igniter test compilation (2012-04-17)

Testing bridges of solderless igniters with various bridge configurations.

Igniter test firings (2012-04-17)

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.

More igniter tests (2012-04-17)

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.
