Hi guys,
what I would like is some info for some sort of device to set off flash string with the press of a button, or something to that effect, I don't want to have to hold a lighter or match to it.
the idea would be to have the gimmick built into a table.
any ideas would be great
Thanks,
Dave Major M.M.C.

Check out Adam Topham's Illusioncraft (although I bought two devices at Blackpool from him, neither of which worked) - he sells something you may be looking for...
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex

Model airplane glowplug or a small bit of nichrome wire on top of a table.

Jim Pace has several flash/fire objects. One is his battery powered one called "The Igniter".

Hey guys, this is low tech easy and cheap. Use silver bead wire, a 9v battery, and rig flat silver alarm tape going to a switch.
Real thin, and will ignite flash string.
I also have my original ninja bombs from 1980.
Cap ignition for flash devices. Throw it on the floor and explodes.

I use the igniter; you could use it on your person or install it into a table if you wanted to. This is a great gimmick for igniting flash products and leaving your hands clean.
