person could build the whole thing into a wand shaped unit. I thought someone might find it handy. Here's the link.

Hope someone finds that useful

This is neat. I made this back in the 1970's. The glow plugs were used in model airplanes. I used copper tubing and tapped it instead of the nut.

Also if you put a little black powder in the flash paper, it will shoot out and give a puff of smoke.

DO NOT PACK TIGHT!!!! It could cause the tube to blow up.

And as always, fire is really a dangerous and sometimes prohibited thing in this day and age. Be careful.
