Testing igniters made of Cat5 cable and 32AWG nichrome wire, dipped in QuickDip. Filmed using a Canon SD450 at 60fps. The first two tests are with igniters that didn't have enough and then had too much pyrogen and were therefore scraps.
Testing videos of igniter bridges using solderless technique. Bridge wire made of 32awg nichrome wire, leads made of 2-conductor phone line for some tests, Cat5 cable for others. Igniter resistance and wire type indicated for each test. Update: I believe the slow heat up times and dark smoke from the Cat5 tests may have been due to the battery I was using becoming drained.
