I purchased one of the piezoelectric ingnitors from the sci toys store but the all the directions for the film cannister cannon show ingnitors with two places to attach wires. This one has what looks like one wire (yes its multi strand). How do I use this kind?

Thanks a lot for the reply and info. My daughter and I have been working on a science project for school and we first tried to build the simple crystal radio with dismal results so we decided to build the Film Can Cannon and try out different fuels to see which would work. The Binaca really does do the best job. Anyway it is a great success. By the way the project is due tomorrow. Cutting close.

Where are Brass wires obtainable from houshold items? I know that coat hanger wires work but they are hard to bend. Please help.
