    Since It's 4th of July Weekend.....

    In the spirit of the 4th of July weekend I thought I would post my electronic ignition system I built last year for fireworks.

    Basically its a plastic box with momentary switches that sends a current to 6 different feeds that will ignite an electronic match. Cost about $30 to build. I have ~200 feet of 5wire speaker cable that I use to connect to the fireworks stand. It lets me set off fireworks and actually watch them, instead of running for my life....



    Video of my buddy doing his best Steve Irwin impression for the first test run.



    Video of our finale last year using some timed fuse and the press of 1 button...



    If i can find the video I'll post my other friend's Freedom Helmut!!!

    Hope you enjoy and have a fun and safe 4th!!
