Fuse. Take the usual insulation from the wires or more are bonded together with straws for drinks. Fill their crushed heads of household matches, gunpowder or other combustible mixture. This method is convenient because our fuse will not blow out in the wind. Even if it rains, he can't be the wick to soak. To the "filling" of fuse not burn through too quickly, it can be compacted. If gunpowder and nothing else except for matches we have not found, you can save yourself from having to scrape from matchstick heads. Just break off them, spread in a row and wrapped with tape.
Jute wick. Take jute rope, soaked it in a solution of sodium or potassium nitrate and thoroughly dry. The wick is ready to use.
Stopin. To produce this wick, we also need jute rope, but old cotton can also be used. Steeped not too thick rope in a solution of saltpetre, dry it. But that's not all. Now mix organic adhesive with a powder pulp. Should get a homogeneous dense mass. Through this mass we need to stretch the rope. When it all hardens, the wick can be used.
Hunting matches themselves are excellent wick. They don't go out and burn about 20 seconds. But if our charge is not detonated prematurely, you need to follow matches from flying sparks.
Poplar fluff. Summer only version of the wick, as the poplar fluff allowed in June. But to do down the wick and is easier to impregnate nothing. Just put down, will primem him and wrap inside the rolled tube of newspaper or paper.
