Project Inspired By:
This is a "King of Random" original inspired by a viewer comment on the slow burning fuse video.
This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training.
Pyrotechnics are not toys, and should be handled with extreme caution and respect.
Homemade rockets, no matter how small, may not be legal in your area.
Resulting damage may not be covered by your insurance.
Check city laws and ordinances before attempting.

Project History & More Info:
A viewer on a previous video asked if these types of fuses could be used to make a small rocket, in the same way a visco fuse rocket was made.
At the time, I wasn't familiar with what a Visco fuse rocket was, so did some experiments, and came up with these.
I've found they shoot around 50-100 feet, many times landing on the roof of my house.
The tape needs to be wrapped tightly around the nozzle to get a good launch.
If the tape is too loose, the fuel seems to blow out the end and the rocket doesn't go very far.
This poses a risk of burning fuse for a few seconds that fly out in all random directions.
I experimented in controlled conditions, and away from anything flammable.
Safety equipment was on hand at all times.
