Cool - maybe. I prefer more responsible methods. Hey - I'm a boring adult! I spread out my sawdust in an old tray and pour out my old paints to dry them out (neighbors paint also). I also give some to neighbors and friends who own and use wood stoves. They start their fires with it. Like I said, I'm a boring adult.

There's gotta be some kid in you somewhere B ;)

Aside from that it was pretty cool but it seemed like a very elaborate setup for giant smoke rings.

The US Military and the Sierra Club have just convened after seeing this to discuss an Eco Friendly Bomb.:gunsmilie: And it even sends smoke rings!

The Multi-Tasking Eco Friendly Bomb - blow up your neighbors and send them a farewell. Once they are gone, you're free to move in and set up shop. ;)

Lol

Apparently wood dust IS explosive under the right conditions.
I'll be tip toeing around with my dust barrels and avoiding road flares and other souces of ignition..... just sayin'

That would be cool to do as a weekly routine to dispose of the sawdust. Neighbours from near and far would come looking. Could be combined with BBQ and beer. Possibly it would draw the attention from some authorities as well. I wonder what paragraphs they would use to ban it?

Sorry I took this thread as a question of "what do you do with your sawdust?' rather then dazzling us with the display. As to jharris comment about I having a child in me... well, I know a lot about child behavior. I have 55 years experience being 7 years old and I'm good at it! Na na na na na! :laughing:

I think he meant that the fireball was quick. Either way, that was pretty cool. There's no way I would get away with that sort of thing around here in the city. Cool to watch though.
LOL just tell the authorities that you were using your shop vac and all of the sudden it went up in a ball of fire and smoke!
