Impact Firecrackers

John Donner
 

A complete and comprehensive book about making explosive globe torpedoes, cap torpedoes, cane torpedoes, clay torpedoes, exploding cracker balls, auto tire blow-out simulators, and exploding blow-gun darts.

Contains substantial information from Tenney L. Davis' "Chemistry of Powder and Explosives," George W. Weingart's "Pyrotechnics," and Lancaster's "Fireworks: Principles and Practice."

Describes the dangerous processes of making highly sensitive throw-them-on-the-ground-and-they'll-explode type fireworks.  The experienced professional pyrotechnists on our staff strongly recommend that you do not make any of the products described here: they're much to dangerous to produce or store, due to the highly sensitive chemicals and processes required. 

The book also includes complete, detailed descriptions of the chemicals used, including information on their sources and preparation for mixing.

Nevertheless, this is an excellent reference text for any fireworks maker's library.  It includes obscure and esoteric information from several very old books and patents.  You won't find these formulae or compositions in most modern books.


The book has several detailed drawings, much larger than these, and at very high resolution

We found a few (new!) copies of this hard-to-find book at a local pyro club meeting, and bought what they had.  They won't last long, so if you want a copy, be sure to bid immediately.  "When they're gone, they're gone forever," because this book is out-of-print.

Size 11 x 8.5-inches, 33 pages, with seven drawings and several pyrotechnic formulations, plus a nice bibliography for further investigations.  Soft-cover, and nicely bound.  $19.95
