If you want to set off det cord your main concern should not be how to make the detonator but how to attach it to the cord.

You'll easily find Army instruction manuals about how to do this. What's not so easy is to get it right.
Wanted to blow up stuff ? You'll have to learn about making knots first !

RDX is not a primary.
You can't buy it at walmart. In most countries its simply impossible to buy it legally. In the US there is a series of requirements, licenses and investigation for them to give you a permit.
RDX is pretty safe on its own, but you could plasticize it.
If you want a primary for detonators, I suggest DDNP or TACP (the blue one) and an ETN base charge at the bottom of the detonator.
I'm not sure how to make detcord go boom, but I guess you could insert the detonator in the detcord tube or even wrap it around the detonator body (specially at the end of it).




Oh, hello! :)

Lazy, spoon feeding post. This isn't worthy of being a topic in EM. Beginnings..



Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

I know, this whole thread should be laughed at from the comfort of detritus. Not only is it a duplication of other SM threads, but the subject is well depicted in the blasters handbook.

Are you making fun of the grammar misspelling or the method for detonating detcord?
I surely hope that its the latter, otherwise you'd be a very immature individual.

WTF! You don't know...I mean, seriously?

There's immaturity around, certainly...

Every now and then, I think about NBK. Then I usually breathe deeply and get on with life, not killing anyone who was just mildly annoying or anything like that. Hell, I'm usually even polite.

Anyhow. Detritus it is. He never came back under that account to see his answer, so I assume It's someone having a bit of a troll. Probably someone who is also here under another name, and knows exactly which of your buttons to push.
