I have tried making a smoke emitting gimmick using nichrome wire. I made a mini cup to fit it in. The problem is sometimes the heat element does not touch the smoke oil.

I have noticed that in model trains, the heating element is in a micro glass tube.

Any ideas on how else to accomplish this?

Ok guys.

A couple of ideas for the smoke producing gimmick. First for Lou's problem, I would made a partition inside the container so the liquid has to hit the wire. Maybe sloped or a funnel type thing that drips the fluid down and the smoke rises around the outside.

There is also a company called Zero Toys. Look at the Wizard Stick. It is a cheap easier way to make up smoke. It probably could be cut down and made smaller.

Maps..Let me know when your fishing arrives.
