On this page I will post my plans for future devices and adventures. Now it's mostly to remind me, but it may give you some ideas as well. Most of these things will be carried out (if indeed they do get carried out) at my annual pyro party (stories from previous parties in (mis)Adventures section).

I donít have much time for pyrotechnics lately for many reasons. Site updates will be slower in coming and perhaps smaller in scope. I am not giving up on the hobby, I just do not have a lot of time for experiments, testing and so on.

After rocket and HE phases, Iím now working totally on real pyrotechnics finally! Iíve stockpiled all the chems I need for oxidizers, fuels, binders, coloring agents etc and am in the process of making many different star formulas. These will be tested primarily in starmines, and favorite device of mine because they are both impressive and very easy. Eventually Iíll make shells, but I will wait until I have stars down pretty well first. If I get some decent tooling Iíll also make fountains and rockets at some point.

My HE phase has died down, but I still intend to work on TNP, HDN, NC, NG and some AN-based explosives at some point and actually get them to work (had some trouble with HDN and others for various reasons). I mainly want to make these just to document them for my site (and for bragging of course!) but it will be a while before anything happens as I am now quite busy with the above activities.

Firing Panel and Mortar Racks: For firing Class C shells and other fireworks, I want to have a decent electrical setup to fire multiple items. When I build these things I will use the directions from the excellent site Pyro Universe. Click here to see the firing panel and here for the mortar racks.
