How to Make professional grade homemade black match fuses

Check out this explosive video tutorial on how to make professional grade homemade black match fuses. This should only be done by experienced people with a pyrotechnics background, and for people who happen to have black powder laying around the house.

This is specifically a black match fuse, which is used in a lot of fireworks and other pyrotechnics. You need highly granulated black powder, string, water, a spare container and lid, scissors and a drill bit. Now, it's perfectly legal to make this, because it's just a fuse, not an explosive, so don't worry, have fun and be safe.

i think 99.9% acetone would work better then water, water ruins black powder, acetone doesn't and it evaporates in minutes

Cool! but why not use alcohol instead of water?
